SFU’s Beedie School of Business partners with Canadian Association of Management ConsultantsMar 10, 2015
MBA students at Simon Fraser University’s Beedie School of Business can now fast track their way to a career in management consultancy thanks to a new partnership with the Canadian Association of Management Consultants (CMC-Canada).
The partnership will allow students and recent alumni of the Beedie Full-time, Part-time, Executive, and Management of Technology MBA programs to count certain classes within the programs towards the 3600 hours of consulting experience required to qualify for the prestigious Certified Management Consultant (CMC) designation.
“Partnering with CMC-Canada further underscores the Beedie School of Business’ commitment to securing top industry connections to benefit our students,” says Dr. Blaize Horner Reich, Dean of the Beedie School of Business.
“The Beedie School is committed to producing well-rounded professionals, and we are delighted to be able to offer our MBA program graduates an expedited route to a career in management consultancy.
The agreement – which sees the Beedie School of Business become an official academic partner of CMC-Canada – will offer Beedie students discounted CMC-Canada membership rates.
It will also strengthen the School’s relationship with the local CMC-Canada Institute, providing students with access to experienced management consultants for career panels and mentorship.
“The CMC designation is the management consulting profession’s only international certification mark and is recognized in over 40 countries,” says Jac van Beek, Chief Executive Officer of CMC-Canada.
“We are delighted to be working with SFU’s Beedie School of Business to offer this new path to our designation for all their MBA students.”
