Opportunities for a successful career in business

Are you about to leave school or college? Are you interested in a successful career in business?
CIMA can offer you a qualification that is highly valued by employers worldwide and is a great opportunity to learn while you earn.  If you’re looking for an alternative to university that will allow you to immediately progress your career, earn a great salary and become professionally qualified in the process then CIMA could be for you.

What are you waiting for?
You don’t need to have a degree to start your CIMA studies. In fact, many graduates who have been to university find that a degree alone is not enough. Many decide to study the CIMA qualification after they have completed their degree to learn the practical skills they need to achieve their career goals.

So why wait? Start CIMA now and within three years you could be a Chartered Management Accountant, and all without a mountain of student debt to your name. All it requires is a competency in English and maths and a real desire to succeed in business.

The opportunities are endless
Wherever your passions lie, being a CIMA qualified management accountant is sure to open doors for you. Many of our members work in exciting industries including fashion, sport, travel, media or publishing.

Richard Kinney studied the CIMA qualification while working at Arcadia Group before becoming commercial planning manager for Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment:

‘CIMA prepares students to work in business and isn’t limited to pure accountancy. In my experience the high level decisions made within a company are often driven or supported by a management accountant. To be part of this process really appealed to me’.

On top of all this, CIMA members are generously rewarded for their efforts. As a newly qualified Chartered Management Accountant you can expect to earn around £41,000* a year.

If you want an exciting and rewarding career, sign up to find out more about CIMA today (Click here).
