On completion of the CIMA qualification and becoming a CIMA member, students are then automatically entitled to the CGMA designation which is powered by CIMA and our joint venture partners, AICPA (the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants).

To become a CIMA member and a CGMA designation holder, students must have passed all their exams and have gained a minimum of three years relevant practical experience (PER) which CIMA will need to verify.
