Janab Nawab Shah Alam Khan
A descendent of nobility of erstwhile Hyderabad State, he is one of the leading industrialists, a philanthropist, an educationist and an administrator. He held the positions of chairman of A.P. minority state financial corporation, Member of the Board of Management and Academic Senate of Osmania University and Member of the Academic Council of Aligarh Muslim University.
He is widely respected as one of the leading lights of education in general and minority education in particular, in the country. He has been the guiding spirit behind the Association’s growth and success. At the time he took over the Anwarul Uloom Educational Association, more than three decades ago, the institutions under its aegis were in a state of neglect and stagnation.
He immediately got down to the task of creating an academic ambience, the college lacked. This was followed by a series of academic and administrative reforms that connected the academia with the world outside and made education significant and relevant. The introduction of the Post-Graduate Courses including M.B.A., in the late eighties, is a measure of Nawab Shah Alam Khan’s vision and foresight.
Nawab Shah Alam Khan envisions a future for Anwarul Uloom where it stands on par with world leaders in the field of education. His dream for Anwarul Uloom encompasses an umbrella organisation whose institutions set benchmarks in education and scale new academic peaks.
