Impressive Transformation of EDS Graduate

On the morning of Sunday, 27 February 2011, Dr. Ben Lee gathered with Ms. Nguyen Thi Hong Hanh, and two other EDS MBA graduate at Camelia 4 Hotel in Hanoi, Vietnam, to congratulate her on the completion of her Akamai University MBA program via the EDS residential program. At this meeting, Dr. Ben Lee was so impressed and happy to learn that Ms. Nguyen Thi Hong Hanh now holds the position of Deputy General Director of a major construction company in Hanoi. When Ms. Hanh first enrolled for the MBA program, she was holding the position of officer for Helvetas, an NGO based in Switzerland.

Ms. Hanh credits the EDS international resident program in Penang for sparking her career advancement:

After completion of the Akamai MBA program through the residential studies in Penang, I began to have the courage to change my routine job in NGO to a large private construction company.

What impressed Dr. Lee the most was that Ms. Hanh was so full of self-confidence, that it greatly impacted her youthfulness and physical beautiful. Dr. Lee has seen many of the EDS residential graduates experience career transformation after completing their University studies and that is the greatest joy and reward he receives from his leadership role and EDS.

The most satisfaction and happiness for me in leading the EDS Business School is continuing to see our graduates, one-by-one, being greatly transformed, like Ms Hanh.
