Dutch businessmen are among the names on a list of people who have bought false university degrees from America, according to Tuesday’s AD, quoting documents obtained from the public prosecution department in the state of Washington.
The paper says the list contains the names of nine Dutch people, including several top managers. All those listed have denied any involvement, says the paper.
The AD says the Dutch buyers spent around €10,000 on their degrees, most of which were a masters in business administration (MBA).
False degrees are big business in America. The eight Americans involved in this degree fraud sold a total of 11,000 degrees worldwide at a cost of €7.4m, the paper says.
