Chartered Institute of Business Management PDF Print E-mail

The Chartered Institute of Business Management is not an examining body but recognises subjects passed or exempted from the CSSA curriculum. The major difference is that students will be entitled to apply for membership of the Chartered Institute of Business Management at various levels after passing a minimum of five CSSA modules or if exemptions are granted and apply the appropriate designatory title after their names.

Members of other professional bodies, university graduates or holders of National Diplomas can qualify to apply for a higher level of Chartered Institute of Business Management membership by studying for the CSSA programmes.

Graduates, Associates and Fellows of Chartered Secretaries Southern Africa may apply for dual membership of CSSA and Chartered Institute of Business Management at FCIBM level only.
