Your Journey, Our Approach

We are the sum of many parts and that’s what makes us different!


We took the professionalism, commercial pragmatism, and flexibility from the world of consultancy. From the world of academia, we took the intellectual rigour, the talent, the frameworks and best practice. We melded the two and adapted it to enhance your journey /experience and ensure that the results are visible to you. Through this unique approach, we have been able to deliver on our mission ‘to raise the standard of management in Ireland’ and pioneer the development of executive education in Ireland for the last sixty years. FT 2016 Ranking

Client Experience


liz“The IMI is a truly professional organisational providing innovative approaches to executive education through their Diplomas, Masters and bespoke education programmes. My personal experience and the experience of the Ervia Team has been second to none in dealing with the IMI and its team of professionals. Over the last three years, the IMI have worked alongside our Talent Team to deliver a suite of bespoke leadership development programmes to support us on our journey to building our leadership bench, develop successors for key roles and developing our key talent across the organisation.

The IMI have delivered a first class service, underpinned by strong governance along with a dedicated and highly experienced team including leadership development specialists, programme designers, programme administrators and client relationship managers. The IMI approach to delivering educational and development programmes is innovative, thoughtful in its approach and designed to make further education possible for leaders at all levels of one’s organisation. Without exception, the faculty are first class combining industry and academic experiences to deliver insightful and engaging programmes.


Key highlights for me in 2016 were the Talent Forums, National Leadership Conference and Ervia Senior Leadership Programme.”
