Study CIMA’s CGMA FLP with FI

First Intuition is now offering the FI FLP Study Programme – a complete programme of study which will provide everything you need to complete the next level of CIMA.

What is CIMA’s CGMA FLP?

CIMA’s CGMA Finance Leadership Programme (FLP) offers a digital-first route to achieving the CGMA Professional Qualification.

The programme uses an alternative learning and assessment model, meaning students will only have the Case Study exams to complete.  The work you do on the platform will gain you “exemptions” from the Objective Test modules at Operational, Management and Strategic level.

Who is FLP for?

The programme is open to all students who want to gain a CIMA qualification.

At FI, we think FLP is best suited to:

✔️Experienced learners at senior levels who have a proven track record of delivering in the workplace, but would benefit from gaining a qualification.

✔️Experienced learners who are not eligible for an apprenticeship.

✔️Learners who can’t access the traditional exam route due to location, technology or personal circumstances.


How much does it cost?

The FI FLP course costs £2,750 + VAT for a 12-month subscription.

You’ll pay one price, whatever level you’re studying at. Please note: The FI FLP course is non-refundable.
