About us

About us

We’re the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence. We encompass a membership community more than 100,000 strong. Because management matters to you, it matters to us.

We are a UK awarding body for management and leadership qualifications, and the only body that awards Chartered Manager, the hallmark of any professional manager. We literally set the standards that others must follow.

If you’re a manager, then that means that when you join the CMI you’re making a statement about your standards and determination to continue to develop your management skills.

If you’re an employer, then that means that your organisation will be able to draw on our experience of helping to get the best out of managers.

Helping managers achieve our qualifications and assessing training needs is just a small part of our offer to employers. Find out more about how we help employers.

And with this powerful mandate from the management community you can be sure that your voice will be heard at top tables in government, education and business. When we speak, they listen.
