Managerial Level

This is the second level of the Professional Qualification and consists of three computer based Objective Tests and one Case Study. The Management level translates the strategy decided at higher levels and communicates it to lower levels for implementation. It monitors and reports on the implementation and delivery of strategy, and ensures corrective action is taken when required. It has a medium-term focus. On completion, you receive the CIMA Advanced Diploma in Management Accounting (CIMA Adv. Dip MA).
