CIMA's Professional Qualification is the most relevant global finance qualification for business. Before you can get started, you will need a foundation in business or accounting studies, such as the CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting.
All 3 Objective Tests within a level must be completed before sitting the Case Study assessment for that level. However, if you have studied partly under the old CIMA syllabus consult our guidelines for progressing to the Case Study.†
