Formal qualifications are not required for entry to the CMS. You should however be able to demonstrate that you will benefit from undertaking the course. In view of the work-related nature of the CMS, you will need to have recent and relevant work experience.
Months of entry
A one year course, designed for practising managers or those aspiring to a management career, the CMS is an introductory, skill-based management qualification. Suitable for all business sectors, it introduces the main functional areas of management: Introduction to Leadership Practice; Management in Context; Introduction to Marketing; and an Introduction to Finance and Information.
You will be encouraged to reflect on your organisation and then apply your learning back in the workplace.
You can study the CMS as an individual qualification, and when you achieve the CMS, you may choose to pursue the Diploma in Management Studies (DMS), which feeds into the MBA programme.
