CIMA expands into Middle East to meet its growing global demand

CIMA has expanded its global operations into the Middle East with the opening
of its first office in Dubai yesterday. The institute said it was responding to
the increased demand for international finance professionals throughout the
region.

The office will be based at the Dubai Women’s College, which is currently a
CIMA tution provider.

CIMA chief executive, Charles Tilley, said: ‘CIMA is delighted to be opening
this office in response to the needs of employers, members and students locally.
We believe Dubai will be a very important market for CIMA and its emerging
importance as a financial hub on par with London and New York means that finance
professionals who hold a global qualification such as CIMA are in great demand.’

The body has seen its membership grow 23% in the last five years with 98% of
its members working in business, and 52% employed by organisations with turnover
exceeding £50m.
