The British High Commissioner to India, Sir Richard Stagg said:
“Prime Ministers David Cameron and Manmohan Singh have set out an ambitious vision for how the UK-India partnership should become ‘stronger, wider, deeper’. Chevening Gurukul scholars will play a critical role in this by making their mark, not just in the next few years but over the coming decades. The unique programme at the London School of Economics is tailored to equip high-flying Indian professionals in mid-career with new skills and perspectives so that they can spot, seize and shape opportunities in the complex and inter-connected world in which we all live.”
Essar is the corporate sponsor for the programme.
