Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: You could also look at this story.
Chandra: For someone interested in automobile engineering , what are the academic options and what are career prospects in India?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: chandra, the academic options are limited since colleges offering automobile engineering are relatively less. But with about five automobile maufacturing clusters coming up in a big way in the country, the profession would find many takers .yes you can. Just ensure that the institute you want to pursue D Pharm is approved by the pharmacy council
Vishnu Gupta: hello sir, i want to know that i can do d.pharm. with B.A.(praivet). can i do two regular course together as pollytechnic or D.pharm. with B.A.
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Vishnu two regular courses are theoritically not possible. so Regulations do not permit them. the problem would arise only when you apply for a Govt. job
Vikrant: which is best for cat coaching ?? career launcher or BYJU of noida
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Vikrant it is impossible to tell, becacuse the local centre's teachers would make all the difference. So you will have to go personally and check who teaches there
Vikrant: at how much %ile we can get IIMs????? and other ques. is my english is verypoor, so what i should do to make it good . and from where i can increase my vocab?????? what criteria should i look for selecting the coaching centres for cat?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: IIMs generally have very high cut offs. IIM A for example has a cut off of 99.6 while as an IIM kashipur would consider you even at 85 percentile. English language competence can be developed with a little effort. Read good news papers like The Hindu aloud. Listen to the training tapes made by the British council. And use every opportunity to converse in english.
Vikrant: suggest me some magazines useful for cat preparation and those who gives gud info abt mba
Vikrant: how many IIMs are there currently?????
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: 13 of them. aany competition magazine would give you questions on quants, DI and verbal. The point is to get the principles and short cuts rigtht. this is where a good teacher would help immensely.
Vikrant: from where can i get training tapes made by the British council???
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: if you are in delhi visit the british council. they do lend tapes from the library. Also look for MAD Make difference centres in your locality they sell cambridge english training course
Vikrant: ok , thnks for ur help
Vikrant: MAD , what is this , i m from greater noida

Ak: hi...i wanted to know about career options which are easy,less math and science intensive and are good career in the recent and future times..plz hepl me ....i m really confused
Careers360 answers: Dear ak, for a better response please share what you have studied till now.
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: ak the best career with your specs is sales. All you need is a pleasant personality and good communication skills and it is an evergreen career.
Ak: what about hotel management?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: it is equally good. but is backbreaking work especially if your are in kitchen or front office. But pays well as you move up in your career and the bonus is the smile you get from the guests
Ak: would you suggest any other career option?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: BHU's pharmacy dept., KN Modi, Babu Banarasi Das are some of the known colleges in UP. However i must tell you none of these colleges came up in the Top 25 schools in the country ranked by Principals of Pharmacy colleges. AK suggesting a career option for an indiviudal is quite an onerous responsibility. What i could suggest is that you take a good personality assessment test and see what careers and vocations are suited to your intelllect and temperament.
Careers360 answers: hey ak, read our extensive career review on hotel management: http://www.careers360.com/news/7614-after-10-2-hotel-management

Ashish Shanbhag: Yes Sir
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Ashish, it actually depends on the profile you get. if you get a customer interface profile in retail banking, you would be better off being a finance guy in a company. So look at the profile first and then decide
Mohit Kumar: how can I apply for technical posts at NTRO? I'm a CSE graduate.
Mohit Kumar: NTRO is National Technical Research Organization.
Mohit Kumar: I'm an engineer. How can I become a broker or a sub-broker?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: mohit you need to register with SBEI. there is a fee involved as well. NMIMS offers a full time programme on Stock markets. UTI institute of capital markets is also another good place to study
Nimi: sir which is the best option after btech.MBA or M.TECH
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Nimi that is a function of what is interest to you? I mean what is of interest to you

Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: anup it is quite difficult to get into a good US school without an impressive academic record. some schools do value exceptional acheivement like setting up your own company/ working on a large social project. anup you must be able to show some spark in one area of life if not in academics
NABARAJ NANDI: Sir,I want to know the cut-off marks for admission to M-Tech in IITs, specially in IIT Madras. No IIT other than IIT BOMBAY had stated there cut-offs..please let me know

