“I happen to be the person in-charge of NSHM College of Management & Technology (NCMT). A decade back the journey of NCMT began under my supervision. It is the largest among all NSHM institutions with more than 1600 students and 60 odd teachers. Earlier, I was involved as a scientist in CSIR, Min. of S&T, GoI from 1991 till 1998, where I was involved with the research and development of informatics. I had also served in steel industry and thereafter had a foray as a development worker prior to my joining NSHM in the year 2002. I am also involved in authoring and conducting effective educational programs for schools, higher-educational institutions and for professionals using the thinking and creativity skills of Dr Edward de Bono -- the inventor of lateral thinking. I was accorded the title of Master Educator by de Bono. Our team NCMT is a great team that I always cherish. They are a set of brilliant people with laurels and distinctions which are far more superior to mine, to say the least. Our goal is to make NCMT the numero uno institution in effective teaching in Asia” - Krishnendu Sarkar
