According to QBuzz, Born in Malaysia, Vijay Eswaran attended the London School of Economics and Southern Illinois University in the United States before returning to Malaysia. Since he believes that education is important, Eswaran is proud of the Quest International University Perak (QIUP), a collaboration between the QI Group and the Perak State Government in Malaysia.
While still at its temporary location, Eswaran has extensive plans for the permanent QIUP campus. He envisions a pollution-free campus with a teaching hospital, a park and an entire city built around the university. Twenty-one students have already earned their degrees, all of who have already found positions.
Vijay may be one of Asia’s richest persons with an estimated net worth of $500 Million USD, but he is often asked to speak at prestigious events because of his philosophy of service above self, which he applies to his business, as well as his personal life.
When Vijay Eswaran spoke at the 46th World Economic Forum in Switzerland, his speech was titled Building Mindful Organizations. Telling a roomful of business leaders at public figures that business is more than simply making money, Vijay Eswaran told the gathering that doing good was just as important as profits.
Eswaran has also addressed the Global Indian Business Meet in New York, the World Chinese Economic Forum in Malaysia and the Global Entrepreneur Summit in Singapore.
A prolific author as well, Eswaran penned Two Minutes from the Abyss, In the Sphere of Silence, In the Thinking Zone and 18 Stepping Stones.
