Over a span of 20 years, Lata Bavisi has had a very exciting career with experiences in different industries across the globe. As a trained attorney, she has been able to help steer many of these organizations. These roles manifested into leadership positions which benefited the organizations greatly as she played a pivotal role to help corporate growth. She has over 15 years of experience as a member of the board of EC-Council in Asia, which is noted as one of the world’s largest information security certification bodies.
The decision of joining EC Council University as the Vice President was the result of her passion for academia, and her knowledge of the educational industry was instrumental in implementing cyber security knowledge into academe, with an aim to achieve practical results in the “real world”.
The diverse roles of her career have given her the skills, abilities, and experience to enable her to view the Vice President’s role from three complementary perspectives: as an educator, responsible for facilitating students’ growth and learning; as an “education end-user,” understanding the needs of those who employ our graduates; and as a leader of an institution, understanding the need of creating an institution that exudes quality, excellence and innovation in all that it does to ensure its success.
In the Board meeting of October 2017, the Board unanimously recognized Lata’s contribution in the transformation of the university and promoted her to the position of President, effective November 1, 2017.
