IMC and Oregon's Willamette University's Atkinson Graduate School of Management recently partnered to present IMC's Certificate in Management Consulting program. The weeklong certificate program was taught by Oregon CMCs Geoff Guilfoy CMC®, Kathie Nelson CMC®, Jo Smith CMC®, Kathy Cuhna CMC® and Ken Hill CMC®.

Willamette University is the second university to offer IMC's Certificate in Management Consulting program. The success of the program has convinced officials at Willamette University to offer the program again this fall.

Melinda Rogers, Director of Willamette University's Executive Development Center said: "Willamette University is delighted to have the opportunity to partner with IMC to offer the Certificate in Management Consulting program. Many of the graduate students in our MBA program have a keen interest in learning more about the field of consulting. In addition, we have had a high level of interest from the international community wanting to study management consulting at a respected United States university."

In addition to being attractive to students, Willamette University's program also attracted practicing consultants. Since the barriers to entry into the consulting profession are low, many people begin their management consulting practices with little or no formal training. One practicing management consultant who attended Willamette University's program put it this way: "I am here because I don't know what I don't know."

The IMC Certificate in Management Consulting program's centerpiece is its Consulting Competency Framework, which teaches consultants the environment of consulting, the practice of consulting, the skills of consulting and the ethics of consulting. No other consulting training program is this extensive or this comprehensive.

IMC is currently in discussions with several other universities across the country that are interested in offering the program. IMC's goal is to make the Consulting Competency Framework and the CMC the gold standard for all practicing management consultants.
