Vijay Eswaran’s Extraordinary Commitment To Education

QI Group Executive Chairman Vijay Eswaran recently received the Lifetime Achievement Award in Global Entrepreneurship at The 8th World Chinese Economic Summit, honoring his work in the QI Group of companies since 1998. However, Eswaran also encourages others to start their own business by becoming independent representatives of QNET, the QI Group’s flagship direct selling company. Eswaran’s philosophy of RYTHM, or Raise Yourself to Help Mankind, dictates QNET’s mission, which is to empower men and women to become successful by paying independent representatives a commission for promoting QNET’s products, which allows them to be in business for themselves.

A philanthropist as well as a successful entrepreneur, Eswaran was one of Forbes Asia’s Heros of Philanthropy in 2011. Working through two foundations; the RYTHM Foundation and the Vijayaratnam Foundation, Eswaran primarily supports projects that benefit women and youth. With its mission of continuing the philanthropic work of Eswaran’s father, the Vijayaratnam Foundation supports a number of humanitarian projects.

In 2016, Eswaran was awarded an honorary Doctorate in Economics and Global Business from the Pannasastra University Cambodia. He also gave an inspiring speech at the university’s graduation ceremony. Deeply involved in education, Eswaran founded the Quest International University Perak, which is a QI Group and Perak state government joint venture. When University Council Chairman Eswaran spoke at the 18th Malaysian Education Summit, where he received the Special Award for Education Entrepreneurship and Leadership, he spoke about the need for Malaysians to learn to speak English to compete in the global market. Currently, the Quest International University Perak is one of Malaysia’s fastest growing universities.
