Magna cum Lauda

Cum is Latin for 'and'. This ad seems to be of Indian origin, judging by his name. Indians use 'cum' as a normal part of their daily language, so you can often see sign such as 'garage cum car wash', or 'hot meals cum snacks', 'lodge cum dhaba'

It means "with" in this particular context :)

In English, the "magna cum laude" would be "with great honour/praise".

When I first started learning Latin in uni it was a bit of a shock to the system to see this word but it's pronounced differently in Latin, so it quickly lost its controversy lol.
