More than 5,700 new members join CIMA in 2012


KARACHI: The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) has announced record growth figures for 2012 as the Institute’s global footprint continues to expand. Over 29,000 new students joined CIMA last year, taking the total population of students and members to over 200,000. CIMA already the world’s largest professional body of management accountants, enjoyed massive growth in new and emerging markets.

A record number of new students in Poland and Russia chose CIMA whilst Bangladesh and Ukraine saw an increase of 303 percent and 235 percent respectively. Nigeria’s new student acquisition almost doubled in 2012. The Institute’s core markets also grew significantly with record numbers of new students and members in the UK and Sri Lanka and record numbers of students signing up in South Africa and Malaysia.

Andrew Harding MD CIMA said, “We have once again seen exceptional growth figures as ambitious school leavers, graduates and professionals identify CIMA as the global qualification which will best support their career ambitions.” CIMA has received extremely positive feedback from employers across the world. They recognise CIMA as having the most consistent standards worldwide, and as the most valued qualification in terms of mobility-both cross-departmentally and between countries.
