How the CIMA qualification works
The CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) accounting qualification is the world’s largest professional body of management accountants.
The Certificate in Business Accounting is an entry level qualification; ideal for those who have little or no accounting background. It is awarded after the completion of five subjects. Babington offers two levels of CIMA courses, which make up the full Professional qualification:
- Certificate in Business Accounting
- Diploma & Advanced Diploma in Management Accounting
The Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Management Accounting is structured into three pillars: Enterprise, Performance and Financial. These are then examined at each of the three levels that make up the qualification: Operational, Management, and Strategic.
CIMA places financial knowledge within a commercial context, making CIMA qualified professionals indispensable to organisations looking to drive forward performance. Throughout the course, you will gain an in-depth understanding of business management, making you capable of advising on business strategy and risk management.
You may qualify for some exemptions towards exams if you already have other relevant qualifications. Ask one of our advisors for more details.
