The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) are to be appointed to provide the School of Management with dual accreditation of its undergraduate and postgraduate programme. Only CMI can provide this service for the following technical reasons:

1. Dual accreditation for students will enable them to receive the appropriate CMI qualification in conjunction with their University qualification whilst enabling them access to a wide range of resources to support their academic and personal development.

2. CMI accredit relevant Business and Management and other courses with management content such that all registered students can achieve a CMI professional qualification whilst studying their university degree programme.

3. Students' membership will remain active for the duration of their individual course.

4. CMI accreditation and membership will also support student employability by differentiation through business readiness. The CMI qualifications will allow our students to demonstrate they understand the theory and have the practical application of that knowledge. 75 % of employers suggest more students should seek professional qualifications.

5. Additional benefits provide only by CMI include:

A. CMI's ManagementDirect

A staple benefit of CMI membership includes full access to ManagementDirect, the CMI's market-leading online support tool for managers and leaders.

Access to CMI's ManagementDirect programme provides students with access to thousands of e-books, articles, handy check-lists, videos, models any time, anywhere and automatically logs the students learning to their online CPD record.

In addition, students will be eligible for the following:

- Book loans (CMI operate a postal book loan service from hard copy library - the largest of its kind on management and leadership in Europe);

- ‘Ask a researcher’ phone and email query-resolution service;

- Networking and events, including access to CMI's 22 000 strong Women in Management network;

- Mentoring scheme: opportunities to be mentored;

- Membership Matters e-newsletter;

- Professional Manager magazine.

B. Curriculum Enrichment also provides a range of options at no additional cost, including guest lectures, mentoring, and employability Q&A's and much more. Of all accrediting bodies only the CMI has developed a programme designed to support a university in enhancing the student experience and supporting the development of their employability and skills.
