ABSTRACT
In this article, the author presents a supporting statement concerning the Education and Training Committee's efforts to look at the format of examinations of Great Britain-based Institute of Management Sciences (IMS), from the points of view of structure, procedure and content. The Education and Training Committee, together with a newly created sister committee, the Technical Board, has been attached to a new Technical Services Committee which oversees both. Through this article, the author solicits views of providers, students, and students employers to help them ensure that what they are doing is relevant to today's needs. The author has considered the idea of an alternative route to obtaining the certificate based more widely on body of knowledge and in line with the IMS. The author takes this opportunity to remind the people of the IMS Student of the Year Award, which is open to all students studying in Great Britain and the Overseas Student of the Year Award for students studying outside Great Britain.
