The CIMA Strategic level is the final level of the CIMA Professional Qualification and it consist of three subject areas and a Case Study. The three subject areas / Objective Tests subjects are:

  • E3: Strategic Management
  • P3: Risk Management
  • F3: Financial Strategy

The Strategic level focuses on long term strategic decision making. Candidates will be able to support organisational leaders to craft strategy; evaluate and manage risks that might prevent organisations from successfully implementing strategy; value organisations; and source financial resources required to implement strategy.

CIMA Strategic Level Exams

The CIMA Strategic level Objectives Tests Exams – CIMA E3, F3 and P3 exams can be sat in any order but you may only sit for the CIMA Strategic case study exam after passing all these 3 OT modules. We recommend Students to take E3 & P3 1st and then F3 in the following semester.

Upon passing all the 4 exams (CIMA P3, E3, F3 & Strategic Case Study) and successful completion of the CIMA Practical Experience Requirements (CIMA PER), students will be admitted to associate membership and granted the Associate Chartered Management Accountant (ACMA) and Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designations which is SAQA and QCTO registered at NQF level 8.

CIMA Finance Leadership Programme – CIMA FLP Program If you opt to study through the CIMA Finance Leadership Programme (CIMA FLP program) in South Africa, then you will not sit for the OT exams but rather be assessed continuously while you learn (instead of taking objective tests). This means you will then only need to sit for and pass the CIMA Strategic Case Study Exam to be awarded a QCTO Occupational Certificate: Chartered Management Accountant
