CIMA qualification overview
CIMA qualification is structured into five levels. Certificate level consists of five papers and gives a solid basis and good knowledge to study upper levels. Students may be eligible for exemptions from certificate papers if they have studied a relevant qualification.
Whereas certificate level is focused on gaining knowledge and understand it, nine modules of operational level, management level and strategic level require student to apply the knowledge and analyse the detail of what they have learned. Finally, professional competence level comprises two component parts – case study examination and three years relevant work based practical experience, which is an essential part of CIMA qualification.
The AICPA and CIMA have joined together to form a joint venture which powers a new designation for management accountants, the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA). The CGMA is designed to elevate management accounting and further emphasise its importance for businesses worldwide.
