The University of Cambodia has named its business school after AirAsia’s group CEO, Tony Fernandes.
The university unveiled the “Tony Fernandes School of Business” and its accompanying logo this week, along with a lecture hall within the school which is named after AirAsia.
Fernandes had earlier been conferred an Honorary Doctorate in Management by the university for his work in developing air travel in the ASEAN region.
“What an amazing honour to be recognised by the University of Cambodia. I’m not sure I deserve to have a school named after me but I hope the students here will be inspired by what they can achieve if they believe the unbelievable, dream the impossible and never take no for an answer,” said Fernandes.
This week AirAsia announced plans to launch flights Sihanoukville, its third destination in Cambodia.
