CIMA is the world’s leading and largest professional body of management accountants. The unique blend of management accounting, financial accounting and business-focused subjects offered by the qualified and experienced staff at St. Joseph’s College of Commerce and the acclaimed professionals produces competent and confident Chartered Global Management Accountants who can lead their organizations to sustainable success.

BBA (Professional – Finance and Accountancy) is integrated with CGMA Finance Leadership Program which is a digital-first learning program and is similar in scope plus rigor to a master’s degree. Students will learn the finance, business, digital, people and leadership skills that employers are looking for, today and in the future. The programme not only offers a thirteen-paper exemption from the regular CIMA papers but also gives an opportunity to students to gain qualifications like Diploma in Management Accounting and Advanced Diploma in Management Accounting as they pursue this program. It is mandatory for the students to take the CIMA Case study exams starting from the 4th semester.

The four-year BBA (Professional-Finance and Accountancy) programme follows the NEP programme structure as specified by the Government of Karnataka.
In this programme by the end of the fourth year, the student can emerge as a Qualified Chartered Global Management Accountant by successfully completing their CIMA case study exams.
