"I earned my MBA from an India university and I needed to have it evaluated. I considered ECE, WES and IERF. I checked a lot of colleges website and found that ECE was almost always among the list of recommended evaluators. I selected ECE because the evaluation cost was affordable and the process was less complicated than other evaluators. My evaluation took about 3 weeks to be completed, maybe would have been sooner, but they had to get further verification from my university. Once this was done, my report was completed in a week. I am very satisfied with ECE. My evaluation report stated that I had the equivalent of a bachelor's and master's in business administration from a regionally accredited institution in the United States. By the way, their customer service team is very responsive both via email and telephone. I highly recommend ECE without reservation. A+++++"
