M Square Media (MSM) achieved yet another milestone as the company was granted certification by the American International Recruitment Council (AIRC) for 2022 through 2027.
AIRC was established in 2008 as a non-profit membership association of accredited U.S. post-secondary institutions and student recruitment agencies that work together towards quality standards for international student placement within the United States.
The organization is recognized by the US Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission as a Standards Development Organization and is known for promoting ethical standard-based international recruitment strategies.
As an AIRC-certified organization, MSM has earned a seal of approval from various U.S. institutions and professional organizations for its proven excellence in student recruitment and education management. This certification will also serve as a ticket for professional partnerships in the international education industry in the States.
In addition, MSM will have access to professional development and training and a voice in a rapidly growing community involved in overseas student recruitment and aspects of the AIRC certification process.
MSM has undergone a rigorous process to meet the AIRC Certification Standards. The eligibility for AIRC certification includes a minimum of two years of experience in the business, a successful placement record of at least 50 students, no blatant AIRC Standards violation, and no conviction of fraud in the last seven years.
AIRC Certification has to ensure that MSM meets the AIRC Certification Standards to affirm its quality of service. “It was a meticulous process. It included verifying eligibility rules for years in business, numbers of students placed, no fraudulent activity as verified by a high-level background screening report, and verified documentation that the 40 AIRC Standards are met by MSM,” MSM President Suneetha Qureshi said. “Thankfully, MSM was able to meet all the requirements for the certification,” she added.
