The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) Africa and the
Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) have announced the
completion of processes that would lead to signing of a Memorandum of
Understanding to enable ICAN members complete an accelerated route to
earn the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation.
An event to formalize the signing of the MOU between the two bodies has

Professional Accountants which is the new global organisation formed by
CIMA and the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), CIMA is working to
equip finance professionals with the education and resources they need to
go beyond for the future”, the statement read.
