Wednesday, 8 January 2014 00:00
Since its inception in 2001, the institute has provided CIMA education for 12 successful years and continues its journey as a preferred choice for students aspiring to gain the CIMA qualification.
Recently having launched the CIMA Plus Campus located at Hill Street Dehiwala, the institute provides coaching for all levels of CIMA, covering paper based and computer based exams. It offers all stages of CIMA. This includes full time, part time and also the fast track program.
Shehan Fernando, who is the course leader of Mercury CIMA Campus, speaking of what the CIMA professional qualification provides a student stated: “It is a unique set of skills that enables finance professionals to use the right information in the right way to make essential strategic decisions. Management accounting, financial accounting, strategy, risk management, economics and law are a few of the key subjects covered by the program. By completing certificate level, a student will receive a Certificate in Business Accounting, whilst completing operational level will provide them with the diploma in management accounting. Those completing the management level are awarded the Advanced Diploma in Management Accounting. Completing the Strategic Level and the case study, together with the relevant work experience will give them the opportunity of obtaining the prestige of being a member of CIMA that with its qualification being internationally recognised and renowned, will give these members the opportunity to enjoy careers that take them all over the world.”
Dilshad Jiffry, another lecturer at the Mercury CIMA Campus, added: “I can confidently say that CIMA is a qualification that prepares a student for a role that has a broad remit, which includes identifying and analysing information and using it to make business decisions, planning and budgeting, bringing the kind of knowledge that is ideal for multi-talented thinkers who want a role with real breadth, providing and strengthening their ability to move across all areas of the business. Therefore CIMA members are not confined to the finance function. Increasingly, they are being used as business partners. This means that they are working in a wide variety of roles to advise companies on how to focus on long-term success. This is why many CIMA members are in top jobs, becoming managing directors, chief executives and chairs.”
Backed by an experienced lecture panel, which has made it their mission to encourage their students to aim for first-time passes at every level, Mercury students today have been able to complete CIMA in just two-and-a-half years or even under, thus gaining a head start in their careers. Hence the reason that Mercury has become a unanimous decision of many discerning parents and students looking for the best standards in CIMA learning.
The many other factors that makes Mercury’s CIMA Plus Campus unique are its state-of the-art air-conditioned lecture rooms fitted with multimedia facilities, study rooms, lunch rooms and a fully-fledged computer lab, that is a licensed centre for CIMA computer based exams.
Mercury also has a policy of having a limited intake of students that ensures and enables one to one interaction by the lecturers with every student. They are also the only tuition provider to offer official study text books to all students at all levels free of charge.
Mercury CIMA Plus guarantees comprehensive syllabus coverage including revision and mock examinations as well as job placements in well-known corporates. Loan schemes, instalment and easy payment plans are also available for students who require making use of these facilities.
The next intake which is the registrations for the December and January has now commenced and Level 1 CIMA classes commenced in the first week of January. Scholarships will be offered to high-achieving students at A/Ls, O/Ls and any other academic achievement from school.
