Dr Shashi Tharoor, former union minister, renowned author and Member of Parliament representing the Thiruvananthapuram constituency, has joined Gurugram-based Masters’ Union School of Business (MUSB) as a Master. He will teach a foundation course at the Masters’ Union and while doing so will draw from his experience as an eminent thinker, writer, administrator and one of the most revered political voices from India on the world stage.
The course taught by Dr Tharoor will revolve around themes like diplomacy and communications.
During his nearly three-decade long prior career at the United Nations, he served as a peacekeeper, refugee worker, and administrator at the highest levels, serving as Under-Secretary General during Kofi Annan’s leadership of the organisation. He is also an award-winning author of twenty books of both fiction as well as non-fiction, including The Great Indian Novel, The Paradoxical Prime Minister, The Hindu Way and The New World Disorder.
Tharoor will be joining the league of fellow MPs—Dr Narendra Jadhav, Dr MV Rajeev Gowda and former MP Prem Das Rai, who are also teaching at the B-school. MUSB has over 60 Masters from diverse backgrounds, most of whom are industry leaders. The school will commence its first session from August, 2020.
With a sharp focus on technology, and practitioner-led learning, the Masters’ Union School of Business is a collective initiative of some of the leading CEOs, CXOs, educationists and policymakers. Located in Gurugram, the B-school aims to rethink and reinvent how management education is delivered in the country.
