International Certified Professional Manager (ICPM) James Madison University

Our Partners

The Institute of Certified Professional Managers (ICPM) was founded in 1974 by two trade associations focused on developing managers and leaders, the National Management Association (NMA) and the International Management Council (IMC).

ICPM was created to provide a formal program of management training to first line supervisors and to enhance recognition of management as a profession. A grant from the George R. Brown Foundation funded the Institute which originated at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas.

In 1977, ICPM moved to the National Management Association’s (NMA) headquarters in Dayton, Ohio. Several years later, at the bequest of ICPM board member and JMU management professor Lester Bittel, the Institute moved to Harrisonburg, Virginia where it resides today as a business center of the James Madison University College of Business (COB).
