CIMA : Operational – Level 1

Diploma in Management Accounting

CIMA Operational teaches you about organisational management, costs and analysis used in production, and financial reporting and taxation. You also take a Case Study, which tests your overall knowledge of the level. You’ll take around 9 to 12 months to complete the level.

After completing this level, you can move into roles such as a financial analyst or management accountant. You can then move onto the CIMA Management level.

NEW CIMA 2019 Syllabus – Introduction

CIMA certification is changing yet again. Is it a good thing? I think so. 
It shows that CIMA wants to be ahead of the curve - the leader in the management accounting profession. CIMA is literally the first certification body realising that the role of finance is shifting. Nowadays we - management accountants, rely much more on technology. A long time ago we stopped crunching the numbers or counting the beans. We became partners to the business. And now, we step up yet again, from navigator to co-pilot of the business.

The digital age is here. AI is becoming more and more common. Those are the changes that we should prepare for. Simple jobs will be most likely replaced by machines. But what machines cannot do (at least now) is to provide strategic guidance. That is the new role for us.
