Zee and Essel Group chairman Subhash Chandra has received the Honorary Doctorate of Business Administration from the 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.”
Chandra’s visit also marks the establishment of the broadcaster in the UK and Europe, and follows a recent launch of DittoTV, an online, tablet and mobile platform providing live streams and TV on demand from 17 Zee channels. Zee TV is now in the process of commissioning new programming produced specifically for the UK and European audience.
