    Management Case Study (CSEP Pathway) – Feb 2021

  • After completing my Master’s degree joined with Nanska Institute for OCS classes as the very first step of my CIMA journey. It was an amazing experience for me to see how the lecturers of Nanska helped the students to go through the exams successfully by adhering to various online platforms like online classes, mock exams and via Nanska website enriched with high quality study materials. I shall be very much thankful to the lecturers of Nanska Institute, especially to Mr. Channa Gunawardana & Mr. Mark Gunathilaka for their painstaking effort to improve the knowledge & for the motivation extended throughout. It is due to their invaluable effort I was able to attain the goal while being a full time banker. This endeavour is highly appreciated.

    Operational Case Study – Feb 2021

  • Studying through an online platform was a first time experience for me, NANASKA’s teaching methodology and the resources they provide to get me thinking in the right direction were the key attributes that contributed to my success. Coming into the CIMA program from the C-SEP route I had to learn the basics as well whilst preparing for the Case Study, Channa’s TEAM managed to make this a simpler task than I expected. Some of the facilities that I found interesting and value adding were the personal attention, any time any place video availability, and the online mocks."
