Frequently Asked Questions

Does Creative Network-Marketing Research Institute have any accreditation?

Accreditation is a non-governmental peer review process in which the integrity and good faith of an institution and its officers are essential. The burden of proof in demonstrating compliance with standards rests with the institution, not with the Accrediting Commission. The institution must prove to the Accrediting Commission that it meets or exceeds the standards.

The Accrediting Commission considers information about an applicant institution from any source in reaching its conclusion. Accreditation is by its nature a formal, but nonetheless, collegial process. It works best when there is a common agreement that the chief purpose for seeking accreditation is the identification of soundness, honesty and quality in the practice of distance education.

Creative Network-Marketing Research Institute has obtained accreditation by ICODE under the category “Professional and Further Education Centers”. The International Commission on Distance Education holds consultative status, special category, with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of United Nations.

ICODE accreditation membership serves as a quality assurance mechanism and endorsement of Creative Network-Marketing Research Institute. Having achieved accreditation means that Creative Network-Marketing Research Institute has met the Commission's academic standards, institutional governance, financial management and ethical practice guidelines.
