University of Manchester awards an Honorary doctorate to Ratan Tata

National Edu News

The University of Manchester has awarded an Honorary Degree of Enterprise to Ratan Tata, one of India’s most famous and successful industrialists and philanthropists. The award took place at a special ceremony in Mumbai, led by the University’s President and Vice Chancellor, Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell. Professor Rothwell is visiting the country to strengthen research and industry links between India and the University.

Ratan Tata is Chairman Emeritus of Tata Sons – the holding company of the Tata group. The group is one of India’s best known and trusted organisations for over 150 years. Under Ratan’s leadership, from 1991 to 2012, it also became a global name and is now one of the largest conglomerates in the world. Tata became a world-wide name with the acquisition of major international brands such as Tetley, Daewoo, Corus, Jaguar and Land Rover.

It is this sense of social responsibility and philanthropy that links Ratan to The University of Manchester as the University also shares these values. Social Responsibility is one of Manchester’s three core strategic goals sitting equally alongside our commitments to world-class research, and outstanding learning and student experience.
