The CIMA Syllabus comprises of nine subjects that are organised in three pillars and three levels.
The three pillars (Enterprise, Performance, Financial) represent specific areas of knowledge. The content of each pillar develops as students move up the qualification. The three pillars are interlinked to provide a coherent body of knowledge that will equip successful students with the competencies they require.
The three levels represent levels of achievement within the qualification. Students progress from the Operational Level to the Management Level and finally to the Strategic Level. At each level students study subjects across the three pillars.

The CGMA Competency Framework is designed to help management accountants and their employers understand the knowledge requirements and assess the skills needed for both current and desired roles. The framework is underpinned by the need for objectivity, integrity and ethical behaviour, and includes a continuous commitment to acquire new skills and knowledge. The CGMA Competency Framework is the foundation that will demonstrate the relevance and capabilities of a CGMA designation holder as a trusted finance and business strategist.
The CGMA Competency Framework was developed through three phases of research: face-to-face interviews, round tables and an online survey. The participants ranged from finance and non-finance staff in mid to senior levels, covering diverse industries from both the private and public sectors.

In an industry first, we have developed examination blueprints for all Objective Tests and Case Study assessments which will take the mystery out of the our examinations process and clearly articulate what will be assessed in CIMA exams.
The blueprints will evolve allowing us to keep examinable content fresh and relevant. The blueprints won't make exam questions any easier, but it will allow candidates to more clearly demonstrate knowledge, relevance and skills acquisition to current and future employers.
We've built a planner to deliver personalised transition advice based on your current progress through the qualification, and to help you chart the best course as we get closer to the transition from 2015 to 2019 syllabus. Simply log in with your CIMA Contact ID and password to make a start.
