CMI Qualifications

CMIOxford Strategic Consulting is a strategic partner of the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) which is the only management and leadership awarding body recognised with a Royal Charter from Queen Elizabeth II, one of the most prestigious honours a company can receive.

Over 100,000 Professional Managers trust CMI as the leading authority on management and leadership across the world, and it is recognised as the international gold standard of management and leadership qualifications. CMI qualifications and courses include over 110 individual qualifications and 300+ flexible modules. Oxford will help you configure the right qualifications for your people, using UK government certified programme units from CMI and other awarding bodies.

With our flexible, modular approach, we offer qualifications relevant to the professional level of your learners. Our qualifications comply with the globally recognised European credit system, giving a flexible way to earn credits recognised by employers and academic institutions across the world.

Common qualification levels are:

  • Level 7 – Master’s degree level, most suitable for senior management
  • Level 5 –  First-year Bachelor’s degree level – most suitable for middle management
  • Level 3 – College level – most suitable for junior or new managers

We offer Diploma, Certificate and Award at each of these levels – and lots more as well, for example:

  • Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management
  • Level 5 Certificate in People Management
  • Level 5 Certificate in Organisational Mentoring (granting Qualified Mentor status)
  • Level 3 Certificate in Personal Mentoring
  • Level 3 Certificate in Training


Accreditation is not always necessary, and it does come with additional cost. We offer all our programmes without accreditation, and we can have custom programmes endorsed by CMI for additional international quality assurance. In addition, all our learners are eligible for membership of CMI at either Associate, Full Member or Fellow level according to their seniority and experience. We can also take experienced managers through Chartered Manager selection – the international badge of the most skilled managers.

Whether you choose accredited or non-accredited routes for your learners, we provides a structured, flexible and continuous development route for your learners. We integrate closely with professional career ladders, giving managers a clear development path and an internationally recognised way to evidence their skill and career progression. In this way, we support organisations and individuals to realise their human potential and reward their internal learners through training and assessment towards these units and qualifications.
