The IMCA is the professional institute for management consultants and business advisers in Ireland. Our members cover the spectrum of practices – from major international to individual specialist practices – and embrace a wide range of sectors and expertise.
Our principal objective is to advance the professions of management consultancy and business advice in Ireland by establishing and maintaining the highest standards of performance and conduct by our members, and by promoting the knowledge and skills required for that purpose.
Membership is open to individual management consultants and business advisers, and embraces those with major international practices, specialist sole practitioners and those working in State Agencies.
Management consultancy entails the provision of objective advice and assistance relating to the strategy, structure, systems, management and operations of an organisation in pursuit of its long-term purposes and objectives. This may include the identification of options with recommendations, the provision of additional resources and / or the implementation of solutions.
In summary a consultant provides external advice for organisations that require specialist expertise or an objective outside perspective on their business.
This section sets out the application process and procedures for three categories of member recognised by IMCA – individual members, practice members and graduate members.