Ketan: I'm doing B.E. in I.T. I want to switch my field from IT to Environment Engineering or environment related subject. Which is the best PG course for this.
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers:Ketan that depends on what is is that you want to do at masters level. you want to do hardcore science or a techno managerial course
Ketan: Sir, hardcore science.
Ketan: Which option will be good according to you, M.Tech in Environmental engg. or MBA from IIFM?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: that is quite a shift Ketan. They you must ideally look at good US universities who are not very stuck up on you having a first degree in the same subject. Ketan they are two distinct programmes. Which option you think you would enjoy doing
Ketan: Ok sir. Out of these two option I would choose M.tech as it will teach core things related to environment.
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: ketan NIT trichy, and two fo the five IITs have environmental engineering programme
Ketan: But sir am I eligible for it?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: ketan i am not sure if they demand specific branches in engineering as eligibility you will have to check
Ketan: Most of the college want Civil engg as b.tech degree and i'm pursiung in I.T.
Ketan: and sir whats your take on IIFM??
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: i think letmeknow is good site. east chance too is a good bet but for foreign internships. yes we are working on a microsite. will launch it in the coming months. ketan, it is an legacy player. so its credentials are valued
Ketan: Sir one last question. IIT vs IIFM. I'm in huge dilemma. Of these two which is the best player.
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: ketan which IIT
Ketan: any IIT
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: that is a tough call. say between an IIT Mumbai and IFIM i would choose IIM Mumbai but let us say between IIT Manali and IIFM i would rather bet on IFIM. See it is a very individual specefic decision. It rests with you finally
Ketan: Thank you sir
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: my pleasure ketan
Ketan: Keeping in mind as I want to apply for IFS, IIFM would help as many faculties of IIFM are IFS officers
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: yes ketan it might
Rajeev: Dear sir, I want to know that how MS in management is different from MBA/PGDM in India. I came to know that few institutes like IIT-M offer MS in management but it is not very known. Could you please enlighten me regrading future scope of MS?

Ishika: Sir, I am considering a B.Tech in Aerospace Engineering from Nanyag Tech., Singapore. I have an excellent academic record so i know i will get the offer letter. But Sir, which bank/organisation should I approach for Education loan, with low interest rate?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Ishika, most banks offer you upto 20 lakhs with colletaral. Ideally you must go to a back which is near your hometown and where your parents have their base and assests
Akshay: Sir,when will be the almanac for b-schools be available on the book stands?How much would it cost?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Aksahy it is already there in the market. it costs 295
Akshay: Sir,Iam bcom graduate and sooner I will be starting my 3 year CA articleship,so which masters degree option is better with CA. Since I will be doing it in correspondence mode, also which is the better institute for that?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Akshay an M.Com would be a good bet. But some programmes like Business Finance corporate secretaryships are also good value adds for a CA aspirant. IGNOU has dated but good materials. annamalai is a old player here.Akshay look for a university whcih has an authorised study centre where you are located it helpsa lot
Rahul gulati: Iwhich is better ISB or EDI- in terms of teaching methodology and global teaching practices
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Rahul without doubt ISB. Its exposure levels are quite different. but cost would also be exceptionally high
Rahul gulati: is EDI good choice to study entrpreneurship
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: yes rahul it is great place. you will get quality education
Rahul gulati: I know this is a silly question, do they-EDI offer placements to students who wish to take enterprise exposure before launching their own company
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: rahul i think they do have a tie up with some bank where you become eligibile for a startup loan up to 1 crore with out colletaral but obviously the numbers would be limited
Rahul gulati: I was going through the site of Bi Norweigan business school. They offer a masters in innovation and entpreneurship. What do you think about the college and course
Rahul gulati: the price is abysmally low 10000 euros for two years
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: it is the flavour of the month programme. lots of univ's are offering it. SPRU surrey, eindoven netherlands, copenhegan denmark and to some extend oslo norway are old players in this domain. i am not aware of BI so wont comment on their offering
Rahul gulati: Is norway a good option to explore MBA considering scandinavian booming ecomony
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: yes provided you could withstand the freezing cold and on darkness for three months. it is a great city though
Rahul gulati: Norweigan business school is the top b school in that area also can you suggest some mba schhols who teach business entrepreneurship non us only? If between Scotland and Norway to choose for MBA in entrpreneurship which one you suggest and why?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: rahul there is no straight answer. i personally wld choose scotland because i dont like norway's weather. but that may not be your reason. the ideal way to look at is institute's relative reputation, presnce of great faculty in the specialistiaon. you want to pursue, costs and finally living conditions.if you do a relative map of schools in both countries you will get your answer and of course placements & standing in the international league tables
Rahul gulati: If a college is not In Financial times/Forbes/ecomoist list tables. des it mean it has lesser value
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: sort off. you see an MBA is a peception game and a circular one at that. better means better placements and better placments mean better rank. so it does matter. but if you are not into placements but only knowledge then the deal is different
Rahul gulati: any suggestions on indian universities teaching environmental management. Im atech iter can this course help mewr
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: rahul repeat the question it is jumbled

Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Varun IITs/IISc both are best for VLSI programmes. If my memory is right, Amirta, SRM and Thapar also offer PG programmes in this domain

Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: financial services, consulting are all suitable for you. But you need to look for them. gaurav CDS is not a very difficult exam to crack. Buy a good Mcgraw-Hill or Pearson guide book. But the tougher challenge is the interview and their tests. So read newspapers regularly, participate in debates, build your ability to communicate well and of course be prepared to meet the gruelling physical standards

Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Dear Anurag this is a brand new school which has come up recently. Worth a try
Anurag Singh: then it means i can go for it
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Anurag, the only issue you must keep in mind is that, they offer MBA degrees which are basically correspondence.
Vivek: Im doing BCA from IGNOU. I want to do MBA in US from prestigious college [HSB]. Im also preparing for GMAT and TOEFL. will they accept a degree of IGNOU, as im doing BCA from Distance Education.. PLZ HELP ME?????
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: hello vivek the degree of course is valid. but US demands 16 years of formal education. So you will have to atleast do one more year in a master's programme
Vivek Khatod: sir,as u said that us demand 16 yar of education if i pursue a master degree can i go to us then..
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Vivek US as for my knowledge goes does not have MCA they do have a MS programme
Vivek Khatod: sir plz tell me can i do mca in US..
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Vivek usually this is not possible. Universities especially at the master's level do expect you to have certain knowledge of the domain.
Vivek Khatod: sir ima commerce student and pursuing BCA can i do MS in Computer Science in US PLZ SUGGEST??
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: And this can only be proven by a degree or substantial work experience
Nishant pandya: Hi sir i want to know about scada system. Is that is useful for electrical engineering student.
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Nishant of course it is very useful for an engineering student. But the only trouble is that you can only learn it in real life. So may be when you do an intership look for a large process factory say pharma, chemical or petro.
Kumud Lalani: hi sir i am a b.com graduate bt i did nt pass with gr8 marks . i am also pursuing company secratary and giving executive this june and also looking for a job .Please suggest any course and pg course that can enhance my profile.
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Dear Kumud, CS itself is a very good course. A programme business laws like MBL offered by National Law school would be a good value addition
Kumud Lalani: But even if i am thouroughly interested in pursuing mlb bt because of my low grads score i am not being able to apply in any good law schools
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Kumud that definitely is a problem. Grades do matter especially when you apply to good schools. the only way to mitigate this is to go for a masters programme and earn better grades
Kumud Lalani: sir,could you suggest any college i could apply for
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers:kumud off hand i can not suggest any. college selection is a very fine art where in you match your cut offs, interest, paying capability and institutute reputation and then freeze some of them
Kumud Lalani: is there any other way i can look forward to law,particularly corporate law.
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: there is a BCL programme offered by Annamalai University. That could be an entry pointannamalai univers
Kumud Lalani: sir, will wotking in law firm or under a company secretary help me increasing my knowledge in corporate law
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: kumud yes it would. especially if the law firm works with business.
Kumud Lalani: i stay in kolkata, and everyone keeps telling me that there is no fututre for company secretaries in kolkata, please tell me which firms should i headhunt for
