There has never been a better time to register with CIMA, a qualification which adds global recognition and facilitates career progression. CIMA is a versatile qualification; it offers a unique blend of technical accounting, people, business and leadership skills – applicable to any industry, opening up a variety of career roles. Companies around the world, from multinationals to start-ups, in the private and public sectors, employ CIMA qualified professionals. 

The CIMA syllabus is regularly updated after consultation with the world’s leading organisations to identify the skills that are sought after by employers to drive business success; and CIMA qualified professionals are empowered to add value to their respective organisations. 

The Certificate in Business Accounting (CertBA) is CIMA’s entry level qualification which offers a route to the CIMA Professional Qualification; the learning and skills that students develop will provide them with an excellent grounding of the fundamentals. CIMA’s assessments demonstrate that students have both the relevant theoretical and practical grasp to employers. Exams can be taken at students’ own pace, all around the year in any of the computer based assessment centres located in the country.

CIMA members have high visibility in senior management positions in Sri Lanka’s industry, commerce and business fraternity, with large numbers of CIMA members from the country residing overseas. With its joint venture partner the American Institute of Chartered Public Accountants (AICPA), CIMA has introduced the CGMA designation (Chartered Global Management Accountant) – which recognises professionals who meet the highest benchmark of quality, competency and integrity.CGMAs and CIMA students operate in 176 countries at present. 

Last year, members of CIMA and AICPA endorsed the creation of a new Association, which was launched in January 2017. The new Association aims to become the most influential professional accounting body in the world, and will represent 600,000 current and next-generation professionals.
