Amstrad's entrepreneurial boss Alan Sugar has been made an Honorary Doctor of Science at the City University in London.
Sugar - who left school at 17 to pursue his business career - established close contacts with the University last year after giving a series of business lectures. During these talks, Sugar advised the budding business giants to avoid journalists, Americans and everything else that doesn't represent a healthy mark up.
He also founded the Amstrad Research Scholarship for innovative students, tutored other students on the development of new products and has invited graduates to join Amstrad.
Sugar has lately become more of a public figure with innumerable newspaper profiles, the 'Europe open for business' TV ads and even an interview with Terry Wogan on television. This move into the establishment though is not said to have cooled his reputed hot temper.
