What is Management Accounting?
Management Accounting is concerned with the ways in which accounting information is made available to managers within organisations to enable them to make informed business decisions. CIMA: Management Accounting combines accounting, finance and management with cutting edge techniques needed to run a business successfully.
Chartered Management Accountants help businesses to adapt to changing environments in order to maintain profitability and improve their value. They would perform financial functions while also providing information and advice to aid decision-making with regards to a company's future.
The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) is the world's largest professional body of management accountants and its qualifications are highly sought after in the field of Management Accounting. CIMA Global's members are qualified to work in various sections of an organisation, not only in finance, which certainly distinguishes prospective employees with CIMA qualifications from other applicants. The skills they are taught through CIMA studies include analysing information, formulating business strategies, identifying and managing risk, planning, budgeting, and communicating their findings to non-financial managers.
