Products of India’s Education

[via Atanu] Bloomberg writes:

As Gupta’s rise illustrates, PepsiCo Inc., which last week named Indra Nooyi as its next CEO, isn’t the first global corporation to recognize the caliber of Indian executive talent. The annual reports of many large companies show Indians are landing big jobs. Like Gupta and Nooyi, most are products of an investment in higher education the country made more than 40 years ago.

“There is a huge demand for Indian executives,” says Rana Talwar, 58, former CEO of Standard Chartered Plc in London who runs Sabre Capital, a buyout firm. “The quality of the education is very good. And Indians can adapt to any environment. When we grew up, we got used to adverse conditions such as power outages.”
