A CIMA case study

Page 6: Conclusion

Financial accountants maintain a business' balances and accounts. They keep the business records legal and financially stable.

Management accountants focus on forecasting. They have an exciting and forward-looking strategic role in many different types of organisations. They use various tools, such as ratio analysis and investment appraisal, to identify, measure and analyse the financial performance of a company.

Many CIMA-trained management accountants are at the heart of top businesses in a wide variety of roles, including financial analyst or finance director. They contribute to decision-making across the organisation. The analysis they provide is vital in taking a business forward.
