Academic Fellows of CMC-Global are professors (also assistant/associate/adjunct professors) whose research and/or teaching of internal or external management consulting at a publically accredited university is deemed by peer reviews to be of a particularly worthy level of excellence. The ICMCI Academic Fellow designation is intended to be a mark of distinction which recognises academic practitioners from around the world who have contributed to the study and teaching of management consultancy. It will awarded by ICMCI to suitably qualified individuals based upon the recommendation of the local IMC.

This outreach initiative by CMC-Global and its country Institutes of Management Consulting is designed to build a closer link between Academia and the professional body, enhance exposure of the CMC designation to students, and to develop the intellectual capital of the global CMC community. Additional benefits to the CMC community include:

  • Increased awareness and profile for CMC at the Fellow’s educational institution.
  • Increased membership in IMC’s through the potential development of management consulting streams within MBA or related Masters programs
  • Pragmatic contributions to debates within IMC on academic matters, including annual conferences
  • The attraction and engagement of a new stakeholder group that will add valuable new perspectives and insights within IMC management consulting community. There will be the expectation that the Fellow will demonstrate tangible on-going involvement with the management consulting profession.

Benefits to the Academic fellows include:

  • Enhanced academic and professional profile arising from the appointment along with international peer recognition.
  • Invitations to international conferences and hub meetings with the opportunity to showcase applied research and publications.
  • Opportunity to publish articles in CMC Today, the bimonthly global newsletter of CMC-Global
  • Support for appropriate international research projects within the management consulting field.
  • Support for major student projects through CMC client introductions or directly for CMC practitioners.

The Appointment Process

  1. Identifying Suitable Candidates by IMC’s
    We expect that country IMC’s will consult with colleagues within their own IMC organization to scan the academic landscape for suitable candidates – please note that this is a preliminary step and that potential candidates should not be contacted at this stage.

    In providing IMC nomination, the following eligibility criteria will apply:

    • The candidate must hold a position at a recognised academic institution, specifically a publically accredited university within your country.
    • The candidate must be engaged in research and/or teaching within the external or internal management consulting field for a minimum of five years.
    • The candidate can also be a practicing CMC who has held a part time teaching position at a recognized publically accredited university within your country. Such a teaching appointment would be on an adjunct, instructor or associate faculty basis with such a position held for a minimum of five years.
  1. Submitting IMC Nomination(s)
    Once suitable candidates have been identified, please notify Reema Nasser with a copy to Simon Haslam CMC who is coordinating this process as the Chair of the AF Panel. You should submit the following information with your nomination:
    • The candidate name; their full time position, and their academic institution.
    • Their academic track record, such as undergraduate/graduate classes taught; published academic papers; conference presentations; curriculum development (both academic and for commercial courses); management consulting engagements/retainers; related industry seminars.
    • Sources of on-line information that is available about the candidate, such as their individual website or LinkedIn address. Their professional email address would also be appreciated.
    • Your assessment of the candidate’s demonstrated involvement with the management consulting profession and how they might contribute through their Fellowship.

    The aim of your submission should be to show how the candidate’s track record demonstrates a tangible engagement with the management consulting profession.

  1. Selection Process
    Nominations together with the supporting information will then be forwarded to the ICMCI– Fellowship Panel who will assess the suitability of the candidate for ICMCI Academic Fellow.
    1. The decision will usually be one of provisional approval, rejection, or possibly deferment if the candidate is considered to have insufficient experience at present.
    2. If the candidate is provisionally approved, by the panel and then Board, the nominating IMC will be notified. They should then contact the nominated candidate to ascertain their potential acceptance pending final approval by Borad. A copy of the suggested communication to the candidate is detailed in Appendix 2.
    3. The IMC should then inform the ICMCI Secretariat whether the candidate has accepted the award.
    4. On being so informed, confirmation of the award is provided by the Fellowship panel (via ICMCI Board) and advised to the IMC who, in turn, advises the successful candidate with a suitable certificate/letter and concurrent press release. The appointment term will be for five years with the potential for further renewal.
