University of West Georgia President Dr. Beheruz N. Sethna, a graduate of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, was recently honored by the institution as it celebrated its 50th anniversary. IIMA, as part of marking its milestone, awarded the designation of distinguished alumnus to 40 alumni recipients, including Sethna. Founded with active collaboration from Harvard Business School, the Indian Institute of Management is considered to be the best business school in India and is also considered to be one of the most respected schools in the Asia-Pacific region. His fellow award recipients include Ashok Alexander, India Country Director of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation and Ajay Banga, president and CEO of MasterCard Worldwide.
While this honor is historic it is not the first of its kind bestowed upon Sethna. Prior to this award, Sethna has also been honored with the title of distinguished alumnus of the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. IITB is India’s premier engineering school. This places Sethna as being a distinguished alumnus from both of the best undergraduate and graduate institutions in India.
