FAQ about EUCLID awards/degrees
EUCLID has prepared this FAQ to answer the questions about the usefulness and recognition of the EUCLID MPH degree for Public Health U graduates.
Public Health U graduates are eligible to obtain the EUCLID MPH without extra coursework and enroll in the online EUCLID Ph.D. in International Public Health. The points below give some background to EUCLID.
EUCLID was established by an intergovernmental treaty in 2008. In December 2012, the United Nations Secretariat confirmed that EUCLID was recognized as accredited and, therefore, its graduates were eligible to use their EUCLID degrees within the UN system.
EUCLID is one of very few treaty-based or multilateral universities whose status has been approved or vetted by the United Nations. However, it is important to note that despite the high degree of credibility consequent upon being an UN-recognized university established by intergovernmental treaty, this does not automatically provide degree accreditation under national laws. EUCLID has this status through its registration (headquarters agreement) in the Central African Republic (and The Gambia). Whenever needed, the permanent delegation of the Central African Republic to UNESCO has sent diplomatic notes to other permanent delegations to facilitate recognition and validation processes if such were needed. For instance, this was done successfully with Kenya in 2016.
EUCLID was listed in the top 50 institutions in a major textbook published by Springer in 2016: http://globalhealth.euclid.int/euclid-listed-in-springer-top-50-global-health-programs/
EUCLID MBASD program was ranked number one of the world’s 17 best in 2016 (still current): https://www.bestcollegereviews.org/top/online-mba-sustainability-programs/.
Many current and past EUCLID students, many of whom are senior government officials in their respective governments or international organizations, have sent letters of appreciation that are kept on file. We are currently updating our alumni reference page, which is found here: http://www.euclid.int/alumni.asp
