This tool will give you an overview of the CIMA Code of Ethics, the importance of ethics in the workplace, and how ethical considerations may appear in the CIMA exams. The material in this tool draws from past exam papers and information in the Code.

A new ethics scenario tool that helps users comply with ethics standards and “shows professionals how to do the right thing.” CIMA created the tool in part as a response to a CGMA (a joint initiative of the American Institute of CPAs and CIMA) survey that revealed that nearly 25% of global respondents work for an organization that “suffered from a serious reputational failure.”
Watch these highlights from the CIMA and AICPA panel discussion 'The future of ethics' in association with The Accountant. Hosted by Nicola Maher, Editor, The Accountant, the expert panel including Jeff Kaye, Simon Webley, Brian Walsh, Nina Barakzai, Margaret Fowler, Professor Colin Fisher and Tanya Barman, discuss ethical culture, accounting for ethics, dilemmas, pressures and business issues.
