Mandate and History

Our mandate is to provide you with a home

Founded in 2013 as part the “Breaktrhrough Strategy” by the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI), the CMC-Global Institute (CMC-GI) has a distinct mission: to extend support to management consultants located in regions without a national consulting institute.

Often referred to as the “white” spaces on the global map, these areas contrast with the “yellow” spaces where national consulting institutes affiliated with ICMCI already exist.

CMC-GI’s role is critical in bridging this gap, offering professional development, certification, and community to consultants in these underserved areas, thereby enhancing the global reach and impact of management consulting.
