The US President has appointed George Mentz, a Louisiana Lawyer, to the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars. Counselor Mentz has been one of the most prolific authors and professors in the last 20 years teaching and developing over 300 courses for colleges, law schools and accredited educational bodies.
Mentz is one of the first people in the USA to ever earn a Doctor of Jurisprudence (JD), an MBA, and an international law graduate certificate with various licenses in law and finance from FINRA/NASD.
Mentz is the author of over 50 success related books and audio books and is the winner of an IBA Book Award for Self Help. Mentz is a historian of human performance and metaphysics.
George Mentz was a pioneer in credentialing standards as the first education lawyer to negotiate legal deals with accreditation agencies and integrate and accept accredited business school exams and courses as a path to board certification and professional designations.
George Mentz is an economics analyst at Newsmax and has been a brain trust member and dream team member of various media expert teams including with the famous National Underwriter group. Mentz is also an adjunct Faculty for graduate LLM wealth management courses at Texas A&M Law School.
Mentz is the son of the late Judge Henry Mentz of the US Federal Courts in New Orleans and the late Ann Lamantia Mentz. Mentz has won several awards for teaching and charitable service, and is a proud Sicilian Hispanic with a European background and member of various ethnic & cultural societies.
Mentz is originally from Louisiana and an LSU classmate of Steve Scalise. Mentz has been a Colorado resident for over a decade. Further, Mentz had met the current US president when he was in New Orleans in 1988 at the Bush Convention and had been a fan ever since. Counselor Mentz graduated from law school after attending Loyola Law School in New Orleans and William & Mary Law School international law programs, and Mentz also holds an MBA from Loyola Business School along with a CILS Graduate Certificate in International Legal Studies. Mentz was chairman of the Tax & Estate Planning Law Review while in graduate school.
Mentz is the General Counsel of the Academy’s Board of Standards. Mentz said, “As an Education executive and e-learning pioneer, we have been integrating the highest certification standards from: business schools, online learning, and VIP Training programs for over 15 years.” We now also accredit MOOCs as a certification path. “We are active in over 40 countries working with great companies such as Informa Training and Events. Mentz’s companies accredit educational programs, training, and online programs to offer professional certifications. We are the first in the world to accept education and exams from: the greatest accreditation agencies in the world including over one thousand ACBSP and AACSB business schools worldwide.” These same principles can also be used for technical certification.
As Robert Frank wrote in the Wall Street Journal, the Academy’s Certifying Board of Standards requires courses which all include assessment to earn a certification or designation and author Jason Zweig quoted George Mentz’s double accreditation standards where courses are reuired in 2010 which were simultaneously noted in the Wall Street Journal designation guide and also in the FINRA guides. However, to be certified, if you already have a qualifying degree, you will not need to take further exams if you have already taken 20-30 exams in an accredited businessschool program. People who have earned a degree after completing various exams at an accredited university or business school may apply directly for Certification.
Mentz and his educational efforts have been seen in television, radio, press, podcasts and more in places like India, China, Europe, Latin America, South Asia, and more.
