Accreditations are so important not just for an educational institution but also for students and employers. As Accreditations provide a proof of an educational program’s authentication, quality and standards.
Accredited programs attract more students
Students only trust degree programs that are accredited globally.
Graduates of accredited degree programs are hired by employers.
To mark York St John’s accreditation as a Chartered Management Institute (CMI) Centre, the Business School held a CMI Centre launch event on Wednesday 17 June 2015.
The partnership between the CMI and York St John Business School starts with a cohort of York St John employees beginning their Level 5 Certificate in Management and Leadership Qualification in September 2015.
This also means current and future undergraduate and MBA students will be able to have the opportunity to gain professional accreditation from the CMI alongside their degree.
The evening included a welcome from Head of Department, David Norris and presentations from CMI members Keith Richardson, Head of Higher Education Partnerships, Brian Wilkinson, Relationship Manager, Higher Education, Sharyn Coleman, Regional Board Chair and David Broadhead, CMI Ambassador.
Noel Dennis, Associate Dean of York St John Business School said:
“This event was a celebration of our relationship with the CMI, which will provide great opportunities for our students and the wider business community. It provided an insight into membership of the professional institution and allowed current CMI members to share their expertise with students and staff alike.”
Brian Wilkinson, Relationship Manager for the CMI added:
“The CMI are delighted to be entering into a strategic partnership with York St John University. We have a clear vision of enabling better led and managed organisations and working in collaboration with the University will fuel this ambition. As the partnership develops I am certain the University, its students and academics, as well as the local business community will benefit through our joint activities.”
