CIMA Professional Development Modules
Professionals who wish to gain the CIMA qualification itself can study the CIMA professional development modules* through Aberdeen Business School.
We have worked closely with the Chartered Institute of Management Accounting (CIMA) to develop our "degree with CIMA" programmes. These include the BA Accounting (with CIMA Advanced Diploma) and MSc Strategic Accounting (with CIMA) both of which are delivered online through supported distance learning.
The CIMA professional development modules are also available to study online. Please see the following sections for full information.
