    They say their degrees are validated by Fairfax University and Athabasca. An odd combination. Can anyone supply any more info on the London School of Manamgenet?

    Wow! You get a Fairfax degree and Fairfax is stated to be an American University. If you want to brag about a degree go elsewhere.

    As I understands, the LSM is charted by British Government and its Royal Charter. LSM is accredited by the British Accreditation Council (BAC).

    LSM degrees are accepted into UK universities, New Zealand ones andI think into Australians as well.

    I looked briefly at Fairfax's website. I'm not an expert on these matters, but it looks bogus to me.

    Tom, are you referring to Fairfax Or to the LSM?

    I believe you to be incorrect. London school of Management cannot grant degrees. It does not appear to be authorized to teach degrees to be granted by others.

    You might be thinking of the London School of Economics or London Business School, both of which grant University of London degrees.

    Fairfax has been legislated out of South Dakota and Louisiana. We are not sure of its present location.

    Yes Your correct, LSM is only accredited by the British Accreditation Council (BAC) and I dont know much about the BAC role in UK.

    And as for Fairfax,

    Fairfax University is an international, multi-state incorporated, not-for-profit degree granting institution serving the needs of the mid-career and senior professional individual. Fairfax University offers its programs and provides administrative supports systems in such a manner as to facilitate the most expedient means of communication with its student body and adjunct faculty. The University is legally incorporated in the states of Louisiana, South Dakota, and Montana (USA) and maintains its School of Theology and Religious Studies in Louisiana. To afford students and faculty a centralized administration all communications and correspondence are handled by the University's International Administration Office in Louisiana.

    Fairfax must be incorporated or registered somewhere other than Loiusiana because it is not accredited as is required. We are unsure of the nature of its authority to grant degrees.

    Fairfax is an old John Bear school from way back although I don't think I am actually supposed to say that.
