Why choose CIMA?

CIMA’s business-ready qualification

CIMA’s study and robust assessment methods mean that the real-life skills and competencies employers need are woven into the syllabus.

About our syllabus

The syllabus is strong on the core accounting skill, but also includes ‘Big Data’, sustainability, integrated reporting and finance function transformation. We also study risk, as well as costing and cost management.

Passing your CIMA assessments at every level shows to an employer that you have a grasp of theory and practice.

Online assessment

All assessments are computer based and in the case of the objective tests are available ‘on demand’.  

We're the first global accountancy body to pioneer a combination of computerised assessments to examine our syllabus. This reflects the wider use of technology in education and industry.
