Level 2 Certification

Get certified and become part of our resume book!

The Consultant certificate (Level 2) proves that users have the skills needed to apply the tools learned in Level 1. The tools learned may seem intuitive, but in reality, they are very difficult to master. Many hours of practice are required in order to achieve mastery of these concepts. Level 2 certification requires the candidate to apply the tools that he or she learned in a real project, for a real client. Candidates will start from defining the problem, developing an approach to solve it, obtaining data to draw conclusions, and effectively demonstrate the findings with a compelling presentation. By taking the Level 2 certification you will prove that you have the critical skills that every professional and consultant must have in order to be a world-class manager or management consultant.

In order to get certified, you must already have the Level 1 Analyst certification and submit a completed real project for a real customer. Please find a below a detailed list of the requisites:

  • Submitted by a team of up to six (6) individuals
    • With clearly defined leadership roles
    • Who are all eligible for Level Two Certification
  • Worked for a company or non-profit organization
  • Developed for a senior level sponsor at the organization who has a defined key issue
  • Submitted within twelve (12) months of taking the Level 1 Exam
  • Followed the MCI Honor Code of ethical behavior

Who should apply?

Level 2 certification is designed for individuals, either students or professionals, looking to improve their management skills and show that they not only know the theory, but that they have developed the skills required to apply the theory. Level 2 certification benefits anyone who faces challenging issues at work, needs to structure problems and find solutions, makes decisions, and needs to present effectively to sell an idea. It will help professionals in areas like strategy, marketing, sales, and business development among other areas. Level 2 certification is also ideal for consultants that have not received formal training from top consulting firms (McKinsey, Arthur D. Little, Bain, Accenture, etc.).
