About Us

Management Consultants play a crucial role in the development of Australian organisations. By providing advice and assistance, consultants aid industry in determining and achieving their objectives.

The Institute of Management Consultants (IMC) is the professional body representing management consultants in Australia. The IMC's mission is to represent and promote the management consulting profession, set and maintain internationally recognised standards and develop members. Clients demand the utmost in professional competency and as a result seek out IMC management consultants. For this reason, upon joining the IMC, members agree to abide by our Code of Professional Conduct.


To maintain a high standard of professional competency, we provide regular professional development programs.

Our vision is for the IMC to be recognised by all as the leading organisation representing and servicing the management consulting profession. Members of the IMC participate in both National and Chapter activities.

The IMC has Chapters in:

  • New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory;
  • Queensland;
  • South Australia (incorporating the Northern Territory);
  • Victoria and Tasmania; and
  • Western Australia.

The IMC is the awarding body of the Certified Management Consultant (CMC) designation. CMC is the mark of competency for the management consulting profession and indicates that a management consultant meets certain requirements of character, education and experience. The CMC designation is recognised internationally. IMC members are part of an international network of professionals through the peak management consulting body - the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI). There are more than thirty member Institutes of the ICMCI and membership of the Australian IMC allows reciprocity of benefits with each member country without the need for further assessment or examination.
