The CGMA University Program is implemented through selected courses at the Faculty of Management. It enables you to start studying the CGMA qualification as part of your degree, whether you are a full-time or part-time student. Students who complete all required courses are exempt from specific CGMA exams, and after passing the final external exam, they can complete one of the following CGMA levels:

  • Certificate Level — receive a CGMA Certificate in Business Accounting and the part-qualified designatory letters ‘CGMA Cert BA’ upon learning about financial aspects of business, the relationship between specific areas of accounting and the needs of modern business.

  • Operational Level — receive a CIMA Diploma in Management Accounting and the part-qualified designatory letters ‘CIMA Dip MA’ after passing this level with in-demand and applicable business skills. Topics include preparing financial statements, relevant information for management accounting and how to use appropriate decision-making tools using extensive knowledge about the functioning of a company.
