BA from Rangoon University

I know many Burmese students don't care for a bachelor degree from Rangoon University in the present day. They are all flocking to study in neighboring Thailand or Singapore polytechnics.

But let's rewind back a few decades and look at what Rangoon University alumni from those decades are like today. Here is an economics professor from Columbia University with a BA from Rangoon University.

Professor Ronald Findlay from Columbia University:

Professor Findlay holds a BA from Rangoon University in Burma (1954). In 1960 he earned a PhD from MIT. At Rangoon University, he was appointed a tutor in economics (1954-57), a lecturer in economics (1960-66), and a research professor of economics (1966-68).

And there is another world-famous professor Hla Myint, who is noted for development economics. He taught at Rangoon University and later at the London School of Economics.

Professor Hla Myint, Professor of Economics.
