Management Consultants

Many of JEMCO’s employees have the titles of Management Consultant or Master Management Consultant, certifications given by the All-Japan Federation of Management Organization, which is a member of the International Council of Management Consulting Institute. The membership allows certified Japanese consultants to acquire the title of Certified Management Consultant given by the ICMC at the same time.

Management Consultant Certification

This is Japan’s only certification system for business consultants created on the initiative of the then-Ministry of International Trade and Industry. The system is aimed at certifying professional management consultants by an internationally recognized standard and screening procedure that put importance on both quality and quantity of applicants’ achievement.

This system is also applicable to professional management consultants in Japan and Asia who are not members of the All-Japan Federation of Management Organization.

The certification enables management consultants to establish their position in the business world and provides clients a clear standard to select consultants, helping health development of Japanese businesses as well as providing opportunity for Japanese consultants to work in an international arena. JEMCO Chairman Ryo Satoh serves as the chair of the All-Japan Federation of Management Organization’s certification screening panel.


The All-Japan Federation of Management Organization was established in 1949 with an aim of promoting management as science and making major contribution to the sound development of the Japanese economy as well as the international community. It is the only organization of management groups administered by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. JEMCO President Aoi Satoh is a member of the executive board.
