CIMA launches revised business certificate

Certificate will be entry level route to CIMA qualification

The revised Certificate of Business Accounting qualification is designed to
appeal to both financial and non-financial staff, the Chartered Institute of
Management Accountants has said.

The course will include modules covering business economics, financial
accounting, ethics, corporate governance and business law.

Robert Jelly, CIMA’s director of education, said: ‘The Certificate’s
flexibility as both a stand alone qualification for non financial managers and
an entry level route to the professional Chartered Management Accountant
Qualification will ensure its relevance to employers and students alike.’

Jelly added that the certificate took into account the ‘rapidly changing
business and regulatory environments and CIMA’s focus on ensuring employers are
increasingly attracted to CIMA’s qualifications framework, both for financial
and increasingly non-financial staff’.
