Chairman and Managing Director of CG Holdings, Arun Chaudhary, was awarded the Honorary Doctorate Degree in Entrepreneurship for his outstanding strategic mindset, people management skills and philanthropy by the Limkokwing University of Creative Technology, Malaysia on December 19. He was awarded this honor by the Prince of Malaysia and the Founder and President of Limkokwing University during the Graduation Ceremony of the University. Limkokwing University is a center of creativity and innovation with presence across Africa, Europe, UK and Asia. With its main campus in Malaysia, the university has over 30,000 students from more than 150 countries.
During his acceptance speech, Arun Chaudhary said that the reason for his interest in the educational sector of Nepal was to bring world class education to the domestic students of the country. He cited the case of youth migration seeking education and employment abroad and the financial and mental stress that the family of such migrants is unthinkable and shared that if similar level of education could be provided locally, he is confident that a change in the attitude of youth could be brought about to become job creators rather than job seekers.
Chaudhary believes in creating value not limiting to profit but to the society and nation. CG Holdings operates successfully across myriads of discipline including education, tourism, real estate, manufacturing, financial services, retail and automobile of which he stands at the helm.
