WES didn't recognize my 2 year Executive Post Graduate Certificate from IMT Ghaziabad (U.P. ,India)
Following were the comments:


Credential Authentication: Documents were sent directly by the institution
Country: India
Credential: Executive Postgraduate Program
Year: 2012
Awarded By: Institute of Management Technology, Ghaziabad
Status: Non-recognized Program
Major/Specialization: Business Management
Canadian Equivalency: One year of post-secondary study at a non-recognized institution
Remarks: The credential is not comparable to a completed Canadian education credential.



Whereas my course was a 2 year classroom learning course which was specially designed for my sponsoring organization.
The admission was done through a test.


I wrote them the following :


This is in regards to the evaluation of my post graduation certificate. As per the result it it has been marked as not recognized. I request for a re-evaluation of this result. It was a 2 year program which was conducted by the IMT and partly sponsored by the organization for meritorious employees. There was a test conducted for the same and employee's were selected on the basis of merit. This was a weekend course where the teaching was done in person by Professors campus. Also the assignments and tests were conducted by the University Professors. The course was completed over a period of 2 years. Infact the same has been mentioned overleaf on the certificate as well. The degree could have been Executive Post Graduate Diploma had it been on IMT Ghaziabad campus but since classes were conducted in campus therefore it was awarded as Executive Post Graduate Certificate. As I have invested a lot of time and effort for 2 years, therefore would request you to reconsider this evaluation. I am not sure for the details in Transcript but I can get the supporting documents required from the institute and even can involve the Program Director from IMT regarding any verification or confirmation. And request again for a second chance of re-evaluation.


Response from WES:


In India, recognition is granted by AICTE. However, it is responsible for the recognition of individual academic programs. It does not recognize institutions as a whole. According to our resources, your program of study is not recognized.

If the program you attended is AICTE accredited, you may wish to contact the institution and request them to re-submit official documentation to WES that clearly indicate that the program has AICTE accreditation. On receipt of the documents we will revisit your request to review the evaluation report and advice as appropriate.

We reviewed your evaluation report and confirmed that it is correct. We would like to emphasize that WES evaluations are advisory opinions and not binding upon any institution or organization.



Please advise how to take it further as the IMT has said that this was a specially designed course for the organization.
