An all-round approach is what matters for the global powerhouse in education, Manipal Education. And that is the reason Indian Test cricket captain, Anil Kumble, was signed as their brand ambassador.

"Anil Kumble was the right choice as ambassador, as his personality mirrored the brand values of the institution. For the last six decades, we have been offering education to young minds and helping them mould themselves into responsible leaders of tomorrow. We have emerged as a leading light in the arena of higher education for students not only from India but from 51 other countries as well,'' said Anand Sudarshan, MD and CEO, Manipal Education.

Speaking on the endorsement, Test captain Kumble said: "I have followed Manipal Education's success in developing all-rounded students, who have emerged as winners in their respective streams. It gives me great pleasure to represent Manipal Education globally and lead young minds to new vistas of learning.''

Manipal Education has two universities (Manipal and Sikkim Manipal University), over 30 institutions in India, besides colleges and university campuses in Antigua, Dubai, Malaysia and Nepal. There are over 1,25,000 students currently pursuing under-graduate, graduate and doctoral programmes.
