Awarded by University of Northampton – UK 

Recognised by the University Grants Commission (UGC) Sri Lanka.



MBAs are amongst the most popular degrees in the world. The Harvard University established the first MBA programme in 1908. Since then, many thousand institutions & universities award MBAs. Amongst these are unscrupulous institutions which award bogus or fake MBAs or claim dubious ranking. A Google search could provide many insights into unaccredited MBAs which offer low cost Degree certificates & transcripts.

When embarking on a MBA, a prospective student must establish without a doubt the credentials of the awarding institution and its academic reputation. The esteem & admiration, recognition & respect for a qualification are derived from the awarding institution. The subject coverage, duration of study and depth in learning content are ingredients that make a difference between a respected MBA and an ordinary MBA.
