The Institute of Management Consultants (IMC USA) is the premier professional association and sole certifying body for management consultants in the United States. IMC USA exists to provide a community platform for ethically grounded consultants who work with management to build their practices, so they can deliver transformative value for their clients. IMC USA promotes excellence and ethics in management consulting through certification, education and professional resources.
Founded in 1968, the non-profit Institute awards the designation of Certified Management Consultant (CMC®) to those consultants who demonstrate broad competences in technical and consulting skills and behaviors, repeated client satisfaction, and written and oral ethics examinations.
IMC members adhere to a rigorous Code of Ethics and enforcement procedures. Certified Members must renew their certification every three years. IMC USA is a member of the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI), which sets global standards for technical competence and professional conduct among professional consultants in its 46 member countries.
