STATEMENT OF STUDY PLAN
My decision to apply for master program in XXXXX at XXXXX is driven by my strong desire to make the urban area in Indonesia, especially Jakarta, to become a better place. Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia, as the center for all functions (government, business, education, entertainment and also a place to live) should have a good city management so that it can run all its functions properly. Next year, Jakarta will become a 482 years old city. It’s already too old for the city to stay in this poor city management condition, so a good city management should be implemented in a short time. Offering interesting subject in XXXX and a chance to study overseas makes me eager to pursue this scholarship. I believe this program will help me achieving my career plan.
For research topic, I am interested in urban transport management. I intend to compare the study on urban transport system in my country (Indonesia) and Japan. The reason why I’m interested in this topic is because the biggest problem in Jakarta nowadays is about the poor public transportation system. Jakarta which currently is one of the most populous cities in the world is strained by transportation problem. BBC News informed that only 2% of Jakarta citizen use public transport while the other use private car. Car users are growing at a rate of 10% a year, so unless something is done, analyst said that the city will become completely gridlocked in a few years. We can’t blame the citizen for choosing to use their own car instead of using the public transport, sometimes they’re forced to that option because Jakarta still hasn’t had an adequate public transportation system. That is why this problem urge me to take this program.
Having research in this field will give me a vision about transportation system that can be implemented in urban area. Furthermore I see Japan already had a good transportation system and also one of the best country in developing new transportation mode. By comparing the urban transport management between my country and Japan, I hope I can have valuable benchmark so that it can be implemented in my country to solve the transportation problems.
I would be very excited to join the incoming class at the XXXX, XXXX. I hope you will seriously consider me as a student in your program, my strong motivation and career plan are a good match for what this program has to offer. I sincerely believe I would make an excellent student in your program, and I am prepared to work and study hard in order to meet the high standards that XXXX is known for. Thank you for your consideration.
