Competition in the business education accreditation market picks up, with Deakin U announcing a deal with the Institute of Management and Leaders ANZ (the Australian Institute of Management as was). The university will “embed” chartered manager designation in its MBA and MBA healthcare management programmes. Graduates will also get a level seven diploma in strategic management and leadership from the UK Chartered Management Institute.
According to the IML, “chartered manager,” is “the highest status that can be achieved as a manager and leader,” it offers “the professional qualification” through its partnership with the CMI.
Last year Griffith U MBA graduates were given chartered manager status, extended last month to Griffith M Bus grads, in an arrangement with IML (CMM February 12).
