Member: Chartered Institute of Management Accountants

CIMA is the world’s largest and leading professional body of management accountants. We have 183,000 members and students in 168 countries. They work at the heart of business.

Our members and students work in industry, commerce and not for profit organisations. We have strong relationships with employers, and sponsor leading research.

Why CIMA is different
Most accounting qualifications train people for 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.
CIMA’s value to business
Independent research by the Bath University School of Management contrasted the CIMA syllabus and exams with those of eight other bodies and compared our business focus with theirs.

The research found that compared to the other bodies, CIMA’s syllabus consistently provides:

  • more management accounting
  • more business strategy
  • more financial strategy.

Our syllabus is designed to deliver a strong understanding of all aspects of business so our members can contribute in many areas of an organisation.
