Whatever you’ve got planned for September, why not use the summer break to get work-ready and stay one step ahead of other school leavers?
You could start studying the CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting right now and add ‘CIMA student’ to your CV, along with your unique ID number for potential employers to check in our database.
CIMA is the world’s leading professional body of management accountants, providing the most relevant qualification for a career in business. Employers know that CIMA students are dedicated and ambitious and have a thorough grounding in business and finance. So when you’re looking for your first job, internship or apprenticeship, you’ll stand out above other candidates.
It doesn’t matter what exams you’ve taken or what results you achieved. Anybody can study the entry-level CIMA Certificate. It’s a valuable qualification in its own right, but it can also act as a stepping-stone to the CIMA Professional Qualification, which leads to Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) status.
As a Chartered Global Management Accountant, you’ll be able to work in any sector, anywhere in the world. Far from just crunching numbers, you’ll add real value to any business by interpreting complex data, advising senior management on financial risk, shaping strategy and making key decisions.
This summer is the perfect time to register as a CIMA student and start your journey to a successful career in business or finance. You can get started straight away, and since the computer based tests are available all year round, study is completely flexible. If you’re still studying when you start work, your employer might agree to fund your CIMA qualification so you can train alongside your job.
