At Sparsholt Business Training, we offer a range of Chartered Management Institute (CMI) courses. Thanks to our on-campus accommodation, we are also able to offer two residential courses too so students can concentrate on their learning away from work or home pressures.


What is CMI?

CMI are the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standard in management and leadership excellence. Over 100,000 managers use their services on a daily basis.

CMI started over 60 years ago as the British Institute of Management and developed the UK’s very first diploma in management studies. In the years that followed, they have been constantly at the forefront of all aspects of management training and thinking.


Why study for a CMI qualification?

CMI qualifications are ideal for managers and leaders at any level because they are highly valued by employers and provide a boost to your career prospects. Developing your management skills with CMI will help you make more confident decisions to achieve better results.
