Chartered Management Institute accreditation

Get more from your degree

Our BA (Hons) Business Studies, BA (Hons) Global Business Management (online) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) courses are dual accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence.

When you graduate, you’ll receive a CMI leadership and management qualification in addition to your Bachelor’s degree or a Level 7 Strategic Management and Leadership if you're studying the MBA. The qualification, which recognises key skills for middle managers, is considered a benchmark on the way to achieving Chartered Manager status

Your CMI dual accreditation enhances your learning experience and improves your employability in a number of ways. This includes complimentary CMI student membership as you work towards your degree – providing a range of networking and professional development opportunities.

As part of your membership, you’ll benefit from: 

  • CMI’s online portal, ManagementDirect – featuring thousands of resources to support your learning
  • A range of tools, information and advice in the Career Development Centre
  • Mentoring support from experienced industry experts.

You’ll have the opportunity to be recognised for academic and personal achievements through annual awards, and can take advantage of access to Institute’s local and national business partner network. Its leadership publications will also help you keep up-to-date on the latest trends in management.

You can find out more about the benefits of membership below and on the CMI website.
