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.

With employers identifying the need for finance professionals to be valuable right across the organisation, CIMA s unique blend of management accounting, financial accounting and business focused subjects continues to produce competent and confident Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA ) professionals who can lead their organisations to sustainable success.

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

A comparison has been carried out between CIMA and following professional bodies, to help you identify the difference:

ACCA Association of Chartered Certified Accountants

CPA Ireland Certified Public Accountants Ireland

ICAI Institute of Chartered Accountants Ireland

ICAEW Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales
