Testimonial by Dr. Dang Thi Anh Hong, our new DBA/PhD in Management graduate from Vietnam

Dr. Dang Thi Anh Hong spoke on behalf of the graduate during the Graduation Ceremony.

I started my PhD at EDS Business School in 2010 and successfully defended my thesis in March 2012 with Great Honor/ Merit result. It seems very short time for girl like me on the path of Ph.D but actually it is really many efforts. Ms. LK Tan always ask me: “Where are you on the way go to top of Mountain?” and I replied as usual “ It is still very high, I am just in the Bottom/ Middle of the Mountain, still climbing up…”. And in 12 March, I have told her that “Ms. LK Tan, I am in the top of Mountain now”. Look back 2 years of my research, The Mountain seems very high but it is shorter and shorter after my supervisor approved for me Chapter by Chapter.

Choosing to come to EDS Business School was one of the best decisions I have ever made. After 3 months looked for DBA/ PhD distance learning program, I found EDS Business School from information of Thai Nguyen University, right after searching information about EDS, I applied for it as they offered the program without a waiting list and they had very clear schedule for program, which was very convenient to me. More than that, it also offered DBA from Ifugao State University, Philippines.

What I liked the most about my experience at EDS was EDS’s team. They made it feel like it was family here. Everybody knew my name and they was really friendly and attentive during the research revision class in Penang.

Successfully completing PhD is the best academic experience and achievement of my life. Thanks to the support and wealth of opportunities provided by EDS I managed to complete my Thesis earlier. Thanks to my supervisor, Professor Dr. Arivalan Ramaiyah, was on hand at all times to provide guidance and support me all the way through my studies.

I am very grateful for the experience, research skills and considerable knowledge that I gained during my time at EDS.
