S’POREAN: I WORKED SO HARD TO GET RECOGNISED DEGREE WHILE FT USE FAKE DEGREE

I did not study so hard to get a degree from an Accredited university for Singaporean employers to suddenly be allowed to consider applications of people with Mill degrees (as long as they have sufficient experience?!)

The IDA says that it is satisfied that applications consultant Nisha Padmanabhan did not deceive the agency by listing the MBA from Web-based Southern Pacific University, an alleged diploma mill, in her resume.
