Concern : application for Business Analyst Internship

Sir, Madam,

I am currently a student in last year of Master Degree of Business Engineer at the Catholic University of Leuven. As part of this qualification I started a course program relating in majority to Finance and Accountancy understandings as well as a minor in Human Resources Management. Upon reflection, I made the choice to realise an internship during the first academic semester 2015-2016 whereby I definitely will be able achieve my educational career and obtain my graduation.

In order to put my current background into work and particularly my knowledge in management and organisational strategy, I am highly interested in the opportunity you are offering to follow a minimum 6 week management consulting experience by September of this year.

I believe the today’s economical environment -in which firms are developing themselves, are growing so fast and will run their varieties of projects and inventions- is rich in all types of unexpected and surprising events. Besides, these issues the enterprise has to deal with are often of great importance and a guarantee of their survival.

Consequently, I feel myself interested in helping clients to implement their own operations, to decide about how to make the more appropriate, attractive and lasting choice in terms of performance and to enabling them to keep their improvement exponential in time. In this perspective, the objective of successfully going through such major challenge within a team of consultants and in the permanent interest of the client has particularly caught my attention.

That’s why the integration of your company, I am sure, will enable me to develop my skills as well as to consolidate the choice of my future professional path.

Thanking for your interest in my application, I remain at your entire disposal for any additional piece of information.

Sincerely yours,
