Qualifications Recognition Program Launch

We are delighted to launch the IAM Qualifications Recognition Program (QRP). This program recognizes academic asset management qualifications that offer asset management education to a level that is at least equivalent to either the IAM Certificate or Diploma. Students studying towards a recognized qualification will be awarded the appropriate IAM qualification on successfully completing the course. The launch comes after two successful pilots with universities in the Netherlands, Malaysia, and Canada.

The QRP is open to all academic institutions that offer asset management qualifications at the appropriate level. Recognized qualifications may be delivered through full-time study, part-time study, distance learning, or face-to-face teaching. Recognized qualifications may be delivered in any language and anywhere around the world. A course must meet the following criteria to become a recognized qualification:

  • The provider must be accredited by a local quality assurance agency for higher education, e.g., Quality Assurance Agency, Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
  • The provider must be a Corporate Member of the IAM.
  • Course material must cover all areas of the syllabus for the relevant IAM qualification.
  • Courses must include a method of assessing students’ knowledge and understanding. This may be an examination, portfolio submission, marked assignments, or a combination of methods.

Any course that covers asset management content equivalent to the IAM Certificate or Diploma can be recognized under the QRP, provided it meets the criteria listed above. It may be an undergraduate degree, a Masters degree, a short course on asset management, or any other course run by an academic institution.
