A TESTIMONIAL TO EDS
At the outset, may I extend my heartfelt congratulations and deep appreciation to the awardees and graduands for the great opportunity to openly express my views about the EDS Business School in conjunction with its 10th Year Anniversary Celebration as well as Awarding and Graduation Ceremonies.
I must be clear, direct and concise in my testimony about the EDS Business School, less I might state more than I should testify, considering that the distinguished audience in this particular affair come from many countries with different persuasions and cultures. I came to know about EDS Business School sometimes in the year 2008 during an International Leadership Colloquium where Presidents and key officials of Universities and Colleges throughout the world were invited and in attendance in connection with its quarterly offering of its Professional Residential Studies leading to Master's and Doctorate Degrees in Business Administration and PhD in Management in collaboration with the Akamai University, Hilo, Hawaii, USA; Euro College University Studies, Macedonia; as well as the Ifugao State University in Ifugao, Philippines.
I keenly observed and profoundly found that the EDS Business School is very adept and so highly professional in bringing together in one place or group respected global leaders in the academe. Such great gathering successfully produced, as a result, international tie-ups in distance learning and cross-border education between and among colleges and universities in pursuit of quality assurance and excellence in international education not only in the continents of Asia, but also, the continents of America, Europe, Africa, Australia, India as well as the Middle East.
The EDS Business School's Professional Residential Studies are relentlessly pursued with all the organized efforts of its very high caliber faculty members as well as the deeply dedicated and well committed administrative staffs. Its faculty members are no doubt world class in academic reputation considering that they are also actually in international business and academic enterprises. They are professors in their respective universities and holding leadership positions. While its administrative staffs perform with great gusto their assigned duties and responsibilities to the best of abilities with all the respect and humility to their clientele.
Under the sterling leadership of its President, Prof. Datu Dr. Ben Lee, whose administration and governance are beyond reproach and of remarkable quality and excellence, the academic business and management programs have gained high respect and wide acceptance from their academic clientele through distance learning and cross-border education. With this present scenario, President Ben Lee has expanded the reach of his education programs in time and space, widening every nation’s capacity that he is in tie-up with, to educate its people. Known for his marketing skills and knowledge, Pres. Ben Lee usually provides value-adding strategies and innovations through the years in running the affairs of the EDS Business School. With his aptitude in business administration and management, the EDS Business School will soar to greater altitude and be catapulted as one of the best business school in Asia if not the whole world. It is but proper and fitting that the word “International” should be added in its trade name, so it will be known as EDS International Business School, since it is now really what it actually is!
Mabuhay EDS “International” Business School! May it have more success based on its mission, vision, goals, objectives and strategies as a global business school. God bless!
