Management Gateway Exam

With a SAIPA membership or MBA you can apply to enter the CIMA qualification at management level by attempting the Management Case Study Exam (also called the CIMA Gateway Exam). This exam will test your application based on the content from the management level papers E2, P2 and F2. 


SAICA Gateway Exam

SAICA members can enter the CIMA qualification at strategic level and have to sit the Strategic Case Study Exam. Depending on the experience, you may also need to pass the E3 (strategic management).
