The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) offers the most relevant international accounting qualification for business. They are the world’s leading and largest professional body of management accountants. Most accounting qualifications train people to work in private practice, working on external audit and tax issues. CIMA prepares people for a career in business. It teaches skills for strategic advice, managing risk and making key decisions.
In order to study towards this professional qualification you must register as a student member with CIMA.
CIMA's aim is to provide a valuable qualification for students, to support members and employers, and protect the public interest. CIMA has over 88,000 students and 70,000 members in 161 countries. CIMA's focus on management functions makes it unique, and it is internationally recognised as offering the financial qualification for business. CIMA works with leading employers in the UK and around the world to train and qualify financial managers. CIMA prides itself on the commercial relevance of its syllabus, which is continually enhanced to reflect the latest business developments.
The CIMA qualification framework is divided into two parts, the entry level certificate in business accounting and the professional qualification. At this Access College London we provide courses to help you complete exams for the following elements of the entry level and professional qualifications.
All the exams are operated by CIMA and take place in CIMA designated exam centres in late May and late November. In order to register for these exams you must be a CIMA registered student. For more details on CIMA student membership please visit www.cimaglobal.com.
CIMA Entry Requirements
CIMA qualifications are open to everyone, but your entry level will depend on your previous experience. The syllabus builds step-by-step, and you will develop your knowledge and skills as you progress through the qualification.
CIMA course exemptions
You may previously have passed exams which entitle you to exemptions from some of the CIMA exams. You can expect to receive exemptions if you hold a relevant degree or a relevant professional qualification. For example, AAT membership offers exemption from the whole Certificate level. We advise you to check your starting point with CIMA. To obtain written confirmation of your exemptions status, visit www.cimaglobal.com/exemptions
