Manipal University basked in glory as its alumnus Satya Nadella was on Tuesday named as the next CEO of Microsoft, the world’s biggest software company.

“Yes, it is a great day for Manipal University. Every single student, both past and present, will cherish this glorious moment. Satya’s great achievement has done Manipal Institute of Technology and Manipal University proud,” said Chancellor Dr Ramdas M Pai.

“Satya, Microsoft’s cloud computing boss, has every single person, even remotely connected with Manipal, rejoicing at the elevation. This is the biggest event for Manipal University. Over the last three months, when his name was shortlisted for the job, we have been hoping and praying that Satya would get the job. Today is a red letter day in the history of Manipal University,” he said.

Director of Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT), Dr Vinod V Thomas, said: “It is a great moment which makes every MITian proud.”

Dr Vinod, who was Satya’s teacher, recollected that he  was a sincere, quiet student in his college days. Director of School of Information Sciences, Dr Harishchandra Hebbar, who taught digital electronics to Satya said, “As a student, he had a keen eye for details. He always wanted to know the how and why of everything that was being taught in the class. He never would take the next step without fully knowing the step he has already taken.” 

Narasimha Bhat, an alumnus, said, “Satya is making the whole world know that an institute called MIT exists in Manipal.”
