Faculty of Management and Law reaccredited by CIMA
The Faculty of Management and Law are pleased to announce that we have been awarded indefinite accreditation from the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA)
Prior to this award the Faculty received accreditation on a yearly basis. The CIMA have changed the way they award institutions as part of a broader picture that pertains to the way the CIMA professional qualification is recognized and acquired in the future.
At the beginning of this year, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants joined forces to create the most influential body of professional accountants in the world, the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants – this partnership enables broader recognition of the CIMA qualification.
Students who pass the following undergraduate modules are exempt from certain examinations from the CIMA, as they have already covered the content during their degree:
- Management Accounting
- Financial Management
- Financial Accounting
- Corporate Reporting
Having these exemptions means our graduates can achieve professional chartered accountant status faster.
Tamer Elshandidy Head of Accounting, Finance and Economics said:
‘This is a great achievement, which reflects the recognition of the rigorous of our modules’ contents in accounting and finance. It further shows that how these contents are in line with CIMA requirements.
Likewise, we are also proud that the contents of our teaching mirror the cutting-edge research academic staff within the Accounting, Finance and Economics Research Centre are constantly publishing in internationally recognised academic journals. Collectively, this improves our students’ employability by combining professional with academic knowledge which also gives our graduates a great advantage in the job market’.
