AUD is granted eleven exemptions by CIMA, based on the School of Business Administration’s comprehensive syllabi, for their global certifications, a significant added value for students.
AUD students in all Bachelors of Business Administration (B.B.A.) programs are offered exemptions in attaining CIMA Diploma’s after graduation, based on the number of related courses they have completed in their majors thanks to the current programs strength and incorporation of CIMA required studies.
