Farewell to Dr. Theresa Marie Sweeney [26. Jun. 2014 - 11:44]
Theresa Sweeney was a self-taught artist. Born in Rochester, New York, she took to art as soon as she was able to hold a crayon. Throughout her childhood, Theresa developed a deep appreciation for the outdoors. She spent many happy hours playing in the field behind her house and down by the pond at the end of her street. Catching frogs, making daisy chains, and camping under the stars, her “home” was the natural world. Years of artistic expression and enjoying Nature made it clear that her life would be centered upon her passions. In 2002, she earned her Ph.D. in Applied Ecopsychology from Akamai University, Hawaii, and the Doctor of Education from San Juan de la Cruz in Costa Rica.

Thank you to my Pastor Rev. Simon Chow, whom has introduced to me and encouraged me to study for this MBA these past two and one half years., because before that I had little interest and time for such study. I had felt there was little I could learn in school that I could not learn from the day-to-day business environment. After I have studies and completed the hard-earned MBA degree, I realize I have acquired a great deal of knowledge and benefits
What Akamai and EDS Business School Stand For [26. Jun. 2014 - 11:37]
Testimonial by Prof. Dr. Daphne M. Tequillo-Mallari, 2012 Graduate in PhD in Management
My enrollment in the Akamai PhD in Management program with its educational partner, EDS Business School (EDS) in Malaysia started more on curiosity than on knowledge building. Being a Certified Public Accountant whose inclination is on the practicalities of life, I tend to look more on providing solutions to problems rather than on building theories. Thus, similar to other people from my profession, getting a higher education degree was low on my priority list..
My stay at Akamai/EDS, however, expanded my paradigm. The school designed a curriculum in small packages consisting of workable theories that are easy to assimilate, are highly practical and mentally stimulating. Designed for executives and professionals, the program may be completed in a year or two depending on the amount of effort and concentration one is able to give..
