We are putting up all that are required to ensure a successful take off of the degree awarding status. If you want to award degree and it is not accepted or relevant to other global institutions then it is not a degree. It is the reason we are carrying along and collaborating with all the institutions that will give credibility and legitimacy to the degree that will be issued by the Academy.
