He also spent time working as a grape picker in the vineyards of France. While in London, he took to the streets as a cab driver to earn additional money. Eventually, Vijay was introduced to the concept of binary system marketing. These insights into the world of business put Vijay on the path to become qualified by CIMA in the UK. Later, Vijay attended Southern Illinois University. In 1986, he graduated from SIU with an MBA.
