The Cert BA Qualification

About Cert BA

The Certificate in Business Accounting (Cert BA) is an introductory finance qualification by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).

Established in 1919, CIMA is now the world’s largest leading professional body of management accountants. CIMA members and students work in a variety of roles including in industry, commerce and not for profit organisations.

In 2017, members of CIMA and AICPA formed the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants to unite and strengthen the accounting profession globally. This represents an influential network of more than 650,000 members and students in management and public accounting around the world.

The Cert BA qualification is an ideal introduction to core business and finance skills for individuals with little or no previous accounting knowledge.

The Cert BA is a qualification in it’s own right and also forms a formal entry route into the CIMA Professional Qualification.
