Premji is chairman of Bangalore, India-based Wipro Ltd. He began leading the company in the late 1960s, taking it from a $2 million hydrogenated cooking fat company into an IT and research and development organization with $8 billion in annual revenues.

The East Lansing school says Premji will address undergraduates at 1 p.m. at the Breslin Center and receive an honorary doctorate of humane letters

Michigan State says that ex-Lockheed-Martin Corp. chief executive Norman Augustine will address the graduation ceremony for advanced degree students later that day. He’s speaking at 3:30 p.m. at Breslin and will get an honorary doctorate of science.
