“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 have a global mindset and are emotionally intelligent, and their skills have continued to reap rewards in the form of better jobs and salaries long after they graduate,” said Grandhi.
