About the course

BA1 Fundamentals of Business Economics

This focuses on the economic and operating context of business. In particular, how the factors of competition, behaviour of financial markets and government economic policy can influence an organisation. It also deals with the information available to help managers, in order to evaluate and forecast the behaviour of consumers, markets and the economy in general.

The CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting (Cert BA) is aimed to help future professionals with limited accounting experience. The Cert BA syllabus provides the perfect platform towards a successful career in business and finance. It features four exams, with a focus on core business and finance skills beyond fundamental financial accounting.

The Cert BA is a qualification in its own right. It also provides a formal entry route into the CIMA Professional Qualification.
