Arundhati Bhattacharya

The commencement talk for the classes of 2020, 21 and 22 will be given by one of corporate India’s most illustrious personalities.

For the graduating classes of 2020, 21 and 22, the Universal Business School in Mumbai will hold its 11th convocation on Saturday, November 19. A total of 184 students will graduate (thanks to COVID, two batches were not able to do so). The event will be presided over by Arundhati Bhattacharya, Chairperson and CEO of Salesforce, and Bharat Puri, Managing Director of Pidilite Industries, will be the guest of honor.

An incredible “Made in India” success story is the Universal Business School. Up to 70% of the energy used by this unique business school is generated on-campus by solar panels. It is the first business school in India to publish its own environmental, social, and governance (ESG) report, and it has strengthened its commitment to a circular economy by turning campus garbage into “black gold,” which serves as compost for the campus’ 40-acre trees. The AICTE-approved PGDM from Universal Business School is well-liked and provides top-notch placements.

It also offers international MBA courses in collaboration with Cardiff Metropolitan University (Wales, UK), the University of Economics (Varna, Bulgaria), the Swiss School of Management (Italy), Lincoln University (California, USA), the INSEEC School of Business and Economics (Paris, France), the University of Salamanca (Spain), and Northeastern Illinois University (Chicago, USA).

An academic procession, a welcome address by the chairman and founder Tarun Anand, the eagerly anticipated commencement address by the chief guest, a convocation address by the guest of honour, the awarding of degrees and medals to the students, alumni talks, and student of the year awards are all included in the solemn and formal graduation ceremony.

Tarun Anand, Chairman of India’s first green business school, Universal Business School, said, “We are really excited to host both of these corporate stalwarts at our campus. We follow an experiential learning pedagogy where practical and academic knowledge are given equal weightage. We have seen students’ lives transform, when they listen to legends like Arundhati Bhattacharya.”
