Fake degree scams in Dubai and UAE
- A number of unversities and colleges based in the UAE will provide degrees upon payment of the fees but without requiring attendance or exam passes from enrolled students. Some of these institutes are allegedly accredited by the UAE MOHESR.
- Prospective students should investigate carefully the reputation of the institute at which they are enrolling to avoid becoming victims of a scam involving bogus or fake qualifications.
- Emirates Business 24-7 reported on the issue of fake MBAs in Dubai on 30 January 2011 but did not name any institutes.
- Professor Rajasekharan Pillai, Vice-Chancellor of the Indira Gandhi National Open University in India (IGNOU) was quoted as saying "There are many cases involving various universities. We are aware of the problem and strict measures are being put in place."
- Several institutes in the UAE offer IGNOU courses, possibly including:
- Not clear which, if any, of these institutes Prof Pillai was referring to in his comments - no names were reported.
- Price range for fake MBA degrees was reported as AED 10,000-20,000. Not clear if that was for only UAE institutes, or included institutes in India which also offer study-free degrees for a price. One source said a non-MBA graduate certificate from India cost him only AED 5,000.
