Co-designed with the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), the Strategic Management Accounting programme from University College Dublin targets high-level graduates with a solid background in management accounting, financial accounting and reporting, finance, taxation or law.


The Strategic Management Accounting course from University College Dublin will equip you with a systematic and rigorous knowledge of management accounting within the context of strategic management.

Course features:

  • A demanding level – the demands are higher than the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants’ professional syllabus, providing as one of a select few programmes worldwide full exemption from all CIMA exams except the final integrated case study at CIMA strategic level and an invaluable management accounting specialisation upon successful completion.
  • A blended teaching approach – varied in-class methods (lectures, seminars, case studies, guest speakers from industry) provide a balance between theoretical learning and skill development, with top-class faculty and senior professionals ensuring the academic rigour and real-life relevance of the course content.
  • A mutual learning environment – small class sizes comprising graduates of diverse backgrounds, group work and case studies facilitate the study of issues of genuine market importance, with a clear emphasis upon team learning.
