Make It in the Field of Accounting with a CIMA Course
Do you have the entrepreneurial itch, but can’t afford university, or have you just finished school and are undecided about what to do with the rest of your life? Whether you’ve just matriculated, returned from a gap year, or are looking to break free from that job you absolutely hate – there’s no better time than the present to further your skills in accounting.
Unfortunately, today, business is tough, and in an overcrowded marketplace such as ours, you need to set yourself apart from the rest. Over the past decade, South Africa has witnessed the failure of many businesses, both large and small. While there are several reasons for the failure of a business (notwithstanding our volatile economy and high level of competition), the real damage is caused by poor financial management.
Without the proper financial training, any business can run the risk of falling into serious cash-flow problems, and this is why a CIMA course is so important. An ideal qualification for those looking to enter the field of accounting, for start-ups that can’t afford to outsource an accountant, and even for large organisations looking to expand their accounting skill set, a CIMA course can open the door to the lucrative world of accounting, and it can help any business succeed.
What is a CIMA Qualification?
A CIMA course will give you all the necessary strategic business and financial management skills required to make it in the field of accounting, or turn your business into a success. It is an essential qualification for start-ups and for those looking to make a career as an accountant. Here’s what a CIMA course will teach you to do:
- Analyse information and numbers, and use the information to make tactical business decisions.
- Develop shareholder confidence and trust by increasing business resilience.
- Build a shared understanding of levers for value creation.
- Identify and better manage risks.
- Capitalise on new opportunities.
- Learn new accounting practices and techniques.
- Preserve business value.
- Put finance at the heart of business decision-making.
On completion of a CIMA course, you will be awarded the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) title and you will also become a member of a global organisation powered by two of the world’s leading accounting bodies – AICPA (The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants), and CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants).
