I have known Mr Shahani in the capacity of his lecturer on a second year accounting module for a year. Over that period of time I have always found him to be an intelligent, conscientious and personable young man. He is also motivated and quick on the trigger when it comes to answering questions. In my conversations with him I have noticed that he has good quantitative skills, an analytical bent of mind and good communication skills in English, both written and oral.I see no reason why Mr Shahani should not be able to cope with the demands of postgraduate study and on this basis I have no hesitation in recommending him to you.

Dr. Inmaculada Adarves-Yorno
