The Institute of Management Accounting and Strategy (IMAS) brings you the CIMA Classes on a Monthly Block Release. The block release system of education helps you remain in your community and get a quality education by combining distance learning with intensive, interactive classes at a venue near you. The block release program allows students to maintain the balance of career, study and family life to further their education.

Target Audience

The CIMA qualification is aimed at individuals who aspire to become professional accountants, business leaders, and entrepreneurs. Upon completing the CIMA qualification and acquiring the relevant experience, you will become a Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA).

How does it work? 

  • Students will attend interactive classes over two days a month covering between two and four modules, depending on the subjects enrolled for.
  • The interactive classes are tailored to provide students with a solid foundation for the work they need to cover, as well as assist students in areas they are battling with.
  • In between block releases, students will be able to access pre-recorded classes via our online student portal. Students will need to use the pre-recorded class videos in conjunction with course outline to ensure they get the best out of the interactive classes.
  • The course outline assists students with the weekly program to ensure students do not fall behind before the next interactive classes.

How long is the course?
