Dublin Metropolitan University (DMU) is a privately owned company based


in Limassol, Cyprus that markets itself as a university. Desmond Fleming, vice-chancellor of the
company, claims to be 17th Baronet of Killan, a title that Burke's Peerage does not recognize.[1] An
Irish newspaper reported in March 2006 that Fleming had formerly been convicted of
embezzlement.[2]

Affiliation structure[edit]
As of February 2012 the Dublin Metropolitan University website said it was "a federation of colleges
and institutes which together constitute the university ... The colleges and institutes, within the DMU
system offer courses leading to degrees that are awarded by DMU ... Dublin Metropolitan University
does not itself own any teaching or research facilities as all teaching and research is organized by
the colleges and institutions associated with the university".[3] One of these affiliated institutions was
the small London-based Maritime Greenwich College, which told students in 2006 that Dublin
Metropolitan University would award their MBA degrees.

Honorary degrees[edit]
In May 2008 Desmond Fleming conferred an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Laws on Mohsin Ali
Khan, former prince of Hyderabad, for his contribution to the purpose of peace in South Asia. The
presentation was made at the Athenaeum Club, London.[4] The Burmese poet laureate Soe
Nyunt was awarded a PhD in Poetry and Composition from DMU.[5]

Accredited status[edit]
In January 2006 the Dublin Companies Registration Office in Dublin and the Department of
Education and Science were discussing whether this and similar companies could be de-
registered.[1] In August 2010 the Commission for Higher Education (CHE) in Kenya named Dublin
Metropolitan University as an institution offering allegedly dubious programs.
The commission said it was not accredited and "had not been granted authority by the CHE to
collaborate with any institution in Kenya to offer any university education".[6]
