We are proud to share the news of Dr. B. R. Shetty, Executive Vice Chairman & CEO being conferred with an Honorary Doctorate from Middlesex University Dubai on November 12th, 2016 at Jumeirah Beach Hotel’s Safinah Ballroom. Dr. B. R. Shetty was awarded the Honorary Doctorate at the annual Graduation Ceremony where over 800 graduates hailing from over 90 countries were awarded their degrees in front of family, VIP guests and Middlesex University teaching faulty. Dr. B. R. Shetty was recognised for his outstanding contributions to the healthcare industry in the UAE.
The history of Middlesex University began in the late 1880’s, when two educational institutions opened their doors in north London – St Katherine’s College and the Hornsey School of Arts and Crafts. Both would become part of Middlesex Polytechnic, which was founded in 1973. Middlesex was awarded the title ‘University’ – by Royal Assent – in 1992. Shortly after, in 2005 Middlesex University opened its first overseas campus in the emirate of Dubai.
Please join us in congratulating Dr. B. R. Shetty for yet another phenomenal achievement. We will forever be inspired and remain in awe of the incredible life’s journey of an iconic figure.
