CMI Level 6 in Management and Leadership Practice

This qualification bridges the gap between level 5 and and level 7 qualifications. Managers with operational management experience find this useful to ease into strategic management and leadership. Although there are a smaller choice of units, there are some really interesting options. You can take some of these units as part of those other qualifications too.

CMI Level 7 in Strategic Management and Leadership

This is the CMI flagship senior management qualification and one of our most popular qualifications. Choose from a wide range of units to develop a strategic view of organisations. Level 7 is very 'strategy' focussed; managers often find this quite a different skill set to what they knew as an operational manager.
