CIMA joins Finance Indaba 2017
The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) has become the latest partner to join Finance Indaba 2017, following on from its exhibition at this year’s event. The world’s leading and largest professional body of management accountants, CIMA's qualifications comprise a unique blend of management accounting, financial accounting and business-focused subjects to produce graduates capable of leading from the front.
Early in November, Cima president Andrew Miskin was appointed as the first chair of the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants, a new global accounting association that will be formed early next year by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and CIMA. Miskin will continue to serve in his presidential role concurrently.
"CIMA provides skills which encompass a mix of operations, management and strategy to drive sustainable business success and create value by applying leading edge techniques with a commercial and forward looking focus. The CIMA qualification provides an in-depth understanding of business to allow quick adaptation to the changing needs of organisations," said the head of the organisation's South African chapter Zahra Cassim.
The Finance Indaba is the biggest annual event on the continent for financial managers and specialists who are seeking partnerships to drive progress. Thousands of delegates will gain valuable insights into realising financial performance and growth, becoming more efficient and accessing funding, among a host of other opportunities from leading players in financial services.
