Dear Visa Officer,
My F-1 visa application was rejected on June 26, 2002. The Visa Officer told
me that my major is “management”, so I do not need to pursue a Ph.D. degree.
I believe that the rejection was due to misunderstanding of my major.
1. What is Management Science? Why I need a Ph.D.?
Management Science also can be called Operations Research. It is to solve
management problems and optimize operations by scientific methods such as
mathematics, statistics and computer science. It is to help the manager to make
scientific decision by quantitative methods.
My career plan is to become a TOP ONE professor in this area in China.
Management Science originates in US. A US Ph.D. degree is an important credential
to realize my dream. The University of Texas at Austin’s Management Science
has been ranking top 3 in the States for many years. Such a degree can
provide me with the most advanced theory, rigorous academic training and
modern research methodology.
2. Why I will come back?
After graduation, I will come back to my School of Economics & Management to
be a professor in Tsinghua University. My reasons to come back are:
1) Several leading Chinese business schools already can provide me with a
decent position and high salary, generally with a starting salary about 20,000
RMB per month for associate professor. That’s nearly USD 40,000 a year after
bonus. Besides, I can get quicker promotions in China.
2) It will be a right time to come back to China when I graduate in 2006.
According to the government’s reports, Chinese universities will admit 15,000
MBA from a 60,000-applicant’s pool this year and accept 3,000 more each year
later. That is to say, in 2006 the number will climb up to 27,000 from
a pool of 135,000. So to be a professor in Chinese business school will be
very promising. I’d like to train domestic MBA to help develop China economy
more effective and robust by using scientific management methods. I won't
be silly to give up such opportunities.
3) Unlike other major, Management Science is not only pure theory. As a
business major, the culture background is crucial to perform research in this
arena. China is the best place to develop my career as a professor in business.
I have studied here, worked here and lived here for so many years. I
can easily understand the operations of Chinese corporations. Because of the
language and culture gap, it will be very hard to get a proper academic
position in American business schools. There is little room for me to develop
my career in the States.
I sincerely hope that you will reconsider my situation and grant the F-1 visa
for me to attend the University of Texas at Austin. Your favorable consideration
will be highly appreciated.
With best regards!
