CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting


The CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting is CIMA’s own entry route to the CIMA professional qualification and is ideal for anyone who is new to the concept of management accounting. Its aim is to ensure you understand the regulatory framework for accounting, how formal business relationships are established and the economic environment in which organisations operate. The Certificate in Business Accounting will also introduce you to the concept of management accounting and cover quantitative statistical analysis methods that will be used by a Chartered Management Accountant.

The Certificate level is made up of five subjects. Upon completion students are awarded the CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting and receive the letters CIMA Cert BA.  As the number and sequence of subjects taken is completely flexible, students are advised to seek advice from tuition providers to recommend a study plan that best suits their circumstances. It may be advantageous to have completed some subjects prior to studying others – but you do not have to follow any particular sequence. Are there any prior minimum qualifications before I start? You don’t need any formal qualifications to start this level. You will need a good understanding of both English and maths and a passion to succeed in business. If you have any previous accounting experience you might be eligible for exemptions from subjects at this level.

Please log in to your MyCIMA to see whether you are eligible for any exemptions. What will I learn? The certificate level consists of five subjects:

  • C01 Fundamentals of Management Accounting
  • C02 Fundamentals of Financial Accounting
  • C03 Fundamentals of Business Mathematics
  • C04 Fundamentals of Business Economics
  • C05 Fundamentals of Ethics, Corporate Governance and Business Law
