Alumni Life

Business in Bangalore

President Tripathi and Wei-Loon Leong (MBA ’05, BS ’03), director of international alumni engagement, greet guests at UB’s inaugural alumni gathering in India.  

Tripathi participates in graduation ceremonies at Amrita University in Bangalore.


More than 2,000 UB graduates live in India, making them the university’s largest alumni contingent overseas. It is high time, then, to establish an official Indian alumni chapter, said President Tripathi at the country’s first-ever alumni gathering, held in Bangalore last October. The president, who regularly travels around the world to meet with alumni, had a dual mission: to host the above-mentioned event (which drew more than 120 graduates and their families) and to participate in commencement ceremonies at the Bangalore campus of Amrita University. Amrita collaborates with UB on several dual-degree master’s programs and is just one of its many institutional partners abroad.