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Kumud by law any company witha paid up share capital of Rs.200 lakhs needs to have a full time company secretary. so you will have to keep looking.
Kumud Lalani: thak u sir
AR-un: Sir, I'm a CA (23 yrs, 8 months work ex) who did his B.Com through correspondence. Is there any way I can do higher studies in the US?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: yes. you need to enroll for a masters programme complete one year of the same and then you can appy to US
AR-un: Masters programme in India like M.Com?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Arun yes. any masters programme connected with commerce like MCom
AR-un: I thought of doin MBA abroad (some of the lesser known colleges coz I cant afford the bigger ones)...what I want to know is if I have a chance of getting in? I'm pretty sure of a high GMAT score, but not sure if my lack of college education will hamper it
AR-un: Plus my extra-curricular & others are not good...my work-ex is with a good company but just 8 months in at the moment
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Arun it is very unlikely that an accredited college will waive off the 16th year requirement. if you score well on GMAT what they might do is to give you a bridge course and then take you on for the MBA.
AR-un: what about other countries like Canada, sir?? Any country with less stringent requirements on college education??
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Arun most of europe is not very strict.
canada i am not sure. will have to verify
AR-un: Sweden is affordable, for sure. They have quite a few scholarships & aids. But I'm also worried about the value that an MBA at a lesser-known university gives.
AR-un: With the top jobs in the finance field almost exclusively reserved for MBAs, I'm a little bit desperate to do one...
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: arun it is a tough call. if you consult a good foreign education councellor with a detailed resume and a GMAT score in your hand, shortlisting would then become easy and apt. i would suggest go ahead and give the GMAT. that would give you an idea where you stand and then you can tailor your aspirations accordingly
AR-un: Can u suggest some counsellors sir? I'm not really sure who to trust...many just seem on convincing u to do the course they want.
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: arun i would suggest even before looking for a councelor do your GMAT. The score would give you lot of clarity.
AR-un: Shall i wait till I get more work-ex to give GMAT sir? Right now, I'm 8 months into Ernst & Young...Will something like a 2yr work-ex increase my chances of getting a better school?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: arun of course it would. more over two years would also give you some surplus funds since applying to foreign univs would set you back by about 50-60K
AR-un: Thank u sir, bye
Aditya Nayak: hello sir......how are you doing? Its me aditya again.......my brother gave the test you mention last time.........it suggested for technical and teaching as career options
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: then depending on the score you could do shortlist of countries and institutions. which then would lead you to the right councellor
Aditya Nayak: he has asked if he should take up bsc itim from jetking infotech under smu......will it be a good idea as he is an commerce student
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: aditya is he right now in 10+2
Aditya Nayak: yes he gave this exams already
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: aditya ideally you must by now have a certain idea where he would stand. if he expects a score about say 90% then this is not an ideal option. jetking is a hardware training company fundamentally. now this sector does have good job opportunities. But it is considered blue collar work. if that is not an issue the domain is intersting. i have no knowledge of facilities in the jet king centre you are talking about. you will have to make an assessment there
Aditya Nayak: thank u sir have a great day ahead
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: sorry friends it is time for me to log out. will be back again on wednesday same time. until then bye

