The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) is a professional organisation dedicated to management and leadership development. Since 1947, CMI has been collaborating with a range of sectors to help individuals become better managers and leaders.
The organisation was originally formed to help rebuild British industry following the Second World War and the institute has pursued that same goal since that time: to raise the quality of management in the workplace.
CMI awarded the UK’s first ever diploma in management studies and the organisation remains at the forefront of management training and standards.
The CMI community has over 170,000 members, which enables access to events and networking opportunities to help people boost their career prospects and connect with other professionals across all industries and sectors.
In 2002, CMI was granted a Royal Charter and is the only chartered professional body that can award Chartered Manager status, the highest accolade for professional managers in the UK. The charter recognises the practice of management as a profession and recognises their members’ commitment to uphold professional standards.
CMI has a long and respected history, and the institute continues to improve the quality and standard of management in the workplace. The institute prides itself on its expertise and its solid code of ethics, which is respected and acknowledged around the world.
Why get certified?
Certifications authenticate your knowledge and make it easier to build on your career with a globally recognised qualification. CMI qualifications are not only proven to improve performance, but they also provide a clear pathway for progression towards Chartered Manager, the ultimate Management and Leadership achievement.
In 2002, Her Majesty’s Privy Council granted the CMI Royal Charter, meaning that the CMI is the only organisation able to award Chartered Manager status, the highest accolade for managers and leaders.
CMI research* shows that businesses who invest in management and leadership development can see around a 23% increase in organisational performance and a 32% increase in people performance. Chartered Managers, an award only granted via CMI, can achieve an increase in revenue of around £310k over five years, on average.
Aside from having a globally recognised qualification, you will also enjoy CMI membership, which supports you throughout your career. Benefits include:
