How Is CIMA Beneficial To Students

Be recognised globally

By becoming a CIMA member you will join the world’s largest professional body of management accountants. You will be able to use the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation and be part of a truly global network. The CGMA designation is powered by two of the world’s leading accounting bodies – CIMA and AICPA. It aims to establish management accounting as the most valued profession in business worldwide.

Combine finance and business

CIMA focuses on business, giving you more than just accounting knowledge. You will not only be financially qualified but also professionally trained in business management, capable of advising on business strategy and risk management.

Demonstrate professionalism and employability

As a CIMA student or member, you show employers that you have a commitment to uphold the highest ethical and professional standards. Our ongoing professional development also keeps your qualification relevant.

Boost your earning potential

A CIMA qualification can increase your earning potential, even while you are still studying. Our global salary surveys show what you can expect to earn as a fully qualified or part-qualified professional.


All accountants are not the same. If you went on an expedition and took a financial accountant and a management accountant with you, they would do very different things.

The financial accountant would take photos, buy souvenirs and keep an accurate diary. Afterwards, the financial accountant would write a book of the expedition to look back and share with family and friends, in the same way as they would report on past financial performance.

The management accountant would do all of that and more. They would plan your journey and give you options of where to go; explaining the attractions of different destinations and routes, and what you would need for each alternative. After the expedition the management accountant would encourage you to think about your next expedition, working with you to ensure it would be even more rewarding than the previous one. Management accountants use past experience and information of all kinds, not just financial, to help manage the future of the business

Management accountants are highly employable, equipped with a wide variety of skills. Their role in the organisation puts them at the heart of the business. By helping people and businesses to succeed, CIMA is the first choice for employers, with members and students in 176 countries worldwide.
