Reimagine what is possible at ENGAGE EUROPE 2021

ENGAGE EUROPE 2021 is based around the five key knowledge areas of the CGMA Competency Framework: technical skills, business skills, people skills, leadership skills and digital skills. You’ll develop these practical skills sets, gain exclusive insights, earn CPD and network with your unique professional community over two exciting days.


The CGMA Competency Framework is designed to help management accountants and their employers understand the knowledge requirements and assess the skills needed for both current and desired roles. The framework is underpinned by the need for objectivity, integrity and ethical behaviour, and includes a continuous commitment to acquiring new skills and knowledge.

The CGMA Competency Framework is the foundation that will demonstrate the relevance and capabilities of a CGMA as a trusted finance and business strategist. The development of the CGMA Competency Framework was developed through three phases of research: face-to-face interviews, round tables and an online survey. The participants were finance and non-finance staff at mid to senior levels, from diverse industries in both the private and public sectors. A total of 130 organisations from across 14 countries participated in the face-to-face interviews. The round tables were held in 20 countries from Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas. Nearly 5,000 responses were received to the online survey, including CIMA members, employers, students, the wider finance community and academics.
