Ethics and professionalism

At CIMA we help you develop both your technical ability and your professional capacity.

Once you become a member, the designatory letters (ACMA, CGMA) and chartered status denote your professionalism, practical experience, credibility and integrity, along with your commitment to ethics and CIMA professional development. Ethics is a key component of being a chartered professional, enhancing reputation, employability and ongoing earning potential. That’s why ethical practice and understanding sits at the heart of the CIMA qualification and all members and students are committed to upholding the CIMA Code of Ethics.

The Code, based on five fundamental principles, is globally recognised and offers a framework for ethical decision making and set of principles for all to follow. CIMA’s Code and supporting resource material for ethics helps provide useful guidance around ethical practice and resolving ethical dilemmas.

Ultimately, ethics makes good business sense. See why ethics is important to your career and long-term business success by clicking below.
