09 July 2008
The CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) professional qualification is equivalent to a Master Degree, the independent UK agency responsible for government scoring of immigrants’ qualifications has said.
A point score of 35, the same as an MSc, has been awarded to the CIMA professional qualification by UK NARIC, the independent body that assesses and scores qualifications from around the world. The UK government uses this information on its official database to benchmark qualifications held by potential immigrants to the UK under its highly skilled worker programmes.
Robert Jelly, CIMA’s Director of Education, commented, ‘CIMA is delighted to be awarded this rating by an independent body that objectively ranks the value of various qualifications. This shows the prestige the CIMA professional qualification holds in the UK and throughout the world and demonstrates the portability of the qualification, enabling individuals to work and study wherever they wish.
‘It is further proof of the relevance of the CIMA qualification to business and the strategic value our members add to organisations. We are pleased to see CIMA achieve this further recognition from an authoritative UK government agency.’
The National Recognition Information Centre for the United Kingdom (UK NARIC) is the national agency providing the sole British official source of comparison information and advice on international education and training systems and overseas skills and qualifications.
It is part of a wider network of information centres (ENICs) across Europe and also including Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA. It helps individuals and organisations understand qualifications and skills from across the globe enabling pursuit of employment and education opportunities in the UK. -CIMA GLOBAL
CIMA exams pass muster
2nd June 2008
It was all quiet on the CIMA exam front this May, according to PQ Magazine's panel of experts
It was all quiet on the CIMA exam front this May, according to PQ Magazine's panel of experts. Students should have been happy with paper P1. Section A was as diverse as ever, but the big problem with this paper is time management and that was again an issue in May. There were no nasty surprises in paper P2. Unfortunately, pass rates in P4 and P8 are predicted to fall. For all the latest insight see the next issue of PQ Magazine (July 08).
