Michael J Thomson, director, Mercedes-Benz International School, said that the diploma was introduced with six students from this academic year. This would be increased to 25 students by next year and a maximum capacity of 30 students later. We are finalising a hostel for 60 students, he added.
Around 19 Canadian universities were here in August to look up our students, he said. The school has 160 students from over twenty nations and staff from eight nations. He added studying for the diploma would offer the students extensive international experience.
Bharat Balasubramaniam, VP, group research and advanced engineering, E/E, IT and processes, DaimlerChrysler AG, who inaugurated the building said that this kind of teaching was more interactive than the earlier frontal teaching methods and would prepare students to live in a global world.
