You can become a CIMA member by choosing the new alternative pathway to the CIMA Qualification - CGMA Finance Leadership Program.
The CGMA Finance Leadership Program has been designed to give you the skills, practical experience and forward-thinking, entrepreneurial mindset business needs of their finance professionals.
It's an online learning program, similar in scope and rigor to a master’s degree, that teaches you the finance, business, people and leadership skills that you need to succeed in the finance team of the future. All your learning, assessments and CaseStudy exam preparation takes place within the comprehensive FLP platform.

“I really like that as you complete each subject you get a certificate from CIMA. It is a very easy way to show on your CV the progress you are making. With the original pathway, I felt you had nothing until you had the last exam passed, so for those working at it in phases, it is more difficult to show progress. There was significant financial savings with the CGMA Finance Leadership Program (FLP) and also as it is direct with CIMA, I like that you are using CIMA's own notes.”
