CIMA is the leading and largest professional body for management accountants with over 171,000 members and students operating at the heart of business in 165 countries. CIMA's mission is to be the first choice for employers in the qualification and development of management accountants. Young people obtain the CIMA qualification and then membership for many reasons. Some want a career in accountancy but do not just want to work with numbers. They look for management and leadership roles where they can contribute to business performance. Others are already managers in business but want to improve their skills in financially-based decision making. CIMA people are financially qualified business leaders and are not limited to working in accountancy practices and finance departments.
