Professional Designations

The Certified in Management (C.I.M.) designation is attained by completing the 8-course Chartered Management Program (CMP) or equivalent, supplemented with 24 months of management or administrative experience, or completion of the Management Aptitude Evaluation (MAE) for graduates of NCMA Nationally Accredited Programs.

The Chartered Manager (C.Mgr.) designation is for those with an undergraduate or graduate degree in management, supplemented with 48 months of professional-level management experience and a Management Aptitude Evaluation (MAE).  For holders of non-management undergraduate or graduate degrees, C.Mgr. can be obtained by completing the 8-course Chartered Management Program (CMP) or equivalent.

Holders of these prestigious designations support the ongoing development of the management profession by subscribing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and abiding by the Institute Code of Ethics.
