Are you at a crossroads in your career? Feel ready for the next step, but haven’t been successful at securing a management position? A Chartered Management Insititute (CMI) qualification may be the answer!

Currently working as a marketing executive, I decided to take on a CMI qualification to prepare myself for a management position. Studying for this course is helping me grow and learn every week, and I feel much more confident in my future career as a marketer. I know that a career as a marketing leader now isn’t so far away!

But, why is taking a CMI qualification such a good choice? I’m here to tell you…

Advance within your career

It is no secret that a combination of experience and qualifications enhances your career and helps you get the promotions you want. With the amount of talent out there, sometimes you just need that edge over your competition. With a CMI under my belt, a senior role should only be on the horizon. Even if you have years of experience, companies often now look for a prestigious chartered award when interviewing candidates. Give yourself an advantage by considering completing a CMI qualification.

It is a great way to learn and apply

You may be sitting there thinking: ‘’How can I unlock a career in management?’’. I understand that feeling. A CMI qualification allows you to think more like a manager and what an organisation needs to be successful. You will be able to learn finance skills, managing a team, planning, developing strategy, and more! The CMI allows you to think and act like a leader, which you can apply to your career.

It offers a lot of flexibility

Whilst taking on continued personal development is great, it can be difficult to find the time to fit it in around your existing commitments. There is your job, family, cooking tea, and also remembering just to sit down and relax! With a CMI course, you don’t need to worry about balancing commitments, as the learning model is incredibly flexible. They also offer a range of courses to choose from depending on where you are in your career and what skills you are looking to obtain.
