Important Note Addressing COVID-19 Concerns
Twelve years ago, Dexterity Global was founded to power the next generation of leaders. And, there hasn’t been a moment in our lives when we haven’t put our children first. Our responsibility is not just to prepare them as global leaders but also support and shield them during crisis. And, in this moment of crisis, we have made a choice no different. With 182 countries under lockdown, our nation reeling under a public health crisis and our communities being far from safe, we have decided to switch the way Dexterity School of Leadership and Entrepreneurship (DexSchool) would work this year.
DexSchool education happens in three stages — weeklong in residence, yearlong active mentoring and lifelong support system. In a usual year, candidates begin with the weeklong residential experience, followed by yearlong education (online learning and follow-up). This year, taking the public health crisis and the safety of our children into account, DexSchool has switched the residential experience to the last week of the programme (instead of the first). That means, DexSchool will start as planned on June 01, 2020, without any delay, and run until June 2021 (in its digital classroom and monthly modules). The residential week for the Class of 2020 will be from June 1 to June 7, 2021 (instead of 2020).
With this, everything remains the same for Class of 2020 — weeklong in residence, yearlong active mentoring and lifelong support system. Just the week in residence is at the end of the programme and not the beginning. Candidates would still start their DexSchool education on June 01, 2020 and finish in June 2021.
We hope you will be a positive role model and a pillar of support for many around you during this unprecedented times. Stay Safe!

Information for Low and Middle-Income Students
Through a financial aid policy that says, "If you can pay, you pay. Else, we pay for you", Dexterity Global's Office of Financial Aid ensures that DexSchool is accessible to students from all income groups and zip codes. These cases may include but are not limited to students who lost a parent or an earning member of their family, families in possession of a Below Poverty Line (BPL) Card, or those who attend lower income schools or come from extremely marginalized communities.
Applicants will include in their applications if they would like to be considered for need-based financial aid. Admission decisions are made on a fully need-blind basis and thus applying for aid has no bearing on the applicant's chances of getting in.
