At Merit, as a CMI center, we build the next generation of managers and leaders.
Picture a world where people can follow their vocation…
A world where individuals and organizations can fulfil their ambitions through a cutting-edge service that provides them knowledge, confidence, and new opportunities…
That’s my personal dream, and that’s why in 2006 I created IMC M.E., a leading training and management consultancy firm that, years later, has become the backbone of what “Merit” is today.
In just a few years, we partnered and collaborated with a stream of the most renowned training institutions all throughout the Middle East and the rest of the world.
In 2007, we were the only consultancy firm from the Middle East to be granted the prestigious “Recognized Practice” and “Premier Practice” status from the UK Institute of Management Consultancy for our excellent level of knowledge and professionalism.
The following year, our hard work and contribution towards the development of advanced learning skills granted us the “Most Outstanding Centre” Award in London, and we were the only center in the world to be entrusted by the UK’s Chartered Management Institute (CMI) to teach their Level 7 postgraduate diplomas in Management and Leadership in a language other than English.
We can proudly say that the development and growth of individuals is at the heart of everything we do, and that’s why in 2010 the University of Durham, one of the most acclaimed international institutions in the world, ranked our level 7 Diploma as “high-quality” training.
Thanks to this, many of our students will continue their studies with a master’s degree at the forefront of their field.
With the sole ambition of empowering communities, organizations, and people alike, at IMC we rapidly extended our network all over the world and, in 2010, we were the only center outside of the United Kingdom to be awarded the status of “Chartered Manager Integration Centre” by the CMI.
Personally, I was one of the two individuals out of the UK to be allowed the distinguished position to assess the applicants for the “Chartered Manager” (CMgr) status, one of the most competitive and desirable professions in the country as well as the ultimate accolade for any professional manager.
But our success is not just professional. From a financial standpoint, our sales in 2008 and 2009 went beyond our expectations, as we sold more than 5,200 training days in Muscat and Abu Dhabi alone.
Despite our history and track record, in 2012 the global financial crisis forced us to stop our services at IMC and take a step back…
… But this was just a momentary pause because everything that we developed and achieved at IMC is now at the foundation and heart of Merit – a world-class program brought to you by our experience and expertise, with an improved and state-of-the-art business model.
At Merit, we still have the same objective: providing to individuals and organizations the opportunity to seize their dreams.
At Merit, as CMI CENTER, we build the next generation of managers and leaders.
