Ho Chi Minh City, 14 June 2012
Dear Dr. Ben Lee,
Thank you so much for giving me a special chance to receive my DBA from Ifugao State University and PhD in Management from Akamai University in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. I, may be, the luckiest EDS’s DBA/PhD student, who missed a chance to attend the Graduation Ceremony in Penang, Malaysia on March 12, 2012, but instead of that, today I am able to receive it here, in my country, in front of all my friends, family’s members. How’s a nice surprise! I feel very happy, and very impressed about your kind efforts, and special care of my case.
During 4 years taking joint DBA/PhD program at EDS Business School, I had been faced with too many challenges: how to balance between works, study, life at the same time. Not less than 3 times I already wanted to give up the program! However, thanks to EDS lecturers’ assistance. encouragement & supports, Dr. Havindar Singh, Dr. Sue Lim, Professor Dr. Karling, Professor Loh Wei Hoong… especially, Professor Dr. Premkumar, my supervisor, thanks to your valuable guidance, patience, and encouragement, I finally completed my doctorate dissertation on time.
Although time passes by, 4 years are not so long, but it’s not too short for any student to experience your warm hospitality, and caring. I would like to take this opportunity to express my special thanks to EDS’s team, especially Ms. LK. Tan, who had arranged the best conditions for me when taking courses in Malaysia, Philippines and Vietnam. I, my self will not forget those time. It’s very memorable and forgettable!
Finally, thank you so much Dato Dr. Ben Lee, the president of EDS Business School, Malaysia; Prof. Dr. Ngohayon, the president of Ifugao State University, Philippines and Prof. Dr. Douglass Capogrossi, the president of Akamai University, USA for what you have done for us – foreign students to fulfill their dreams. I wish you, EDS, IFSU, and Akamai University all the best to the future: Success, success & more success!
