Our beloved Chairman Gurdip Singh Anand, worked across multiple continents and managed billion dollar businesses across his professional career. He was as much at ease dealing with Swiss, Dutch, British, American top executives as dealing with the tough Indian labour unions or bureaucrats. His managerial acumen and expertise allowed him to effortlessly work across multiple industries during his life time, like Oil & Gas, Pharmaceuticals, Air-Conditioning, Industrial Projects, Music, Software, Hardware, Security Services and Bottled Water. Even though he was a world class management professional, his first love was teaching and he spent every weekend for over 35 years teaching and mentoring students at leading b-schools like JBIMS (his alma mater), SPJIMR, NMIMS and SIMSR. As a Management Consultant, he trained corporate CEO’s and Top Management from the leading MNC’s and Indian conglomerates from the Tata Group to Mahindra Group and even left his impact on the Indian Army and the Indian Navy.
In 2008, he decided that Mumbai needs a world class residential business school. Toward this endeavour, he sacrificed all his earnings over the decades to build Universal Business School where he selflessly worked for over a decade to establish it into the Top 5 B-schools in Mumbai without even taking a single rupee as salary. He was a voracious reader and a fabulous and captivating Professor. Students loved him and he gained the distinction of being called a ‘Superman’ by the students of SPJIMR. He played sports with the UBS students and would sing and dance with them even at 75 years of age and would compete enthusiastically with them.
He followed the most ethical values, was extremely passionate about saving the planet by protecting the environment and practiced giving through a number of CSR projects. Thus he laid the foundation of UBS and we will always follow in his footsteps
This was our beloved Chairman’s favourite poem which exemplifies his life…
Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be, For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance, I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance, My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears, Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years, Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll,
The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) was approved by the MHRD and launched by the Honorable Minister of Human Resource Development on 29th September 2015.

Leadership in Action will be exercised in several ways at Universal. Student Teams will play leading roles during School Events and undertake Academic Projects, Assignments and Case Studies. Other Student Teams will support the governance of several areas of Business School operations. These processes will ensure that our students have multiple opportunities of working and collaborating with their peers, faculty and the school management team. We will inculcate amongst the Student leaders the ethos: “WHEN GIVEN COMMAND, TAKE CHARGE AND DO WHAT IS RIGHT”.
Our ‘Leadership in Action Workshops’ will bring high profile senior academic, business, social and political leaders to our institute. This will ensure, that our students will have several direct interactions with leadership, from different fields.
The Indian Institute of Leadership Development, which is being set-up at our campus, will train managers from leading Corporates, in the fine art and science of leadership development. Our students, will have access to these Workshops and benefit enormously from the high quality of debate & dialogue, which will ensue during these prestigious events. These learnings will go a long way in enhancing the leadership competencies, of participating managers, as well as, our students. Progressively, we expect to attract managers from across the globe, to be attracted to these Leadership Development events.
Our Diversity Policy is driven by the belief that it is an important strategy for organisational success, to harness the different types of intelligence / capabilities that are available to us. The Universal Business School™ values people with different experiences and styles of working, thinking, communicating, challenging, and leading, arising out of working with members of different creeds, ethnicities, sex, race, casts and nationalities. The ‘Universal’ in our school’s name, was derived out of these beliefs. We know that diverse teams are the best teams, as they can make informed decisions, by considering multiple points of view.
At Universal we provide equal opportunities to all. We take pride in our admissions policy which ensures that, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, disability, age or any other protected classification, you will be admitted to the Institution.
We continuously seek to enhance the understanding of diversity issues, by encouraging frank discussion of ‘tough’ diversity related issues, so that our students and faculty arrive at mature & socially responsible responses. We will encourage our students to deal with conflicting views, by coaching them both in terms of emotional intelligence & respect for others views. We shall ensure that we create an inclusive work environment, at our Business School.
Economic empowerment means fixing the broken rungs, at the bottom of the poverty to wealth ladder. Every individual must be given the skills, resources and the confidence to take control of their life, achieve their performance potential and benefit from the opportunities of the liberalised economy. We at Universal will develop Human Capital, to become the most valuable resource for addressing the multifarious challenges which are being faced by organisations, in the ‘interesting times’ in which we live today.
Universal Business School™ as stated in our promise is fully committed to ensuring that the leaders of tomorrow are sensitive towards Corporate Social Responsibility, the Environment and are passionately committed towards Ethical Practices, in the conduct of their personal & professional lives. Even in the admission processes, candidates will be evaluated in terms of their attitudes, behaviors & contributions towards societal causes. These aspects will have significant weightage, along with other important criteria like education, work experience & attainments in extra-curricular activities. We do believe that this is critical towards ensuring that our alumni do not merely pay lip service towards these values, but are passionate about their societal responsibilities. We believe that strengthening concern for societal causes in our students will enable them to lead better lives and help the organisations they work for, to become better corporate citizens. We sincerely believe that CSR contributes significantly, towards achieving enduring business success, in the long run.
Special SMART (Social Management Aptitude and Responsibility Temperament) projects will be designed to ensure that each and every student undergoes a project, focused towards a social cause they are passionate about, at an NGO or some social / government enterprise. The SMART Project will ensure that we produce CSR compliant citizens, for global organisations.
