CIMA and CIPFA in discussion

CIMA programme would offer access to its world-leading CGMA designation

The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) is in discussion with public service specialist the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) about offering the latter’s members a route to CIMA membership and the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation. Further details are expected to be available later in the year.

Looking ahead, the two organisations will also discuss how they can co-operate to strengthen public sector financial management.

Charles Tilley, Chief Executive at CIMA, said:

“CIPFA is one of the most respected professional bodies in the public sector in the world with members based across the globe. Its members are increasingly bringing business-focused skills and judgements to their organisations, and CIMA is delighted to be working with CIPFA to build upon an already world-renowned level of training.”

Rob Whiteman, Chief Executive at CIPFA, said:

“Across the public sector globally, CIMA is respected for its expertise and leadership in the field of management accounting. We intend to build a bridge that enables our members to access that expertise and will help strengthen their own professional practice and the financial management of the organisations they support.”
