Date: 31th May, 2015
ABC Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
Please accept my resignation from the post of Finance Executive with ABC Corporation Pvt. Ltd. with effect from 1 June, 2015. The reason due to which I am leaving the company is that I am pursuing higher studies at California Management College.
As you know that I am only a graduate in Finance from New York University and I have been looking forward for a good opportunity to have further education in the same field since long. I am really happy that I have been shortlisted for the course and I will be joining the class of 2016 at California Management College for 2 years Masters in Business Administration program. I am sure that once I have completed this program I will be able to resume my career with a much stronger academic background. I am really sorry because I will not be able to serve the notice period because I had received the confirmation letter from the University two days back.
California Management College requires all the MBA students to go for a preparatory course in financial accounting. To pursue that course, I will soon be leaving for California to prepare myself in this subject, so I will be leaving Australia this month itself in readiness for this.
I am quite sure that Company will have no problems regarding the audit reports. I will hand over all the important documents and files to Mr. Jacob Smith, who works in Accounts department. He will be handling the current files. In case, you need any help in preparing the current audit reports then you can always call me or email me.
I would like to thank the organization and my colleagues for their support and guidance. It has been a wonderful learning experience. I am also thankful to the management for their understanding. Please inform me about all the formalities related with the resignation procedure.
Thanking in anticipation
