The life and timeline for Vijay Eswaran is impressive and can even be used as model for personal and professional success. The start for this timeline is not so unlike many others, and the turns in it are not all exciting. However, the end results and evidence of Vijay Eswaran’s good works total more than one to say the least.
Vijay Eswaran’s time line begins October 7th, 1960. Pushpavathy Chinnaiah and Vijayaratnam Saravanamuthu are Vijay’s parents and are credited with raising him. Just 24 years after birth, Vijay graduates from the London School of Economics with a degree in Socio-Economics. Not long after that, the man receives certification from CIMA in the UK. Following through with his education, Vijay achieves an MBA from Southern Illinois University in 1986. Twenty six years is not long at all, in a lifetime, to reach that level of education.
With formal schooling and higher education out of the way, Vijay is presented with an opportunity for MLM marketing in a company named Synaptics. Vijay does well there but really starts to make his splash when he joins the Cosway group. Without a doubt, this where he learns the ins and outs of business building and also gains valuable networking connections. With the credentials, experience and network building behind him, Vijay co-founds the QI Group of Companies. Not only does he help build the QI Group of Companies he is named the executive chairman. Vijay also establishes Qnet in 1998. With so much done in so little time it is no wonder that the man is recognized so often for his work.
In recognition of his service and effort, Vijay is presented with the “Special Award for Education and Leadership” by the Malaysian Prime Minister of Education Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh. But that is not the only major recognition he receives. Vijay is also awarded “CEO of the year” by Malaysian Business Advisory Council and presented an award by the Malaysian Minister of International trade Dato Sri Mustapa Mohamed. He deserves such accolades as a philanthropist, speaker and the man responsible for the Quest International University in Perak.
Beside earning awards for long time service in business and education. Vijay writes on the subject of personal success and reflection. His titles, “In the Sphere of Silence”, “In the Thinking Zone”, “18 Stepping Stones” and “On the Wings of Thought”, earn him the bragging rights of being a published author. Perhaps that is why Vijay Eswaran is one of Forbes Asia’s “Heroes of Philanthropy”.
