This is the final stage of CIMA’s CGMA® Professional Qualification, so are you ready to develop your leadership and strategic management abilities? At this level you’ll learn about risk management and financial strategy, and bring together everything you’ve learnt in the previous levels.
After completing this level, and with relevant work experience, you’ll be fully qualified, and can become a Chartered Management Accountant. You could be a Financial Controller, or Financial Manager, and earn over £60,000 a year – or more with experience.
You must have done CIMA’s CGMA® Management level to start this level.
By the end of the Strategic level you will have learnt about Strategic and Risk Management, as well as Financial Strategy.
The level is made up of three Objective Tests and a Case Study.
Objective Test subjects:
You’ll develop your skills and abilities to become an effective leader, so you’re able to both formulate strategy and to create the conditions for successful strategy implementation.
You’ll learn how to specify and manage risks that could affect a company’s strategies.
You’ll learn about different financial strategies that are open to businesses, and the factors that influence them.
As well as the Objective Tests, you’ll do a Case Study. This is where you’ll put your learning to the test with a real-life scenario. Using the skills gained during the level, you’ll resolve issues that a management accountant may come across at work.
Each subject is assessed by an objective test, and the level as a whole is assessed by a final Case Study.
The Objective Tests are computer-based and are 90 minutes each. The exams can be sat at any time of the year, and can be taken in any order. All assessments are marked by computer and you will be given a provisional result at the end of the exam. This will then be confirmed on your MY CIMA account within 48 hours.
The Case Study exam is three hours long and is computer-based. These exams are held in four exam sittings throughout the year. You must have passed all three Objective Tests before you can register to sit your Case Study exam. The exam is based on pre-seen material that will be released approximately seven weeks before the exam window. These exams are human-marked and your result will be released approximately five weeks after the exam window closes. Find out more information about
the exam dates and deadlines launch.
For the Objective Tests you need to get a scaled score of 100, with 150 being the maximum available.
For the Case Study exam you need to get a scaled score of 80, with 150 being the maximum available. You also need to be competent in all of the core activities at this level.
If you are unsuccessful in your first attempt, don’t worry you can resit your exam. For Objective Test subjects as these exams are on demand you can sit this as soon as you feel ready, for Case Study you will need to wait for the next quarterly exam sitting.
Log in your MY CIMA account and select ‘schedule your exam’. This will transfer you to the Pearson VUE website where you can select your exam, date, and time, and complete your booking.

After completing this level, the world is your oyster. You could start out as a Financial Controller or Financial Manager, but you could become a Chief Financial Officer (CFO). And with regards to salary, you’re looking at around £60,000 a year, but it will only increase with experience.
