(Click on the topic to read the instructions for this section.)

Here is an example of a mission statement:

My academic mission is to successfully complete a bachelor’s degree in business administration by June 2020. I hope to use the entrepreneurial and management skills developed in my degree to open my own business in the online retail market. Through my business, I hope to provide goods and services to the public while maintaining a profitable living so that I can spend more time with my family and support my children’s future education.

The What Are SMART Goals website is a resource you can reference for more information about writing a measurable goal. Your goals should be written as full sentences, and they must include evidence that they can be measured, a proposed date for completion, and a description of how the goals relate to your mission statement.

Here is an example of a strong SMART goal:

My goal is to submit all work on time or before the due date for my first two terms by meeting with my advisor weekly and mapping out the assignments and deadlines for all my classwork. I will know I have succeeded in achieving my goal by submitting all my work on time or early. This relates to my mission statement because I must successfully complete my assignments in order to pass my classes and obtain my degree. 

Here is an example of a weak goal:

I will submit my work on time.
