Cima updates its professional qualification
Accountancy News |
The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (Cima) has launched an updated version of its Cima Future professional qualification.
Working with the University of Bath, Cima developed the new offering following extensive research and contributions from more than 4,500 employers and other stakeholders worldwide, news which might interest accountancy recruitment staff.
The managerial level of the qualification is now split into two parts, operational and managerial.
Following the completion of these two new levels, students will progress on to the strategic element of the course.
Robert Jelly, Cima's director of education, said: "In the present economic climate it is more important than ever for finance professionals to be trained and attuned to the current needs of industry."
The fact that the Cima qualification is updated every four years means it acts as a quality benchmark for management accountants, he added.
Students will sit the first exams in the new qualification in May 2010.
Yesterday, Prince Charles called on finance professionals to lead the way in developing a method to count the cost of carbon emissions to business.
He urged the world to work together to tackle climate change.
