?In the spirit of continually improving and helping one another I would like to make a proposal. In Exchange for full education reimbursement for my MBA, valued at $30,000, I would commit to 6 years of service to the company. I will honor the current tuition assistance criteria including all contingencies. ?There are countless benefits to the company, during the near term I will provide the following. While attending school I will still be working full time allowing me to bring up to date business school information directly back to the company. Thus allowing for personal growth, company growth, and to have a greater ability to motivate, lead, and manage my staff. The knowledge and skills I acquire from the faculty and other business practitioners can inspire innovation, change, and be passed on to my fellow colleagues, allowing everyone to reap the benefits from this investment. Not only will I learn strategic thinking skills and critical analysis but also gain a more holistic view and understanding of our business. I will be well prepared to handle new situations as they arise. As the sous chef I see the big picture when it comes to managing a cruise, having this education will allow me to achieve a clearer view from the director’s perspective of managing a business. The next 2 yearswill be my learning phase. During this time I will be learning the ins and outs of how a business operates from the core to the outer shell. These are just some of the short term benefits. ?The long term benefits would come to play at the corporate level. From a financial aspect, think of the long term cost savings. You won’t have to waste valuable time, money, and resources training someone from the ground up. You will have someone that already has the knowledge and understanding of how our business operates. I will be able to provide a fresh business perspective on situations that arise at the corporate level. This is a unique opportunity for you to train and groom aprospective future leader of this company. When hiring directors and positions above that you want someone that will live and breathe our shared values along with producing results and effecting change that will be beneficial to the company so why not give me the opportunity to do just that. We have to invest today into tomorrow’s leaders.
