About the course
Take control of your accountancy career and continue with your comprehensive study towards your CIMA Professional Chartered Management Accounting qualification. If you’ve reached this stage, you will know that you’re on the home stretch and all that’s left to complete is the trio of modules that make up the strategic level of the certificate. Stay motivated and continue with your studies with the E3 Enterprise Strategy course and you’ll be one more step closer to achieving this highly regarded industry certification.
Core Units and % Contributions
As with the other Professional Chartered Management Accounting courses you will have studied so far, the E3 course is split into individual units that each carry a particular percentage which contributes to the overall result. You can study for this module entirely online, at a convenient time to you, so that you don’t have to worry about finding time between your daytime commitments to attend study sessions and tutorials.
The aim of the E3 course is to advance your knowledge and skills so that you can design and implement strategies which can improve the performance of an enterprise. The course is broken down into interacting with the competitive environment (20%), change management (20%), evaluation of strategic position and strategic options (30%) and implementing strategic plans and performance evaluation (30%). Covering a variety of topic areas to ensure that your knowledge and expertise is comprehensive and thorough, you will walk away from the E3 course feeling more confident and competent within the subject area and will be ready to take the management accounting world by storm…just two more courses after this one and you will hold the highly-acclaimed CIMA qualification that you’ve been working so hard to achieve!
