Advance Further in Management

CImA members can now benefit from a partnership with the prestigious Henley Management College. Henley have recognised the value of the ACMA qualification by offering members a fast track route to their world renowned MBA.

CImA members who meet Henley's entry criteria will gain over 50% exemption from the Henley MBA. Henley's commitment and relevance within business today provides an excellent match for CImA members eager to continually develop within executive senior management roles.

The Henley MBA will provide CImA professionals with:
