The GAFM International Board of Standards is the leading and first certification body in the world to offer certification eligibility to students and faculty of double-accredited business school.
Reacting to this achievement, Dr. Jallow said: “It is an honour to add such a well-meaning feat in my academic and knowledge bank. It took me a lot of hard work, dedication, and sleepless nights of studying, research and writing with endless sacrifices on my social activities to get where I am today. I once read somewhere that ‘excellence is not measured by perception. Instead, it is an unyielding passion once engraved in our yearnings to achieve greater heights, which allows one to soar above all obstacles life may throw in one’s direction”.
