 How does CIMA work?

The CIMA qualification is structured into two:

  1. CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting
  • If you only have or don’t have matric but over 16 years, you will start from this level.
  • You will do the following subjects:
    • Fundamentals of Management Accounting
    • Fundamentals of Financial Accounting
    • Fundamentals of Business Economics
    • Fundamentals of Ethics, Corporate Governance and Business Law
  • You can do the Certificate either in one or two semesters, where you take three subjects in one semester and two in another.
  • Upon completing this level, you will be awarded the CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting – NQF 5 and move to the CIMA Professional Qualification

 

  1. CIMA Professional Qualification
  • This level is split into three:
    • Operational Level – you will do three subjects, refer to attached for the list of subjects.
    • Management Level – you will do three subjects, refer to attached for the list of subjects.
    • Strategic Level – you will do three subjects, refer to attached for the list of subjects.
    • Board Exam (previously known as T4) from 2015 has been replaced by the Strategic Level Integrated Case Study
    • It will take you a semester to complete each level if you doing it either full-time or part-time.
    • When you complete each level, you will be awarded a certification which is not the case when you study towards a Diploma/Degree somewhere else.
