Subhash Chandra bestowed with Honorary Doctorate degree

MUMBAI:  Zeel (Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd) and Essel Group, chairman Subhash Chandra received the Honorary Doctorate of Business Administration from the University of East London (UEL) for his instinctive ability to venture in to new businesses and make them successful.

Chandra received the Doctorate from the University of East London Chancellor Lord Gulam Noon, himself a leading NRI entrepreneur, at a ceremony for its Royal Dock Business School graduates

The citation presented at the event noted, “at the age of 17, Subhash Chandra steered his grandfather’s business back to stability and from Essel it became Essel Group of industries.”

Chandra was privileged to have been considered for the honour. While accepting the award, he thanked the entire senior management team at the Royal Dock Business School. “It is indeed a privilege to be recognised outside one’s country, and in the presence of such highly acclaimed and respected individuals. I thank you all for bestowing this prestigious award that I feel honoured to receive,” he said.

The recognition that Chandra has got isn’t just good for him but will also add a feather to the crown of Zeel and the entire Essel Group. Launched in 1992, brand Zee has earned a global recognition in its reign over the media and entertainment industry for the past 20 years.

Now, on 21 November, Chandra will deliver a keynote speech at AsPIRE, the annual event hosted by JP Morgan at Lord’s to promote Asian-Pacific global leadership. He will take the audience through his life journey from humble beginnings in India to becoming a global billionaire. He will reveal his role models and advise on implementing ideas into successful business operations.
