Under the MoU, CIMA will award advanced standing credits to graduates of WOU’s Bachelor of Business in Accounting (Hons), whereby they will be exempted from five subjects for now when pursuing the CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting.

In return, CIMA students and members who enter WOU programmes will be given advanced standing credits appropriate to their level of attainment. WOU can also register as a ‘CIMA Learning Partner’ to offer the CIMA Professional Qualification to its students. Other areas of cooperation are:

  • Provide each other technical advice and assistance on all areas of joint collaboration. 
  • Offer CIMA 1st – initial pathway towards the studying of the CIMA programme – to WOU students from any discipline. Benefits to students who join CIMA 1st include free access to learning resources at the CIMA Malaysia office, bi-monthly newsletters containing news about CIMA, preferential rates at training courses, and membership to the CIMA Malaysia Toastmasters Club.
