Update 1: It’s sad to see so many comments with negative perspective which “completely disregard” the role of India played to mold those top Indians.
So here is a little stat:
- Satya Nadella– B.E Electrical Engineering from Manipal Institute of Technology
- Indra Nooyi– PGDM (/MBA) from IIM Calcutta
- Shantanu Narayen– B.Sc Electronics Engineering from Osmania University
- Ajit Jain– B.Tech Mechanical Engineering from IIT Kharagpur
- Ajay Banga– PGDM (/MBA) from IIM Ahmedabad
- Surya Mohapatra– B.S in Sambalpur University
- Sundar Pichai– B.Tech Metallurgical Engineering from IIT Kharagpur
- Balaji Viswanathan– B.E Computer Engineering from Thiagarajar College of Engineering
Indian Schools were the ones to provide the “basic” for those geniuses which created the roots for the tree to grow.
Heading and running those top dominating companies of the world is an achievement in itself.
The USA trusts the intellectualism of the Indians to “lead” their own companies.
Most of the comments also argue that Indians have reached that great height owing “simply” to their education in America. I would like to ask you a simple question:
Can a person with a weak base get into colleges like Yale School of Management, University of California-Berkeley, Harvard Business School, University of Pennsylvania, Babson College?
