History of Technological University of the Americas
Hubert Rampersad, Ph.D., a native from Suriname, is a Harvard Business School endorsed best-selling author and former MIT Sloan guest professor. He did establish THE BUSSINESS SCHOOL OF THE AMERICAS (BSA) and THE TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY OF THE AMERICAS (TUA) in his home country Suriname in 2011, as two separate private online institutions, both recognized by the Department of Higher Education and Community Development (MINOV) and the related Accreditation Body NOVA (reference numbers RS/mp300411/2141 and RS/rn/3489) in order to help poor students in his country to get access to low cost high quality innovative education in technology management and education. BAS initially focused on Business Management and Education and TUA on Technology Engineering. In 2012 BSA became a faculty of TUA in order to provide the best possible education available at the best possible price to develop professionals and leaders in Suriname and the rest of South America.
Now in 2016, TUA is fully focused on providing low-cost distance education in Business Management, Education and Technology Engineering to the poor and those serving the poor in third world countries like Suriname, partly based on its own unique authentic and holistic leadership and management concepts like Total Performance Scorecard, Personal Balanced Scorecard, Authentic Personal Branding, Authentic Governance and TPS-Lean Six Sigma, which are endorsed by leading professors from Harvard Business School, MIT, Yale, London Business School, IMD, INSEAD, etc. and which are currently also being used by these universities.
