Subhash Chandra receives Honorary Doctorate from University of East London

Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEE and Essel Group, received Honorary Doctorate of Business Administration from University of East London (UEL).

Chandra received the Doctorate from Lord Gulam Noon, the Chancellor of the University of East London at the ceremony for their Royal Dock Business School graduates.

Accepting the award, Chandra thanked the entire senior management team at the Royal Dock Business School, saying, “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.”

Addressing the graduates present during this event, he advised, “You all should never consider yourselves to be ‘developed’ at any point in time, but should always consider as ‘developing’ in order to never stop learning and enhancing yourself. The key to happiness is to live in the present, rather than regretting the past or worrying about the future.” 

Chandra’s visit also marks the establishment of the broadcaster in the UK/Europe, and follows a recent launch of Ditto TV. Zee TV is now in the process of commissioning new programming produced specifically for the UK and European audience.

On November 21, 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 talk about his role models and advise on implementing ideas into successful business operations.
