National Committee for Management Accreditation

What is NCMA Professional Accreditation?  

Professional Accreditation is open to programs in recognized Canadian and international academic institutions governed by their respective higher education ministries, quality assurance agencies or accrediting bodies.

Accreditation recognizes business administration, commerce and management programs aligning to the academic requirements as established in the Chartered Management Program (CMP).

The CMP is a core requirement for the Certified in Management (C.I.M.) and Chartered Manager (C.Mgr.) professional designations.

Students enrolled in accredited programs are eligible for FREE ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP with the association.*

Associate Members enjoy all the benefits of membership, including access to the association’s multiple affinity programs which provides a great way for students to belong to a professional association during their studies.

Students can participate in all the networking and professional development opportunities that the association offers, helping them get ready for their careers.  When they graduate, they can seamlessly pursue our well-recognized professional designations.

*Members holding a designation, even if enrolled in an accredited program, do not qualify for free associate membership.

If you would like your program accredited, or have any questions, please contact
