It's common knowledge what some of the most prestigious universities are, especially ones that CEOs of large, successful ventures attended - but this one in particular is known for the upbringing of the CEOs of Microsoft, Adobe, and Mastercard.
We know which universities have trained more future billionaires - many of whom are big entrepreneurs in the technology sector - but did their success really start at university?
Scientists and psychologists maintain that the experiences we experience during our childhood have a significant influence on our future personal and professional success and, obviously, the training we receive at school is a great factor.
In the case of Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, there is no doubt that her successful career started at school. Nadella studied secondary education at the Hyderabad Public School, Begumpet, a school in India where Shantanu Narayen, the CEO of Adobe, and Ajay Banga, the CEO of Mastercard, were also formed.
The school, located in Hyderabad, was founded in 1923 for the children of aristocrats. Almost a century later it has been rated as one of the 10 best schools in India, and the city where it is located has become a technological hub.
It is a private center, since in India a "public school" is created historically for the elite and with wealth, while "state schools" are what we know here as public schools, and they are free.
Hyderabad Public School, Begumpet maintains that the most important values that instill to the students are the "tolerance and respect for the rest" and a "strong self-esteem". They prepare students to be physically and mentally prepared to be alert and face the challenges they will encounter throughout their lives.
Nadella not only talks about what she learned in the classroom, a lot of her memories are on the cricket ground. Practicing this sport he learned some of his most valuable lessons, including his ability to trust in himself and continue to learn constantly.
