What are the entry routes?
CIMA is the natural progression for people with finance and business degrees. The great news is that there are many employers who will sponsor you to study the CIMA Professional Qualification – and if you have already studied a relevant degree or qualification, you may be entitled to exemptions from some CIMA exams.

However, you don’t need a relevant degree to start your CIMA studies. Graduates in other disciplines start by studying the CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting, which gives them a solid grounding to then progress to the CIMA Professional Qualification.

What is management accountancy?
Management accountants don’t fit the stereotype of number-crunchers. In fact, quite the opposite. Chartered management accountants are at the heart of all strategic decisions that are key to business success. They work out how much and how many, and get results by looking at trends and behaviour. Ever wondered who decides on the price per song on iTunes and how? Or why festival tickets work out more expensive for one day than the whole weekend? Management accountants operate in all types of organisations, often having top jobs, with many going on to run their own businesses.
