    I was just wondering if anybody knew what are the chances of moving into other/general management areas of a company if you've joined a firm as a graduate and gained your CIMA qualification? (I am talking here only about industry, not Big Four or anything like that)
    Does starting off in accounting limit you to that or do a lot of people from there move on into other roles?

    No CIMA people can move into any management role (though obviously other factors influence it too its not guaranteed)

    It doesn't limit you. A CIMA qualification would provide greater opportunities.

    also CIMA publish a booklet which explains how they are better than all the other accounting qualifications - seems a bit biased to me - but it helps to show how it is better in terms of management areas

    This?

    I suppose it's not surprising if it's a little biased - every institute will want its qualification to be seen as the 'best'! :p:
