Sample cover letter for Full Time position at isb


associate consultent

I am submitting my application for your perusal and kind consideration for the post of Research Associate in the field of business administration and strategy. I want a career in research and teaching of management. In particular, I am interested in business strategies, factors that affect the competitive performance of a business, the manner in which changes in technology or substitution products affects an organisation's performance, product and customer segmentation, supply chains and distribution networks. In order to gain an appreciation of these issues, it is essential for me to gain a general management perspective.

I believe that working as a research associate on a project (with concentration in Management) would be invaluable in helping me achieve these objectives. It would enable me to challenge my quantitative and analytical skills in understanding business issues and would open up new avenues in research. Subsequent to this, I would like to apply for Ph.D. at a leading university; and investigate issues concerned with technology as it affects organisation strategy, structure and systems.
