The JK Legacy & Values

HSB has been set up under the aegis of JKLU, an initiative of J K Lakshmipat Singhania Education Foundation. Late Lala Lakshmipat Singhania, a key architect of J K Organisation, made JKO one of India’s most respected nation builders for over 130 years. HSB is committed to JKLU’s abiding values:

Late Shri Hari Shankar Singhania

“We can achieve a competitive edge for the Indian economy in the global market. Have not Indian entrepreneurs and professionals distinguished themselves outside the shores of India? Surely, this performance can be achieved on our own Indian soil as well.”

Late Shri Hari Shankar Singhania

Padma Bhushan, Late Shri Hari Shankar Singhania’s professional life is a testimony to this visionary credo. Perceiving the linkages between a nation’s economic development and productive employment of well educated youth, he focussed on quality education in general, and management education in particular. IIM Lucknow pole vaulted to a leadership position during his 15 years (1992-2007) as the Chairman, Board of Governors.

Recognised widely as one of the long serving doyens of Indian industry, he successfully transitioned the J K Organisation from the Licence Raj to the Open Economy as its President, provided momentum to nation’s economic development while leading Indian Institutions, and demonstrated a global vision as President, International Chamber of Commerce, Paris, an honour accorded to only three Indians thus far. His enduring belief in the supremacy of purpose over profit was reflected in his support of numerous community centric philanthropic initiatives.

HSB has been crafted by the JK Organisation to honour his passion for globally relevant and futuristic management education which could drive holistic development in the digital world.

Board of Management

The University’s Board of Management, which governs HSB, defines and fosters a vision and mission that echoes the philosophy of the founding members of JKLU. Distinguished scholars, industry stalwarts, and corporate leaders constitute the management Board and play a crucial role in what we have come to be known for.
