Wharton University sets sights on India
Bangalore: Wharton University of Pennsylvania, one of the world's leading business schools, plans to set its base in India. The business school is also planning partnerships with premier Indian institutions.

Established in 1881 through a donation of Joseph Wharton, the school currently has 278 faculty members. According to Forbes, approximately 90 percent of billionaires with MBAs obtained their master's degree from one of three Ivy League schools that includes Harvard Business School, Columbia Business School, and Wharton.

According to Anjani Jain, Vice Dean and Director of Wharton University, the need for education in India and the country's economic growth are the two main factors that warrant thousands of universities to be added to India's educational infrastructure. "Setting up a base in India cannot be ruled out going forward", said Jain to Kritika Saxena of CNBC-TV18.
