    From the webpage of representative office in Bejing, China, the history of the University is as follows:

    1978 Established in New Mexico
    1996 Upgraded from College to University status
    1999 Moved administrative office to, Carson, California (40 minutes from LA Airport)

    President: Dr. Thomas N. Pappas

    The photos of President and some buildings (campus or not?) can be accessed at:

    The first intake of MBA students in Bejing, China will be started shortly. The program fee is RMB 28,000 (i.e. US$3,400) and ALL must be paid before the start of the program.

    Interestingly, some "University Certificates" are listed at

    I can't understand those "certificates" listed in the webpage.

    The University is not listed in the list of accredited colleges and universities in California:

    and is not listed in the Directory of Private Postsecondary Institutions in California:

    It is also listed in Bear's Guide (14 ed.) nor in the Oregan unaccredited universities' webpage:

    A search through Google finds nothing.

    Is that University "invisible" or "non-existent"?

    Edit, edit and edit...., the problem is that no preview can be made before posting.

    Thanks, it seems unaccredited and no faculty and staff listed in its website.
