Mr. Tarun Anand has resigned from his position of Managing Director Thomson Reuters, South Asia to render his focus on Universal Business School (UBS), which he co-founded with two other top management professionals; Mr. Gurdip Singh Anand and Mr. Babulal Varma to introduce the highest quality of business management education to India.
Having experienced executive education at some of the best business schools in the world like Ross Business School, Michigan University-USA, Tuck School of Business, USA and IE Business School, Spain, Tarun was motivated to bring a fully residential International stylized campus to Mumbai, India’s financial capital. Universal Business School is India’s 1st Green Business School, endorsed by 55 CEO’s from Indian and multinational corporations, entrepreneurs, academicians, government functionaries and members of the Armed Forces. Spread over a 40 acre campus in the green Karjat valley, on the outskirts of Mumbai, Universal Business School is driven by the 3E Model of Ethics, Environment and Experiential Learning and how the same is integrated in a modern day industry relevant syllabus.
Mr. Tarun Anand Co-Founder, Universal Business School “Universal Business School is a dream come true for me. As a CEO, just being upset with the quality of business education was not good enough; I wanted to find a solution to it. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to engineer the student quality myself by ingraining experiential learning at the core of the Universal Business School curriculum. We are producing outstanding business leaders with a heart to drive India forward. At Universal Business School we have the privileged counsel of 55 CEO’s on our Board of Governors and a global Academic Council from Anderson (UCLA) and Stanford who have guided us through this journey.”
Universal Business School has evolved from the diverse business ideologies of national and international organizations, consisting of thirty eminent faculty members from the finest Indian business schools and globally benchmarked institutions and universities.
