The Test of Professional Competence in Management Accounting (TOPCIMA) is unlike any other CIMA exam. It needs a whole new approach to pass and Wisdom Business Academy is the best place to prepare for this challenging test of competency.

TOPCIMA is the final competency exam that students have to sit upon the completion of the strategic level examination and Wisdom Business Academy as the largest CIMA business school in Sri Lanka offers a dynamic lecturer with years of experience behind him to guide them to achieve the crowning glory of the CIMA education.
TOPCIMA is a unique exam which is known to be a qualification in competency and ability of skills and unique in its presentation. Further it is a test on theory and knowledge with an evaluation system and criteria that emphasises on professionalism.
Students sitting for the TOPCIMA exam are presented with a case study which is referred to as the pre-seen document (for September and November 2010 exams, the pre-seen is from TV production industry) before the exam which revolves around a specific company and its industry. At the exam the student is required to submit a management consultant report detailing a number of realistic and practical recommendations and submit constructive advice which can be implemented towards the development of the particular company under scrutiny.
The management consultant's report stimulates a real world business scenario where the students have to put their theory and practical knowledge to good use.
