After passing a rigorous review process that examined course content and career progression of alumni after graduation, CIM | Chartered Managers Canada will now recognize the completion of 3 (1 + 2 model) undergraduate certificates from the McGill School of Continuing Studies as a valid prerequisite for the Chartered Manager (C.Mgr.) designation, the most prestigious status that can be achieved in the management profession.
Previously, candidates required a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree to apply. Now, students will be eligible if they complete McGill’s “Certificate in Management” as well as two additional McGill certificates, thus meeting the undergraduate credit requirements, from among the following:
- Accounting and Finance
- Applied Marketing
- Computers and Information Technology
- Health and Social Services Management
- Human Resources Management
- Public Relations and Communications Management
- Supply Chain Management and Logistics
The Chartered Manager (C.Mgr.) designation opens important career paths for adult learners as it offers access to a multitude of professional development and networking opportunities. Additionally, CIM has agreements in place with the UK Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the US Institute of Certified Professional Managers (ICPM) so that CIM Chartered Managers can also easily obtain the CMI Chartered Manager (C.Mgr.) and ICPM Certified Manager (CM) professional designations.
To earn the Chartered Manager (C.Mgr.) designation, after completing the Certificate in Management and two additional eligible certificates from the McGill School of Continuing Studies, a candidate must cover all applicable fees, as well as:
- Become a member of CIM | Chartered Managers Canada
- Have 48 months of professional-level management experience (achieved before or after graduation)
- Submit 3 professional references
- Complete the online Management Aptitude Evaluation (MAE)
Chartered Managers are required to maintain current membership in good standing with CIM | Chartered Managers Canada, abide by the Code of Ethics, and Professional Conduct, and commit to Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
