The CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting (Cert BA) is CIMA’s entry level qualification which can be taken as a standalone qualification, whilst also offering a route to becoming a Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA). The Certificate in Business Accounting (2011 syllabus) examinations will be available until 10 January 2017. Examinations based on the Certificate in Business Accounting (2017 syllabus) will commence on 11 January 2017.
