CIMA Partnership

Private higher education provider Monash South Africa (MSA) and The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) formed a partnership to offer CIMA’s entry-level qualification, the CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting (CIMA Cert BA). The goal of the collaboration between MSA and CIMA is to influence the education and employment landscape in a positive way.

The dawning of the 4th Industrial Revolution continues to make waves and change paradigms as fast developing technology impacts the world’s current career options. Students must therefore be prepared by higher education to enter a job market constantly in flux, and must learn to be adaptable and tech-savvy in order to assure their employability.

As partners in education we:

  • Prepare students to enter a job market that has shifted into a knowledge-economy, where intellectual capital, emotional intelligence and understanding of technology set job seekers apart in the workplace
  • Support students to be sought-after by employers upon graduating
  • Contribute to the growth of professionals in the management accounting environment
  • Work towards improving existing curriculum and learning processes to make opportunities accessible to as many students as possible

The CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting (CIMA Cert BA) equips students with the core business and financial skills needed to boost employability or start a business and participate constructively in the economy. Students who successfully complete the qualification are well-equipped with business skills and can use the designation CIMA Cert BA.
