Membership is open to those who complete the relevant degree level qualifying examinations.
The Institute is also a recognised international examining and awarding body for students undertaking general business and management studies and examines and certifies candidates to an internationally consistent standard.
The Institute of Commercial Management benefits from full recognition by the regulators of external qualifications in England – the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual).
Established as a result of a decision by the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families in September 2007 to set up a new independent regulator of qualifications and tests, Ofqual was created as an interim regulator within the existing legal framework.
It began work in April 2008, with responsibility for carrying out the regulatory functions of the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA). Legislation formally establishing Ofqual as a separate statutory organisation, reporting directly to Parliament, is expected to be in force from late 2009.
Until this time, QCA’s Board retains legal responsibility for the discharge of its regulatory functions and the exercise of those powers.

Testing methods adopting regular submission of projects or assignments and integrated case study examinations. These programs apart from fulfilling the necessary academic obligations also helps these students take on the additional responsibility that comes with studying and working in an International environment.
