Buddhist Monks Enjoy Participation

in EDS Residential Seminars

in Bangkok, Thailand, during 15 - 21 March 2014

EDS Business School was highly honored to have fourteen Buddhist Monks and Nuns, led by His Holiness Tran Van Anh, the Chief Monk from Vientam, in attendance at the EDS International Residential MBA and PhD in Management Programs held at the King Park Avenue Hotel, in Bangkok, Thailand, on 15 - 21 March 2014.

Dr. Douglass Capogrossi, President at Akamai University, also in attendance, stated that the monks were very friendly and easily socialized with the other attendees.  They participated at a praiseworthy level within the seminar classes.

EDS seminar faculty admired the monk’s determination for continuous lifelong learning and desire to seek new knowledge in the contemporary culture.  We were impressed by their level of trust the monks showed in the quality of the education provided by EDS Business School.
