While academic brilliance is a given at this level, we were looking for candidates who have gone beyond the norm in search of something interesting, have an appetite for the extraordinary and are looking to do something path breaking in their careers. We are lucky to have been able to onboard 60 such learners. They will now benefit from the diverse expertise of our exceptional Masters, all of whom are leaders in their respective fields and institutions by themselves.”
