    That third guy - looks like he paid $870 for his MBA . (58,700 rupees)
    His school? Hey, it's ISO-9001 certified. How bad can it be?

    No UGC, no AICTE, no DEB - did you expect otherwise?

    Here's the school's "accreditation" page. It is accredited by no less than three overseas (UK, Norway and US) private companies that all have much more to do with quality of goods & services, environment, occupational health, food safety, etc. than they do with academia. The US one seems to be a big-time prestigious organization - but what its imprimatur on this school signifies - I'm not quite sure.

    If you're interested, the aforementioned school provides doctorates (DMS - Doctor of Management Studies) for $1315 US. domestically - $2,000 US for foreigners.

    National Institute of Management

    Or maybe a six-month, fast-track Executive MBA is more your style? Those are available too...

    And guess what - all exams are take-home (by post) and open-book! They say:

    (1) They invented it.
    (2) It's similar to their Ph.D. program.

    As to (1) above - I don't think so.
    As to (2) - I have no doubt it's true.

    Don't believe it? See for yourself! It's here: National Institute of Management

    "'NIM' has designed this novel, liberal, rhetoric education methodology that allows students to make maximum benefits in writing answers to secure higher grades..."

    I'm sure it works. Guaranteed!

    I love the line uttered by the man who first got an ISO-9001 certification for a school -- his quite dreadful unaccredited school. He told me, correctly, I believe, that the first person who applies in a given category gets to write the specifications. "I could write the specs for a cement life preserver," he said, "and if I was the first, that would become the standard."

    Based on this, we put an ISO-9001 warning section in our Degree Mills book.

    It's not a cement life preserver but someone we knowhas participated in a concrete canoe competition. Lots of fun for nerdy engineering types.

    It might be novel, but it's not unique: GIMRI, NIRMT, IMTS, ISMS, NIEMS, IMS, NIM (that's Nod Institute of Management and Technology), AIME, EIMT, IDEA, MIHR and NIMT have all designed the same novel, liberal, rhetoric education methodology. And so has the Wisdom School of Management.

    A great many ferro-cement sailboats still ply the backwaters of Puget Sound. They look almost like other kinds of sailboats but somehow "wrong". After a bit of observing experience, you can pick them out pretty quickly. They actually LOOK heavy and thick. They do not, as far as I know, come with cement life preservers.

    If the "National Institute of Management" guys are at the helm -- then maybe they should!
