It now has 62,300 members, an increase of 21% since 1999.
Student numbers says CIMA have also risen to a record high of 81,500, which is a 4% rise on 2002.
The figures were published in the institute’s annual review for 2003.
Claire Ighodaro, the president of CIMA, said the rise in numbers was based on the institute’s determination to give the right training to its members.
‘CIMA’s overriding focus on accountants in business has continued to deliver the knowledge and skills needed to help its members drive many of the world’s successful organisations.
‘These figures are testament to our members’ and students’ increasing employability.’
