If you're looking to raise one of the most powerful business leaders in the world, you might want to send your kid to Hyderabad Public School, Begumpet, in India.

In an interview with Stephen Dubner on an episode of the Freakonomics podcast, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella mentioned that not only did he attend HPS — so did Shantanu Narayen, the CEO of Adobe, and Ajay Banga, the CEO of Mastercard.

HPS is what Americans would consider to be a private school — although in India, like England, the schools Americans would call "private" are called public schools. According to the school's website, it was established in 1923 and was originally a school for the sons of aristocrats, modeled after Eton College in London. In 2017, it was ranked one of the top 10 schools in India.
