New gateway to the CGMA

CIMA and CIPFA have agreed a new ‘CPFA to CGMA Top Up through the CIMA Gateway’.


January 2017

This fast-track path allows qualiifed CIPFA members to enhance their qualification and gain full CIMA membership and the globally recognised Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation.
The new route is open to both UK and international CIPFA members.
CIPFA members can benefit from up to 14 exemptions with the new CIMA Gateway route. After passing the Gateway exam (also known as the Management Case Study exam) they can move on to the Strategic Case Study exam, bypassing the three Strategic level OTs. In addition, CIMA says CIPFA members will have access to a wide range of student benefits and study support through CIMA’s online student community CIMAconnect.
CIMA CEO Andrew Harding said: “CIMA is excited about the growing collaboration with CIPFA. We are delighted to share our expertise and knowledge and to enable CIPFA members to gain our globally-recognised qualification.”
CIPFA’s CEO, Rob Whiteman, said: “This landmark offering provides CIPFA members with a fantastic opportunity to build their management accounting skill set.”
