Course content

If the CIMA Professional Qualification sets out to do one thing, it’s this: to enhance your employability. Upon completion, you’ll have the skills, competencies and mindset that employers are looking for.

The syllabus comprises three levels of achievement. You’ll start at the Operational level and move on to Management before culminating at the Strategic level. Throughout, you’ll study nine subjects from three areas of knowledge: Enterprise, Performance and Financial. To earn the Professional Qualification, you’ll need to complete all three levels – the average student takes around four years – and have three years of relevant practical experience under your belt.

Sound challenging? It’s meant to be. But once you’ve finished, you’ll be a Chartered Global Management Accountant, capable of supporting and leading an organisation through an environment of constant change. And with the CGMA designation after your name, everyone will know how capable you are.
