CIMA is worthless in Pakistan. If you intend to work in here and make a career in management accountancy than it is better to do ICMA from here. If you interested in working abroad like UK than its better to do it from there because there are some differences in papers. If you do ICMA remember that they are not trained to be auditors. Now you can make a choice.

Althogh ACCA has some worth in local job market but CIMA has no worth in the job market of Pakistan. If you want to start your career as cost and management accountant then take admission in ICMA. I have seen many CIMA qualified who do ICMA to get good job.
