    Dear all, 


    I want to know if CIMA apart from being recognized by UK -NARIC  as Masters degree, is also equivalent to a 4 year old bachelors program. It is the requirement of major univeristies all around the world especiallytop business schools offering MBA toa admit candiadates from a business background. However they do not state candiates holding professional qualification can apply.

    I have received recently a demand from CIMA to pay the annual fee (£103 for me). I was a bit surprised but as I am a student I guessed this fee is for "allowing" me to sit exam.

    I spoke to my manager who is already fully qualified and it appears that he is paying about £210 every year for his annual fee. So I am wondering for which reason are we doomed to pay this fee for life as we have already paid for everything since we study? What is the service provided ?

    Hi guys,

    Looking for a bit of advice on continuing my studies full time in London and the college/CIMA partner that you would recommend. Please reply with personal experiences only as word of mouth at times can be misconstrued.  

    I am looking at LSBF, Kaplan and BPP at this stage.

    Who offers the best value for money and why?

    Does any 1 have any idea whether the dual programme (MBA + Advanced Diploma in Management Accounting from CIMA) is still continuing in India? I scanned over the CIMA website which spoke about  this but then it was mentioned that the last date for appication was on 16th August 2011. Hence following are my queries:

    1. Is ther any1 in this forum who have done/doing this dual programme?

    2. Is it still continued in India? if yes, please let me know the last date to apply? If no, then what is the reason?

    ACCA has just terminated opportunity for CIMA members to join ACCA directly without examinations. I have not gathered reasons for that except that ACCA states that it had the direct arrangement to small accounting bodies, for which it is clear that ACCA considers CIMA as a smaller accounting body.  One magazine pqmagazine has a heading that says CIMA is not equal to ACCA.

    I recently registered with CIMA and applied for Certificate paper exemptions, to my surprise I was awarded exemptions in all 5 papers. My exemptions were awarded due to my Business Management degree which I obtained in 2002.  Although it is a pleasant surprise, it has created a dilemma for me. Its been 10 years since I have studied Management Accounting (never worked in it). Although I believe I should be comfortable at these early stages, I don’t want to jump the gun or waste time (desperate for CIMA qualification to facilitate a career change)
