“Our students have a unique edge when it comes to competing for global jobs. Having lived and studied in three of the world’s top business cities, they have first-hand knowledge of how to operate and succeed in a global business environment. They know how to work in global teams; they are globally minded and emotionally intelligent and these skills have continued to reap rewards in the form of better jobs and salaries long after they graduate. Our many rankings by the world’s top international publications are testimony to this,” shares Dr. Grandhi.
