CMJ University barred in Ghana, under cloud back home

Written by Meghalaya Times. Posted in Front Page

Accra, May 16 (IANS): A private Indian university has been barred from recruiting Ghanaian students for its distance learning programmes since it is not accredited in this country. The university is under a cloud back home with a federal probe likely into its affairs - particularly the awarding of an extraordinarily high number of degrees - and its chancellor-promoter is on the run.
The decision of the National Accreditation Board (NAB) against CMJ University, based in Shillong, the capital of the northeastern Indian state of Meghalaya, follows investigations that some foreign institutions without proper credentials had targeted prospective Ghanaian students in their recruitment drives and in some cases duped these students by giving them spurious qualifications.
