Record number of students join CIMA

THE CHARTERED INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTANTS has taken on a record number of students in the last year, with double digit growth in Pakistan, China and Africa

Overall, the institute took on 23,000 new students in 2010. The UK and Sri Lanka saw increased numbers of graduates and school leavers joining the institute. Pakistan’s student figures doubled for the second year in a row, and China’a student uptake increased 72% compared to the previous year.

Africa’s student numbers also grew 32% compared to the year before, as the institute continues to build its presence across the sub-Saharan region.

Andrew Harding, executive director of CIMA, (pictured above) said:”2010 has seen CIMA’s largest ever student annual intake and largest year-on-year rise to date.

“The figures go to show that in challenging economic times, ambitious graduates and school leavers across the world are taking no chances with their future careers and are choosing to study for a qualification that will equip them with the skills and expertise to become the business leaders of the future.”
