    Financial Managers/Controllers typically have studied the CIMA (management accounting qualification).

    Of course, it's not an absolute necessity, ACA accountants with the relevant experience can slip into the role of a financial manager but since you are looking for something specific, the CIMA would be the way to go. Learn more here: http://www.cimaglobal.com/About-us/C...nance-manager/

    In regards to the AAT, it is quite preliminary in relation to the CIMA/ACCA/ACA/CIPFA etc. You would be unlikely to become a finance manager with an AAT alone.

    Yes of course, are you at college? If you have done an accounting A-Level then you can dive straight into ACCA/CIMA etc.

    If you have no prior experience of accounting before, then I recommend the AAT to strengthen your foundations and learn the basic principles of accounting, after which you can start the ACCA/CIMA etc.


    Remember, the AAT, A-Level or even a Degree is not necessary to start a CIMA/ACCA but it will help to get you off the ground. For more information, please do consult someone/or an organisation to clarify your doubts.
