University of Niagara Falls Canada earns national management accreditations

University of Niagara Falls Canada (UNF) is pleased to announce that two of its programs have earned national accreditation from a leading professional association.

UNF’s Master of Management (MM) and Honours Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) programs recently received professional accreditation from the National Committee for Management Accreditation (NCMA) through CIM | Chartered Managers Canada.

The accreditation was awarded following a comprehensive review by the association’s accreditation standards committee. It helps to highlight the excellent value of a degree from UNF to all Master of Management and BBA students and potential applicants.

This Professional Accreditation speaks to the position of the UNF as a leader in the field of business and management education.

Being enrolled in a professionally accredited program means MM and BBA students at UNF will be entitled to free associate membership with CIM | Chartered Managers Canada and will have access to association benefits, including exclusive member networking and events, as well as management and leadership resources such as mentoring. It is also a pathway for further professional designations.

“We are excited that UNF has been recognized with these professional accreditations. It is a testament to both applicants and our students of the practical and applied value of the programs we offer here,” said David Gray, UNF Provost and Vice-President, Academic. “Through their associate membership, our students will gain access to a vast professional network with a wealth of knowledge, support and mentorship that will help to advance their management career.”

Founded in 1942, CIM | Chartered Managers Canada is the leading professional association supporting Canada’s Chartered Managers through certification, accreditation, and professional development. It offers two internationally recognized professional designations – Certified in Management (CIM) and Chartered Manager (C.Mgr).

UNF students graduating with a Master of Management or BBA degree, who have registered as an associate member, will be able to receive their CIM designation by successfully passing the online Management Aptitude Evaluation (MAE) right after graduation.

The C. Mgr designation is the pinnacle of achievement in management, globally acknowledged for excellence in management and leadership. UNF graduates will be eligible for designation after 48 months of professional-level management experience and successful completion of the MAE.
