Stronger together for a stronger profession

We are pleased to share the good news that CIMA members have overwhelmingly endorsed our long-term strategy and proposal to evolve our joint venture with the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and create a new accounting association.

Staying ahead

In 2011, we formed our joint venture with AICPA to establish the Chartered Global Management Accountant® (CGMA®) designation. This marked the start of our new strategy for international growth.

Leading on new thinking

We are at the forefront of our profession's response to new business needs and produce research and insights to challenge thinking and keep CGMAs at the forefront of the profession.

Meeting new world needs

The way the world does business is changing, with profound challenges for organisations across the world. Systems of production, management, and governance are all being transformed, putting increasing pressure on businesses to create added value.
