What has Microsoft, Nokia, Mastercard and Pepsi in common? The answer is that they are all run by people with degrees from Indian Universities. For instance, Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft and Rajeev Suri, CEO of Nokia have both degrees from Manipal Institute of Technology. Now Google is added to this crowd after Sundar Pichai with a degree from the Indian Institute of technology has been selected to become the new CEO of the company, (while the former CEO and co-founder Larry Paige is becoming the CEO of the new mother company Alphabet). This is obviously great PR for the Indian educational system. It can be seen as a boost for the culture of frugal innovation, innovation out of scarcity, which has its origins in India.
