A Nigerian woman named Rev Dr Tina Beloveth Powerful, who runs a 'Havard University' from a flat in Milton Keynes, is being sued by American Havard University over trademark infringement. Dr Powerful's business school, founded in 2010, is called Havard School of Management and Technology and is being run from a city center flat in North Third Street in CMK.
The Milton Keynes Trading Standards department and the UK police are currently investigating Dr Powerful and the school. The MKTS department recently revealed that the UK Harvard school does not have accreditation for courses it claims to run.
The school claims to offer a number of higher education courses in business, computing, law, management, and Bible Studies and also claims the awarding body for its Diploma & Advanced Diploma in Administrative Management is The Institute of Administrative Management (IAM) but IAM has denied this, saying the school has not been accredited by them. And since it's s a privately-run school, it needs to be accredited or it will be in breach of trading standards.
Meanwhile Dr. Beloveth Powerful insists she has not done anything wrong, claiming she's on a “mission from God to help people study.”
“I have six degrees myself, two of them from Nigeria where I came from. I transformed my life and God has given me power to transform others. We are about to be accredited. We are in the process, making procedures, taking practical steps. Just because they haven't heard of me today, does not mean they won't hear of me tomorrow."
