Wanting to learn more about the CMM program? Here your chance to connect with Indiana University faculty and staff, as well as recent CMM graduates!
Earning your Certificate in Meeting Management (CMM) shows the world that you are a strategic thinker ready to assume a leadership role in this industry. This intensive, three-phased executive education program packs the highlights of a world-class graduate degree program into four days, followed by eight hours of advanced-level online coursework and a final project focused on solving the real-world, work-based problem.
Taught by Indiana University faculty, the entire program takes 15 weeks to complete. Upon successful completion of the coursework, attendees earn 48 clock hours and 4.8 CEUs. They will also have the opportunity to earn three graduate credit hours, which can be applied to the Indiana University Kelley School’s Executive Degree Program (EDP) Business Management Certificate.
CMM designees have stated that participating in the program gained them a seat at the executive table, secured a promotion or earned them a raise. According to a recent MPI member survey, the average salary of a meeting professional with a CMM is roughly $20k/year more than members with a CMP and nearly $30k/year more than members with no credentials. Therefore, whether someone is looking to sharpen their leadership skills or take their career to the next level, the CMM program will guide them in their quest for excellence!
Aside from the experience-based program requirements, there are no other prerequisites to apply and more importantly, once you have earned your CMM, you may use the designation indefinitely as there is no renewal requirement. To provide the greatest learning and networking opportunities, class sizes for the CMM program are kept to a maximum of 50 candidates.
