Eminent Speakers on Manipal
Mr. Steve Ballmer, CEO, Microsoft Corporation

India’s  emergence  as  a  global  technology  centre is  the direct  result  of  its strong  education
system.  At Microsoft, we  have always believed  that  education  is the foundation for
opportunity and  success. One of our most important commitments is to help  deliver  high-
quality  educational materials  to  those    who    lack   access   to   teachers  and  resources.   
The  EduNxt   distance learning  platform  is a great  example  of  how  information  technology
can extend the reach of great  educational resources
. We  look  forward  to continuing to work
with Manipal Education to expand educational opportunities in India
NR Narayana Murthy, Chief Mentor, Infosys Technologies Ltd.

State  governments  should  concentrate  on  primary  education. They  need  not  be  burdened  
with  Higher  Education.  The  achievement  of  the  private  sector  in  Higher  Education is best
illustrated by
Manipal, which is the Harvard of India.
Azim H Premji, Chairman, Wipro Technologies Ltd.

When Dr.TMA Pai decided  to  build  a medical college in Manipal, it sounded like an impossible
dream. In the space of 50 years, Manipal was transformed into
an education capital, which is
proof enough of
a powerful vision.
Indira Gandhi, Former Prime Minister

"When  one  sees  such  tremendous  work, one often does not have the right word to express
happiness. I can only state that this is the work
of men of imagination, vision, enthusiasm and
which is the greatest need."
Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, Former President of India

"Manipal is like the Nalanda of Yore.  I  am  happy  to see engineering, medicine and other
disciplines being taught in the same campus,
an ideal environment for research to flourish."
