I am trusted. Your guide to conduct
Ethics and professionalism

You can lead the way.

The CIMA Code of Ethics are the fundamental principles that mark CIMA members out as leading professionals. They are the foundations of an organisation determined to set the highest possible ethical and professional standards.

To help you lead the way, we offer CIMA members tools and resources to keep you informed and set the ground rules for every professional conduct area. For example, make the right choice when faced with a situation that conflicts with the CIMA code of ethics by using the Ethics CPD Tool.

Watch this Ethics webcast to understand the benefits of ethics and professionalism from other members, as well as what makes CGMAs stand out as the most trusted in the profession.
