What’s CIMA?

CIMA stands for The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.  The world’s largest professional body of management accountants, with the most useful accounting qualification for a career in business. Once you complete your studies with CIMA, you’ll become a CIMA member, get the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation and join the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (the Association), the world’s largest professional body of accountants.

The Benefits of being CGMA designation holder:
