SRM University confers D.Litt on Sunil Kant Munjal for his contribution to education, business and humanity

SRM University-DLitt-Sunil-Kant-MunjalSunil Kant Munjal, Joint Managing Director of Hero Corporation has been conferred D.Litt at SRM University for his contribution to education, business and humanity, in a special Convocation Ceremony organized at Kattankulathur campus of the University.

The Founder Chancellor of SRM Educational group, Dr. T.R. Paari Vendhar presided over the Special Convocation. “We are enthused and encouraged in having the presence of Mr. Munjal. To students these kinds of personalities need to be introduced for them to be inspired and motivated,” said the Founder Chancellor in his welcome address.

Sunil Kant Munjal in the ceremony said that there are enormous challenges in the realm of education these days despite the fact that we have had notable educators and educationists, in the Indian history. “The reach is not enough and the mass of the reach is not working to quality expectation. We have to hone in on the realities of what is around us,” said the Hero Moto Corp JMD.

Speaking on the occasion, Prof. Prabir Bagchi, the Vice Chancellor of SRM University, said that Mr. Munjal has placed education as one of his high priorities as he has established BML Educorp Services, a non-for-profit university initiative which is serving as an intellectual and guiding force of the BML Munjal University. “It is a high honor for SRM University to confer the D.Litt on such a multi-faceted personality who has contributed not only to Indian industry and business but also to the cause of socio-economic development of the country as a whole,” said the SRM University VC.

Addressing the audience at the Convocation ceremony, Mr. Munjal said that we have to make the difference to reach out by generating as many as one million jobs every month for the next 15 years as we know that there will be 250 million people who do not have two meals a day. “Forty one per cent of Indian economy is external economy. We must continue to strengthen the local economy so that Indian can go forward”, he added.

He also said that we need to produce research and design thinkers and innovators. “We need to produce thousands of new leaders every year not just in sciences and technology but also in the liberal arts”, he summed up.

Hi Poornima,

The MBA in SRM university is same as MBA in SRM school of management. School of management is just a department under the umbrella of the courses offered by the university.

Good luck
