MS Computer Information Systems

I see XXXX University Online Master of Science Program in Computer Information Systems as the perfect bridge from where I am professionally to where I want to go. I am attracted by the inventiveness and uniqueness of its Information Security and Database Management program since this area is my passion. As a banker, I am deeply immersed in fighting the practice of money laundering and need to enhance my abilities in database management. My father devoted his life to fighting white color crime with the New York State XXXX and I am proud to follow in his footsteps fighting money laundering and online banking fraud.

I am currently employed with XXXX Bank as an Assistant Vice President of Quality Control where my primary responsibilities include the development and maintenance of Quality Control"s (CATSWeb) Tracking Database, assessing other areas of the banking system, and evaluating the effectiveness of compliance risk controls. I spearhead systemic projects that provide innovative solutions for inefficiencies found during compliance testing and review. I recently completed a professional anti money laundering specialist certificate program (ACAMS) and I enjoy being given the latitude to make the ways that we do business safer, as well as creating successful partnerships between vendors and financial institutions. Last year, I was asked to spearhead a project with several service providers in the identification and implementation of a software system that would improve the operational efficiency and reporting capabilities of my department. I developed a rigorous software comparison matrix which expanded the vendor selection process beyond the initial scope presented by the team, to discover gaps, unique features, or other opportunities for functionality, exceeding their stated objectives. The system that I recommended was adopted and is now being used globally throughout the organization. I put into place an all-in-one technological solution for collecting, organizing, analyzing and sharing information to improve the quality of overall compliance team performance.

Studying in your program can help prepare me to help to better integrate compliance efforts into various business activities. I am interested in pursuing course work that examines the fundamental principles of software design engineering in light of ongoing state-of-the-art, quality advancement, especially with respect to requirement specifications. Your online program at XXXX University will provide me with the kind of comprehensive education and research experience that I need to refine my ability to fight money laundering and apply sound business principles to Internet applications. I hope to thereby overcome some of the challenges that are posed by today's regulatory environment and find new ways to turn compliance efforts into capital opportunities. I am an intuitive and imaginative problem solver with a solid foundation in analytical processes, teamwork, and problem-solving skills. I believe that my work experience has afforded me with a sound basis for further study of key elements involved in the effective use of compliance systems.

While ABN AMRO provides expansive career opportunities in Compliance, I feel that I have reached a plateau in developing the analytical and management skills necessary to achieve my full career potential for mitigating compliance risks and proposing increasingly creative corrective measures. I feel like I still lack an adequate foundation in systemic knowledge of IT. Internet Systems Development and Administration is now the central part of my job description and your program can prepare me to excel further in terms of my professional achievements. I believe that a business school for career professionals should balance theory with real-world applications and I am pleased that XXXX's curriculum includes hands-on experience through online association and collaboration. I am drawn to XXXX University because of the school's recognition of the central importance of Database Design and Implementation for Business, Information Systems Analysis and Design, IT Strategy and Management, and Electronic Commerce Systems on the Web. I am applying to XXXX University because it has the best, flexible MSCIS program online, and one which will allow me to tailor my course of study directly to my career interests. I also look forward to contributing to the school's strong international alumni network.
