CIMA Professional Qualification

CIMA has introduced an updated syllabus and assessment method for its professional qualification starting from January 2015.

The 2015 CIMA Professional Qualification Syllabus aims to address the ‘employability’ needs of businesses and people. The updated syllabus and assessment bridges skill gaps and helps to produce competent and confident management accounting professionals who can guide and lead their organisations to sustainable success.

The 2015 CIMA Professional Qualification is built on three specific learning pillars:

  • Enterprise: How to formulate and effectively implement strategy
  • Performance: How finance helps in formulating and effectively implementing strategy
  • Financial: How to prepare and interpret financial statements to make decisions
The content of each pillar develops as you move up the qualification. The pillars are interlinked to provide a consistent body of knowledge. They are designed to cover a range of useful business areas in addition to finance. The syllabus is also divided into three levels of achievement:
  • Operational
  • Management
  • Strategic


You will progress from the Operational level, to the Management level and finally to Strategic level. The levels encourage a linear development of knowledge. This ensures you learn the relevant skills needed by today’s businesses.

Progress Training and Consultancy has really helped me achieve my goals in studying towards the CIMA qualification. By having tutors with real industry experience their course really adds value to the quality of your knowledge particularly at the higher level of the qualification
