As some of you may have guessed, this is an IIPM alert!.

Careers 360 has the goods on the real value of the BBA and MBA 'degrees' that IIPM students are eligible for.
Since a recent IIPM ad mentioned that these degrees are "from IMI, Europe!", Careers 360 wrote to the higher ed regulator in Belgium to get the inside scoop. And they've got it.
The essence of the letter [the Belgian regulator's response] is as follows:
The MBA/BBA degree given by IMI, Belgium is not recognised and hence not legitimate even in its country of origin, Belgium.
Students in Belgium using the title ‘Master’ or ‘Bachelor’ can even be prosecuted, if it is based on a degree given by IMI.
Using those titles (given by IMI, Belgium) without holding a legitimate degree is illegal in Belgium.
The gullibility of some MBA aspirants in India is truly shocking.
