CIMA Syllabus 2015

CIMA is a global professional institute of management accountants for both public and private sectors.

  • There are 17 subjects across 4 levels, each assessed by a computer-based exam.

  • Most students take around 4-6 per year, however you may not need to sit every paper if you have exemptions.

  • On average, it takes our students around three years to complete the CIMA Professional qualification.

CIMA Certificate cements the fundamentals of business and accountancy. The Professional qualification builds further on this across three key pillars: Enterprise, Performance and Financial.

Professional modules develop core accounting and finance skills. At the end of each level you are required to use all of these skills to evaluate and tackle real-life business situations in a case study, preparing you to successfully drive strategic decisions and manage performance.
