MINNEAPOLIS -- January 28, 2013

Capella University, an accredited online university* that has built its
reputation by providing high-quality online degree programs for working
adults, has announced a new Management Consulting certificate  designed to
deliver the academic content necessary for Chartered Management Consultant^®
(ChMC) certification. The online certificate was developed in partnership with
the Chartered Institute of Management Consultants® (CIMC), an internationally
recognized professional association that developed and oversees ChMC
certification as a global management credential. Capella’s Management
Consulting certificate is the only CIMC-endorsed program that provides the
academic background for ChMC certification.

“We wanted to offer our members an all-inclusive program that would deliver
the academic background required for ChMC certification,” said Linda Bird,
administrator of CIMC. “We selected Capella as our partner because we wanted
an accredited institution with an excellent academic reputation, expertise in
online, post-graduate education, and strong business management programs that
reflect the current business climate. Capella’s new Management Consulting
certificate is designed for a business climate marked by accelerating change,
globalization, intensified competition, and compressed strategy life cycles.
We are confident this certificate will deliver the knowledge and expertise
management consultants need to provide outstanding results for their internal
and external clients.”

The post-bachelor’s certificate focuses on developing competencies associated
with the Common Body of Knowledge in Management Consulting. Students choose
five from the following courses: Leading Innovation in the Global
Organization, Financial Accounting, Finance and Value Creation, Data Analysis
for Business Decisions, Organizational Strategy, Entrepreneurial Strategy, and
Project Planning, Management, and Financial Control. Because of the
partnership between Capella and CIMC, members and staff of CIMC save 10
percent on all Capella courses, including the courses that comprise the
Management Consulting certificate. For students whose ultimate goal is an MBA,
up to 15 credits from the Management Consulting certificate may be transferred
into select Capella MBA specializations, saving students both time and money
over the cost of pursuing each program separately.
