LIGS University is a private university established and acting in accordance with the law codified in Chapter 446E of the Hawaii Revised Statutes. LIGS University is acting in accordance with the accreditation standards of the accrediting agencies International Association for Distance Learning (IADL) and American Association for Management Education and Accreditation (AAMEA), and its goal is to provide high quality programs using modern methods of education such as oxford tutorial model and effective interactive online education.
Note: In the United States, many licensing authorities require accredited degrees as the basis for eligibility for licensing. In some cases, accredited colleges may not accept for transfer courses and degrees completed at unaccredited colleges, and some employers may require an accredited degree as a basis for eligibility for employment.
Main goal of the LIGS University is to provide high quality, ready to use in practice, and affordable programs for students around the world. Accreditation from an accrediting agency recognized by the United States Secretary of Education could significantly raise the tuition while the high quality of education would remain the same. Moreover, LIGS University feels the rigid accreditation standards of national or regional accrediting bodies limit too much the freedom of providing education based on modern trends to the community of students worldwide. Therefore LIGS University made the decision to keep the independence in creating curriculum and programs by standards of renowned associations allowing it to provide education in a more efficient and student-friendly way.
