    Good day.

    Hi, My name is Jabulile Mkhatshwa. I live in South Africa, I am interested in taking a course in B-Tech HND Business and Management For two years and BA (Hon) Business Studies(Uk University) for 1 year at CTI Education Group in South Africa. The college said it was working with the London school of business and management. I want to verify and check if the college is accredited for this particular course. Can you get back to me immediately.

      Hello, i am unsure why you have made this request under the IIE listing. I assume the request is to ask if we accredit either CTI Education Group or London School of Business & Management. Neither of them are accredited now. CTI were accredited until Sep2013, and LSBM were accredited until Oct2012. In both cases, the accreditation was of the organisation as a whole, not of the programmes themselves. Assuming you are seeking confirmation that your degree/programme was recognised, then you need to find out which organisation validated that programme/degree, and whoever that was, seek confirmation from an agency such as ENIC, who will confirm if that organisation is recognised
