BBB (Better Business Bureau)
The mission of the Better Business Bureau is the advance marketplace trust. This is accomplished through a number of different actions. First, the BBB sets standards for trust and encourages businesses to adopt them. It engages with businesses and educates consumers to ensure that best practices are well-known and followed. The BBB celebrates marketplace role models and addresses substandard business behavior to create a community of trustworthiness.
The New York Institute of Art and Design has been accredited by the Better Business Bureau of Metro New York since 2015. The BBB reviewed NYIAD's advertising and student servicing and has certified that we meet or exceed their list of best practices, meaning students can feel confident that NYIAD lives up to the promises made to new students.
All of our online courses offer certification of completion from the New York Institute of Art and Design.
