Dear Dean and Faculty


After careful review of your accredited business school, our certification standards council has decided to sanction  your accredited program and exam standards for certification eligibility.   Therefore, your regionally and nationally accredited program would be a qualifying path to certification and earning professional designations.

Our Certification Board of Standards has been at the forefront of quality assurance, accredited education and exams for over a decade. Thus, we are the only management and financial body in the world that offers certification and charter designations to those who complete an accredited degree program and exams in finance and business related topics from accredited business schools worldwide.

Our organization and board of standards has been a professional member and supporter of the accreditation authorities ACBSP and AACSB for over a decade, and we strongly promote and support accredited business school degree assessment and graduate programs as an alternative to  any outsourced certification courses or outsourced tests. 

Because your accredited program is recognized by an CHEA sanctioned accreditation agency, your finance major graduates may immediately apply for the AFA®  Accredited Financial Analyst ®; your accounting graduates can apply for AMA® Accredited Management Accountant ®, and your management majors may apply for AMC ® Accredited Management Consultant ® certification upon completion of relevant degree with a 2.5 GPA or higher. 

Further, your program may also use the "Certified Program" logo on your websites, brochures and in recruiting materials as being an accredited provider of certification education and exams.  With the legal changes over the last 20 years in law, compliance and education, it is imperative that the public have access to degree holding professionals with (relevant accredited degree competency ) in their portfolio of skills and training.  Overall, our certification body has always been focused on the highest standards which include: Accredited Education, Assessment at an Government Recognized Institutions, Experience, Ethics and Continuing Education, Governance, and Compliance.

Please notify your students or alumni regarding their immediate eligibility upon graduation. In this global & digital age, the GAFM  ® or financial related credentials and other designations can greatly improve the probability of employment for applicants worldwide. ®  

Also, each campus is allowed an Honorary PhD member and Advisor at no cost who may become a member of our advisory council.  Thus, a doctorate level faculty member  may acquire  a certification or qualification by making direct petition to our board of standards.

If this proposal is acceptable, we can promote your quality program as an approved provider of certification education on our dozens of websites and provide you with the special seal of approval logo for your websites and brochures.
