Purpose

The purpose of this qualification is to provide students with the necessary knowledge to undertake highly-skilled professional work in the disciplines of management accounting and finance. The programme is comprised of a broad-based curriculum to prepare the postgraduate student for a wide range of finance-related specialities. The programme emphasises application, analysis and evaluation within each topic area as well as the application of integrity and ethics in a professional environment. Mastering of the curriculum will provide students with the skills to synthesize complex management, financial, performance and risk principles in order to drive and add value to the entities that employ them. The successful student will gain an overall financial and business perspective which will provide them with a competitive advantage for employment.

The qualification is aligned with the competency framework and curriculum requirements of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). Students that complete the PGDip (Financial Management) will be prepared to write the CIMA professional qualification exams that lead on to an Associate Chartered Management Accountant / Chartered General Management Accountant (ACMA/CGMA) designation.


Admission Requirements

A potential student must be in possession of a Bachelor of Commerce qualification or an Advanced Diploma in Financial Management and should have obtained a final mark of at least 55% for both Accounting and Financial Management (Finance as well as Cost and Management Accounting) assessed at NQF level 7. The department may require the completion of a bridging programme should students not comply with the rules of access regarding the pre-requisite subjects. Students will further be subjected to a selection process as set and applied by the Department of Accountancy.
