Skills You’ll Learn From CIMA Courses 

CIMA does not only teach you how to crunch the numbers. It teaches you a range of other skills and techniques that will make you excel in every field. Think of it as the premium black card of accountancy and business management. 

Strategic Thinking

Because CIMA Courses bring together management and accounting, it is important to be a critical thinker. CIMA will teach you how to think and act strategically to maximise profits in your business. 

Problem-solving Skills 

Strategic thinking comes with the ability to solve problems. Professionally. Without hurting the company or your clients. It’s about creating a win-win situation and CIMA is all about winning. Always. 

Attention to Detail

Because you’ll be dealing with finances which are a business life line, you need to be excellent at noticing every little detail. Worried that your attention to detail is not up to standard? Don’t worry. By the time you finish your course, you won’t miss a thing.

CIMA Courses you can Study With us

CIMA is divided into two categories. The first one, Cert BA is made for those who have no prior qualifications. It has  4 subjects and takes 12 – 18 months to complete. The next one is the Professional Qualification. It is for those who already have relevant qualifications. This course has 3 levels of progression.

CIMA Operational Certificate Course

This is the first level. It focuses on how to make and implement short term plans. You’ll write 3 tests and one case study exam. 

CIMA Managerial Level Course

This second level course focuses on changing long-term development plans into  medium term plans. It teaches students how to monitor and manage performance, allocate resources and read financial statements. It has three tests and one case study exam. 

CIMA Strategic Level Course

This is the last level and also consists of 3 tests and one case study exam. This teaches you how to manage and evaluate risks and find financial resources needed.

CIMA Exemptions

If you have already obtained a recognised finance qualification, you may qualify for a CIMA exemption. This means you don’t need to complete assignments and exams which you have already completed in your previous qualification, and can simply pick up where you left off.

Check out the CIMA database to see whether you qualify for an exemption.
