CIMA numbers clear 200,000

218,000 people affiliated to CIMA, with record student numbers

THERE ARE MORE than 200,000 people taking the CIMA qualification or qualified, with 33,500 new students joining the organisation in 2013.

The institute has seen record numbers of students in the UK, Malaysia, India, Russia and South Africa. Globally, 5,500 members were added in the year, with Chinese membership increasing by 40%. Some 218,000 people are now either qualified or taking the qualification.

Andrew Harding (pictured), managing director, CIMA, said: “I am delighted that we have continued to see strong growth in key and developing markets. This is further evidence that young people and employers across the world see CGMA as a vital designation for a successful career in business and finance.

“We are committed to helping people and businesses to succeed in a tough climate. It was particularly pleasing to see an increase in students in a number of emerging markets which will become future economic powerhouses.”

The 2013 Key Facts and Trends report by the Financial Reporting Council showed UK CIMA members numbered 72,053, from 60,870 five years earlier. Total membership is 91,744.

Following its joint venture with US institute AICPA, there are more than 130,000 people using the CGMA accounting designation between the two bodies.
