What is management accounting?

Management accountants work in all areas of business, in all types of organisations in both the public and private sectors, all over the world. They use information of all kinds, not just financial, to lead and inform business strategy and drive sustainable success. As a chartered global management accountant (CGMA), you will use this information to develop dynamic solutions to improve business.

You can study either full or part time. There are different ways to study depending on what works best for you, including:

  1. Using a tuition provider for either full or online/blended learning. Tuition providers offer the best chance of success.
  2. Using our online study course which takes you step-by-step through the CIMA qualification and has helped thousands of students pass their exams.
  3. Self-study, using CIMA publishing textbooks. Study with official CIMA textbooks and study materials.
