Each Profession is unique and let us not compare one with another. The opinions are provided without going into the details of the syllabus and extent of coverage of those Syllabus
ICWA - More emphasis on Cost Accounting
CA- More emphasis on Financial Accounting
CIMA - More emphasis on Management Accounting
The kind of Questions they test your knowledge is also very different in all three professional qualifications.
Hence please look into each profession from the core area which it addresses and whichever gives you more interest in studying , you can study them
CIMA enhances our career in terms of recognition,betteremploybility,wider platform to work,go for global and last but not the least good salary(which is very important).By doing CIMA we AICWAs not enhancing much in terms of learning,ruther passing ICWA or CA(India) is difficult compared to oversease Accounting bodies,but our Indian Accounting bodies not properly marketed themselves.
It would be a great benefit from both professional and employment point of view.
CIMA is the most sought after qualification in the UK and has very high standards. As management accountatants, we are required to excel in the subject we deal in and this will not only be helping us to improve our skills but also to upgrade ourselves for the big league.
A superb opprtunity. I shall be taking up this course after almost 20 years of my career.
