CIMA puts ethics at the heart of its new syllabus.

It's official. The new-generation CIMA professional chartered management accounting qualification has been launched. After 18 months of intense research and development, the new syllabus was presented to tuition providers at a special "warm-up" conference held in London at the end of January.

The qualification will be examined for the first time in May 2005. It will place greater emphasis on ethics, corporate governance, human capital and soft skills such as analysis and negotiation. An exam on risk and control strategy has also been added.

Robert Jelly, CIMA's director of education, told the conference that the new syllabus was essential for the institute's students to stay ahead of the game. "Given the significant changes taking place in the business world, it is vital that CIMA keeps up to date with developments and provides the skills that employers are looking for," he said.

Jelly told delegates that the new CIMA syllabus would be one of the first to provide a global professional accounting qualification. "CIMA is proud, on behalf of its members and students, to he one of the first members of the International Federation of Accountants to launch this new-generation qualification," he said. "It will reflect best practice internationally and ensure that the CIMA qualification provides employers with leading-edge skills and a strong commitment to ethical practice."
