The Global Accreditation Bureau (GAB) states it is “a globally recognized accreditation body taking care of the standards and quality of education provided by online, traditional and distance learning institutions for working adults.” Beware though, this agency doesn’t exist anymore and if you see a school that has “GAB-accreditation,” be warned! Take also a look at this GetEducated video on how to see if an online college is fraudulent or not:
Over the years, GAB has been functioning worldwide, providing accreditation status to institutions after “proper evaluation and inspection”. The GAB says it is recognized by the Online Distance Learning Accreditation (ODLA) Association, another non-recognized and not respected or established “accreditation associations of academic institutions and accrediting agencies worldwide.” All a lot of nonsense!
The first and foremost goal behind the development of GAB was to make students believe the organization was set up to enhance the quality standards of education, currently being provided to working adults. Till date, GAB has not been assessing and accrediting educational institutions and also not ” based on its predefined and proven evaluation methodologies.”
