MBA & Level 7 in Strategic Management and Leadership

When you complete your MBA at IUMW, you have the option to also receive the CMI Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership. This is because IUMW’s MBA programmes map directly to CMI modules, so you earn a globally recognised professional qualification as well as your postgraduate degree. Level 7 is developed for senior managers who have the responsibility to translate organisational strategy into effective performance. These skills give you a clear career differentiator on graduation and can therefore boost your employability.

Earn Chartered Manager Status (CMgr)

With the CMI L7 Diploma qualification plus at least three years of relevant work experience, you can apply to become a Chartered Manager via the Fast Track route, the most prestigious status available in the management profession.

In order to obtain Chartered Manager Status, you should apply to CMI directly and pay the requisite fee. See this CMI page for an overview of the different routes and details of how to contact the Chartered Manager team.

How You Benefit From CMI Dual Accreditation

By adding a CMI qualification to your University qualification, you differentiate yourself even further, importantly, setting yourself up for career success.

  • Two for one – While studying for your MBA you simultaneously earn your CMI qualification. In other words, you earn two qualifications by studying one programme.
  • Theory into practice – CMI qualifications are highly regarded by employers. This is because they demonstrate the practical skills needed to excel in the workplace.
  • The stamp of approval – CMI qualifications are linked to the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) and European Qualification Framework. As a result, you can be assured that the qualification you are taking is of the highest standard.

You can apply for the CMI Level 7 Qualification if you are currently studying one of the following IUMW programmes:
