arunkumar narasimhamurthy vure: I am commerce post graduate and 10yrs exp in core finances that anything opt for me in management studies

NNS Chandra: What kind of core finances you have been on with, Arun Kumar?

Is that in accounting? Practising account management?

If you are good with accounting I would encourage you to consider to look at PMO companies and their accounting practice.

Check out with PMI. It is growing field and lot organisations are moving in PMO model. E-mail me.


Mounika Mahatha: I am an orphan. I follow your blog and I am an avid reader of your articles. I admire you.

Just wanted to know what's my best choice or what's my next step so I can get a good job as I have done BCom and hence I am a graduate so should I go for CAT or GMAT?

NNS Chandra: Hi Mounika, Thanks for following my writings and appreciate your interest in my blogs.


Mounika Mahatha: I am in dilemma. Because these exams must be having eligibility criteria and I am probably not good for that? Please do reply. I need your counselling.

NNS Chandra: I answered your questions in first part of your query.

I would be glad to provide support to you what ever manner. Please do not hesitate to call or e-mail my office or to me directly.


PRACHI SHARMA: hello sir, I'm Vaibhav. I have passed my 12th and I want to know the procedure of getting admissions in Canada.

Also what eligibility criteria should a student fulfill to appear in MCAT.

NNS Chandra: I did not understand your question, Prachi/Vibhava- MCAT is a test for North American Medical Schools. And for a 12th grader it doesn't apply.

Can you please explain what you meant? You can e-mail me directly. I would be glad to help.


lakshmi jayaram: Sir how would you rate University of Colorado Boulder for embedded systems for MS

NNS Chandra: Hi Lakshmi, I had an american student of mine took their certificate program (Embedded systems program in Colorado) and had a good experience and landed up with a pretty good offer.

I have understood their Grad programme is solid but do not have direct experience.

Are you accepted in Boulder? It is a beautiful campus and great learning environment. Congrats.
