CMC-GI Membership
If you would like to apply for membership into CMC-GI, you must have at least three years in the management consulting field/business, a degree or professional qualifications or five years of full-time management consulting work, an appreciation for the field of consulting, and willing to provide services with complete objectivity and independence. If you would like to apply for a student membership, you must be a current student in good standing at an accredited institution. All members must abide by the CMC-GI Code of Conduct.

Membership Types
Choose the membership type that fits your needs: student member, affiliate member, member, and certified member.  

§  A student member is offered to a full-time college or university student studying at an accredited institution who is interested in management consulting and supports the objectives of the Global Institute. Student members may continue at this level, providing they continue to be a student in good standing, or 12 months immediately following graduation, as long as they are not actively pursuing consulting clients. 

§  An affiliate member includes professionals who are frequent users of management consulting services and have a direct interest in advancing the professionalism of the field. This membership was developed for those who are not practicing management consultant personals who have not yet reached the professional membership criteria.

§    A member is any management consultant located in a country without a national IMC. Individuals in this category must be practicing management consultants and may intend to pursue the CMC designation, although this is not a requirement. They also must possess a degree from an accredited institution or professional qualifications and be an owner or employee of a firm in independent practice or internal consultant in an organization. 

§  A certified member is one who has earned the right to carry the Certified Management Consultant designation. They have completed all requirements:
