About the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants 

The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), founded in 1919, is the world’s leading and largest professional body of management accountants. As part of The Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (the Association) its members and students operate in 184 countries, working at the heart of business. CIMA members and students work in industry, commerce, the public sector and not-for-profit organizations. CIMA works closely with employers and sponsors leading-edge research, constantly updating its qualification, professional experience requirements and continuing professional development to ensure it remains the employers’ choice when recruiting financially-trained business leaders.

About the future of finance research 

Our Future of Finance research aimed to understand the management accounting community’s needs in a digital world and prepare the profession for the future.

Our goal was to bring together different organisational views, to understand, and build a composite picture of the role finance professionals play in business, identify competencies and skills employers expect, and map how these are changing in a digital world. 

Our findings have guided organisations through an extraordinary time of change, and ensure we provide members and students with the right skills and competencies to meet and go beyond the needs of the modern business world.
