Chairman's Speak

The Chopras - Chairman Message

Mr Naveen Chopra, Chairman, The Chopras

Between my wife, Mrs. Natasha Chopra, the Managing Director of The Chopras, and I, we alone carry over 90 years of experience that we acquired while working hard and living overseas in countries like the U.S., the U.K., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, various parts of Europe and of course, India. When we add to that the experience of our wonderful staff, it is equivalent to over a couple of hundred years of knowledge. Who can match this first hand experience and knowledge that built and continues to build this company and its people?

When we shifted base from Sydney to set up the company that was branded as The Chopras in the market, the concept of career counselling was unknown in India. We introduced career planning to the country through intense conversations with a large number of school principals and through generic seminars on the importance as well as the fundamentals of career planning. This campaign led to the current situation, and many will acknowledge this, where most schools now have career-counselling cells. The rest is history.

The company continues to add value through in-depth, sensible, ethical and frank discussions with students about their career and further education plans within the global education frame that naturally includes India. Also of critical importance to us are the parents with whom we spend considerable time in addressing any concerns or issues that they may have regarding their child's future plans and career options.

We have a large, and ever-expanding, number of well-trained professionals that currently comprises over 650, many of whom are sent overseas as part of their training and continuing professional development. We have an expanding branch network that spans 17 cities in India, with sister companies in Nepal and Australia, that allows The Chopras to deliver virtually any aspect of a student's global education aspirations, including the managing of their applications, visa documentation, accommodation and settling-in process at all universities or educational institutions across the world.

Through the increasing footprint of the company in the sector of academic course delivery, we have metamorphosed into an end-to-end education company that significantly influences and sets trends in the global education space. In today's world, the issue is not where to get information; it is how to make sense of the very real information overload against a backdrop wherein everyone is selling themselves as being the best of the best for you.

Furthermore, this is a world that is changing so rapidly that jobs, indeed businesses, are vanishing faster than you can think, even as new opportunities are emerging. The question is, in such a world how many students and parents have that in-depth experience, breadth of knowledge and information, and a lateral thinking mind to grasp the zillion permutation-combinations that impact all our lives.

Even if you are absolutely clear about what you want to do with your life, what course you want to study and where, just avail our services and let The Chopras do it all for you leaving you completely free to focus on your studies or simply enjoy your free time. Why use up leisure or focused study time when you have your very own company and staff dedicated to serve you and to do it all for you?

Otherwise, if you are in a state of confusion, having multiple choices or some other kind of constraints and need to use the full scope of services backed up by unmatched experience, come on in and we will help sort it all out for you.

Either way, you will have the entire organisation including myself, my wife and the other senior staff and all their experience at your disposal. You can avail our help any time that you may need to tap into this vast pool of knowledge and passion to help you build your life.

We promise lifelong services to you that will continue long after you have left for your studies at a university or institution of your choice anywhere in the world. We are truly global in our outlook and experience and my job is to always look beyond the horizon for you.

Managing Director's Message

Message from The Managing Director

My experience of growing up and schooling in the UK, imparted education on how to cope with people of a different culture and in facing difficulties that arise from being "different". The lessons learnt there have stayed with me for life that fundamentally people world over are made of the same fabric and we need to be open minded, understand each other and to avoid prejudices.
