On successful completion of the exam, you will be granted 11 exemptions from the CIMA professional qualification (all exemptions are free) and will be awarded the CIMA advanced diploma in management accounting.

 

You will then be able to enter the strategic level papers P3, E3 and F3.

*Students will be able to choose one of four options:

 

Option A: C1 + C2: This option may be suitable for an MBA graduate with a non-accounting background, or anyone who would like to brush up on the basics. These papers cover the fundamentals of management and financial accounting; which are considered ‘assumed knowledge’ for the gateway paper.

 

Option B: P1 + F1: This option may be suitable for an MBA graduate who would like to become more familiar with the performance and financial pillars, which form part of the gateway assessment. The performance pillar considers how finance facilitates the way strategy is formulated and implemented; whilst the finance pillar considers how financial statements are prepared and interpreted.

 

Option C: E1 + P1: This option may be suitable for a Masters in accounting graduate, who would like some focus on the enterprise and performance pillars. The enterprise pillar considers how we formulate and effectively implement strategy; whilst the performance pillar considers how finance facilitates the way strategy is formulated and implemented.

 

Option D: E1 + F1: This option may be suitable for a Masters in accounting graduate, who would like some focus on the enterprise and financial pillars. The enterprise pillar considers how we formulate and effectively implement strategy; whilst the finance pillar considers how financial statements are prepared and interpreted.
