There’s no doubt that hiring or training a Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) will help your business thrive, whatever your size or sector. As well as strong financial accounting knowledge, they’ll bring valuable, relevant skills to the team like problem solving, strategy planning, dynamic analysis and leadership.
And with the CGMA letters after their name they’ll inspire confidence in the partners, clients and stakeholders they work with.
What is management accounting?
Management accounting combines accounting, finance and management with the business skills and techniques you’ll need to add real value to any organisation. Management accountants are qualified to work across the business, not just in finance, advising managers on the financial implications of big decisions, formulating business strategy and monitoring risk – much more than just crunching numbers.
