What Are the Requirements for the EB1-C Functional Manager Application?

Hi William,

I am a manager of an electronic company. Not all of my managed employees are considered as professionals by USCIS. Do you think it is possible for me to apply for a EB-1C as a Functional Manager? and what are the requirements for the EB1-C Functional Manager?


A functional manager is defined as a "manager who has responsibility for one area of activity such as finance, marketing, production, personnel, accounting, or sales." For function managers, managerial capacity means an assignment within an organization in which the beneficiary primarily:

1) Manages the organization, or a department, subdivision, function, or component of the organization;

2) Manages an essential function within the organization, or a department or subdivision of the organization;

3) Functions at a senior level within the organizational hierarchy or with respect to the function managed; and

4) Exercises discretion over the day-to-day operations of the activity or function for which the employee has authority.
