CMI and Anglia Ruskin team up to boost business graduates


Those choosing to study Business Management at Anglia Ruskin University will be stepping out of university with a huge career boost as the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) has teamed up with the university to strengthen the course.

This new partnership will give those individuals on the BSc Business Management and Leadership, BSc (Hons) Business Management and the MBA at Anglia Ruskin a huge career advantage, providing them with the stepping stone needed to secure a successful career in the sector.

Delivering ‘value-added professional qualifications’

While the facilities and support provided by Anglia Ruskin’s Lord Ashcroft International Business School will prove to be second to none, the new partnership with CMI will mean that students will benefit from professional recognition, while having unprecedented access to the exclusive CMI learning resources that are available.

Head of Operations and Administration at the Business School, Dr Phillipa Towlson, commented that as a university they are “delighted” to be working alongside CMI to “deliver these value-added professional qualifications” for both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

She added that the professional qualifications in management and leadership will support each graduate in securing a “high quality graduate job” in a competitive job market.

Graduates earning above the national average

Towlson noted that Anglia Ruskin graduates currently earn an average of £10,000 above the national average and these new qualifications will give them the opportunity to enhance their career prospects.

Ann Francke, Chief Executive of CIM, commented that they are “looking forward” to working alongside graduates from the university and providing them with the information and qualifications needed to produce “more practical managers” in the sector.

“Together, we’ll introduce some exceptional individuals to the next stage of their career development,” she added.
