CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) is the world’s largest professional body of management accountants. Graduates who become a CIMA member will be able to use the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation and be part of a global network.
The CIMA exemptions’ follows the recent news of ICAEW credits for this programme. Dr Jill Collis, Director of the MSc Accounting and Business Management programme, commented
“Both the CIMA paper exemptions and ICAEW credit awards are great news for our students who are starting this programme this September and in January 2014. This new programme will help our students to gain a head start in the professional world especially if they wish to become professional accountants.”
Brunel Business School launched the new MSc in recognition of the fact that accounting information lies at the heart of management and is used by investors, business contacts, competitors and other external parties. The programme benefits from the Accounting expertise in the School, as personified by Dr Jill Collis, and colleagues from the Accounting and Auditing Research Centre (AARC) in the School, who recently held the 3rd Brunel Accounting Symposium exploring the latest trends in the field.
