                                  What is the CIMA Qualification?                     

                                  CIMA is the world’s leading, and largest, professional body of Management Accountants with a unique blend of management accounting, financial accounting and business-focused subjects producing competent and confident Chartered Global Management Accountants (CGMAs) who can lead their organisations  to sustainable success.    

                                  The CIMA Qualification Structure comprises these 2 a (1) Competency Framework and a (2) Qualification Framework.        

                                  1. The CIMA Compentecy Framework

                                  The Competency Framework below achieves 2 ideas:   


                                  Idea 1:

                                  It quality-assures your education, developing your skills around 4 mind-set changing competencies of a modern Management Accountant. These 4 broad competencies include:

                                  Technical competence

                                  Apply accounting & financial skills

                                  Business competence

                                  In the context of business

                                  People competence

                                  To influence people

                                  Leadership competence

                                  And lead within the organisation

                                  Idea 2:

                                  It is founded on strong ethical values and the professional skills that brings together Financial Accounting, Management Accounting and Business (Strategy).

                                  2. The Qualfication Framework

                                   As illustrated below, the Qualification Framework, derived from the CIMA Competency Framework elaborates 3 further ideas: 

                                  Idea 3:

                                  It is structured around 3 vertical pillars (the Enterprise, Performance & Financial Pillar) and 4 distinct horizontal levels (Certificate, Operational, Management & Strategic Levels) requiring a pass at 13 Objective Tests (OTs) and 3 progressively-challenging accounting and integrated business case study exams (the Operational Case Study, Management Case Study & the Strategic Case Study Exams); test

                                  Idea 4:

                                  It allows you to obtain 3 separately recognised qualifications along the way (the CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting, CIMA Diploma in Management Accounting and the CIMA Advanced Diploma in Management Accounting); and

                                  Idea 5:

                                  It requires 3 years of practical work experience (‘articles’) which you can obtain before, during or after your CIMA studies.


                                  In essence, The CIMA Qualification assures that you are technically astute, business savvy (acumen),    emotionally intelligent and leadership smart, with a strong ethical and moral compass; transforming you into a sought-after finance professional.

                                  Professional Qualification vs Academic Qualification

                                  CIMA is a professional rather than academic qualification; and it is SAQA-registered at NQF 7 (honors degree equivalent). An academic qualification (-typically a certificate, diploma or degree) is issued by a tertiary institution (e.g. a university), to certify your theoretical knowledge, without regard as to your ethical compass and actual competency to apply that knowledge in the real-world. A professional qualification on the other hand, is generally issued by a globally renowned professional body (CIMA- in this case), to confirm your theoretical knowledge, ethical compass as well as your actual ability (competency) to professionally apply that knowledge at work; uniquely verified through a set of progressively rigorous professional exams, case studies (simulations) and practical work experience. This distinction is crucial as it explains why employers prefer professional quali­fications; although paradoxically, many mistakenly, still choose to pursue academic rather than professional qualifications. 

                                  As outlined below, only CharterQuest combines your CIMA Fulltime exam-focused tuition and the required practical work experience opportunities, to secure your employability upon graduation!

                                  The gateway route is a great way to fast track onto the CIMA Professional Qualification and earn the highly valued CGMA designation. This fast track route enables eligible individuals to progress directly to the final level of the CIMA Professional Qualification (Strategic level), upon passing the CIMA Gateway Exam. The CIMA Gateway Exam is also known as the Management Case Study exam for those not on the accelerated route.

                                  We have designed the Gateway Package (Combo 4) for you to pass your exam 1st time! Our Recommendation is that even  though you qualify for the Gateway Exam route (i.e. direct entry through the CIMA Management Case Study (MCS) exams), going directly to attend our Gateway Exam course will require that your knowledge of E2, P2 & F2 under the CIMA 2019 syllabus is up to date as the course mainly seeks to apply that knowledge to the case study. Please ensure you review the  CIMA 2019 Syllabus for E2, P2 & F2   to confirm that your Master's Degree or Professional Qualification was not only recently obtained but rigorously covered this syllabus. If not, we strongly  recommend that you enrol for/take our Tuition & Exam Preparation Package (TEPP -Evenings or Weekends) to help deepen your mastery of E2, P2 & F2 and secure the vital tools you will need on the Gateway course instead of going direct. Experience teaches us that 90% of those who follow our advice pass 1st Time whereas 95% of those who do not often regret it!

                                  Should you follow this advice, note that you will not be required to write the official E2, P2 & F2 CIMA OT Exams as you have been exempted but you can take our internal tests to prepare you ahead of the Gateway course which normally starts 3-4 weeks after. You can take the Combo 4 TEPP Package .

                                  About our Global CA Course

                                  For you as a CA(SA), we use these unique insights to tailor our CA Pathway Course around your unique strengths, to ensure over the 5 days preparation programme, we fill any gaps that will ensure on 1st attempt, you pass the CIMA Strategic Case Study Exams! Although in terms of this CA Pathway, you are exempted from 15 CIMA modules, passing the Strategic Case Study Exams requires an up-to-date and very detailed application of the following 4 CIMA modules:

                                  • CIMA P2 - Advanced Management Accounting; 

                                  • CIMA E3 - Strategic Management;

                                  • CIMA P3 - Risk Management; and

                                  • CIMA F3 - Financial Strategy.

                                  Given the integrated nature of the Strategic Case Study Exams, you need a team of expert tutors who are not only CA(SA), CIMA and/or MBA-qualified, but with years of actual CIMA teaching experience around the above 4 individual modules, plus Strategic Case Study Exams, to hold your hands. This is precisely how our course is structured: around your life-style and learning style, and sensitive to your mid-to-advanced career pressures. 

                                  We combine the practical application of knowledge and the integration of what you already know, with the new CIMA material; departing from textbook-style learning, flexibly blending face-to-face (classroom-style) teaching with our technology enabled e-learning platforms, to grant access to video-recorded sessions and materials, whilst exploiting a network and collaborative approach through whatsapp and linked-in groups.

                                  We have not only produced superb 1st time passes for previous CA(SA)s who have studied and completed their CIMA Strategic Case Study Exams with us, but have converted at least one CA(SA) to become Joint Global Top 4 at CIMA Strategic Case Study Exams. We look forward to achieving similar results with you, as you seek to add CIMA’s CGMA designation to your already, well-respected CA(SA) designation!”