Aditya Nayak: hello i have completed bsc itim from Kuvempu University ,but i have taken lateral entry to 4th sem. based on some cources of rooman technology banglore, i want to know if i am eligible for mba,?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: hi aditya as long as you get a degree from Kuvempu University you are eligible for higher studies
Aditya Nayak: which spe. should i take in mba? which specialization should i take and followed by which b-school for the same?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: aditya specialisation choices are a function of what excites you as an individual. and institutes are a function of what score you get in the entrance exams.
Aditya Nayak: sir i had one more thing to ask its about my brother he has completed +2 commerce and is willing to take up cwa/ca/cs. But the issue is he is not well to do with maths but has keen over English. Which one should he be perfect?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: aditya ask him to take one of the many aptitude tests availble on the web. it would give him and your family an understanding of where he stands. commerce is does not demand high level maths, but lots of practise.
Aditya Nayak: could you suggest some good and reliable aptitude test sir?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: aditya yes. Meyers-Briggs is an interesting test you could look at
Aditya Nayak: i have an job offer with me as in technical support executive with one of the MNC BPO should i take it and then take admissions into distance mba or should go forward with mba regular
Aditya Nayak: i have around 2 years of experience as an technical trainer which i took during my bsc itim degree
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Aditya, this is again a tough choice. it depends on where you stand academically and financially. Yes, a job would give you money and may be you could grow in the profession. I would say give it two years, see how grow. In the mean time prepare for MBA entrance and see how you perform. if are in the top percentile go for a full time programme. If the score is quite on the lower side you would be better of working your way up and earning a degree alongside in distance learning mode
Aditya Nayak: thank you sir.............have a great day............i am looking forward to send some article to you
Yuvraj: Is MCA degree from Sikkim Manipal University is valid for Government jobs?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: yuvaraj yes it is valid.
Yuvraj: There was a news that J&k Goverment jobs are not open for the Distance Education Degrees. Kindly throw some light on this.
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Yuvraj. J&K owing to is special status( Article 370) can have norms whcih are different from rest of India. If you can send me the notification i will reserach and respond to you
Yuvraj: Sir, this is the link to the news. www.merinews.com/.
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Thank you Yuvaraj. I will have to reserach on this because J&K does enjoy special status thanks to Article 370. One has to see if some one has challenged the decision in the court of law. We will take this up. I can only respond after that
Yuvraj: My pleasure Sir. I am pursuing MCA degree through distance mode from Sikkim Manipal University and I also have 3.5 years of worl experience and still working. I wanted to switch to Goverment Jobs like teaching. But on reading this article I got confused that like J&K maybe other states as well will not accept distance education degrees that too from a private one.
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: no dont worry. all other states have to consider the degrees. they are bound by law to do so. The only issue is the see if the programme your are studying is approved by DEC. You can check the same from www.dec.ac.in
Yuvraj: I guess MCA from SMU DE is approved by the Joint committe DEC-AICTE-UGC.
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: yes it is
Yuvraj: Thank You very much sir for clearing my doubts. Have a great day.
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: thanks very much. See you again on friday. Until then good bye
Hari: Recently i haard that Gauhati University Introduce a new course MBA (industry Integrated) in Delhi.The institute told me that they award the degree of Gauhati University . What you think is this is a Valid programme? Should i take admission in this course.
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Hari. the extant law of the land is that a state university can not offer degrees beyond its jurisdiction. So the dgree you are getting in Delhi basically is a distance learning degree, what ever the name they call it.
Hari: Sir, Gauhati University also told that this Degree is regular you can check on the website (Link:http://www.gauhati.ac.in/business_administration/industryintegratedprogrammes.html).
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: This is a lie as on date hari. You can easily verify it by filing an TRI to DEC and to the University. I have filed a PIL against such a practise in the Hon' Delhi High Court. Until there is clarity this confusion would continue
Sorry I meant RTI
Hari: Thank you for your Guidance...
Grtvs: please give me some information about emax business school ambala

Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: That is quite a lot. You could easily find about 150 schools in Tier 1 level. I would suggest you look at a short list of about 10 schools. Say an IBS hyderabad( I am not sure if you can make it here with 85 percentile but give it a try, XIME, PESIT. Acharya, SSN is also a good bet. SCMS cochin is coming up well. but that is not your focus state
Sinddhura Chowdary: So other than IBS, there is no other college in Hyderabad?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: There are plenty. IPE is a good bet. St Joseph's PG college is coming up well.

Ideally look at colleges whose ranking is consistent accorss rankers as well as that which is on an upward swing
Sinddhura Chowdary: Which speclisation best suits for Computer science student in MBA????
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Sindura ideally you must go for a dual specialisation where in you could pick up IT as one and another functional area you are interested in.
Sinddhura Chowdary: Which speclisation having good future - as I’m interested in doing finance and marketing?
Mahesh, Editor, Careers360 answers: Sindhura, both are such evergreen disciplines, they will always have takers. The question you must ask is what excites you the most…
