Management Consulting Certificate Program

MCCP Picture1

MCCP is a curriculum for graduate students in a Masters program – typically a Masters of Business Administration (MBA). This course is specifically designed for college students, not practicing consultants or professionals with work experience. Completion of this course does not confer a “certification;” it provides training on the fundamentals of consulting that is part of the education to qualify as a Certified Management Consultant®️ (CMC®️).

The mission of the Institute of Management Consultants USA (IMC USA) is to promote excellence and ethics in management consulting through certification, education, and professional resources. One of the avenues of meeting our mission is through joint programs with the academic world to offer non-degree and courses of study to their students based on the IMC USA Competency Framework and other management consulting programs.

To proactively capture new market opportunities, Universities, in partnership with the IMC USA, can offer the Management Consulting Certificate Program, which is an executive development program to provide professionals with the fundamental and proven professional framework for the practice of management consulting.

Management consultants typically have a wider set of skills, abilities, and experience than consultants in one single area of expertise, and are able to provide more value to the client. This makes a Certificate in Management Consulting very attractive to current executives wanting to improve their overall consulting acumen; to executives in transition wanting to start a consulting career; to MBA students wishing to explore or pursue a management consulting career; in summary, it offers the University a new channel for its academic mission with a strong link to market realities.

Take a leading position in the marketplace by adding the Management Consulting Certificate Program to your curriculum.
