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.
Together with AICPA, CIMA established the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation which provides members with an extensive level of resources and recognition.
