What is CIMA?
CIMA Sri Lanka

We began life as the Ceylon Association of the Institute of Cost and Works Accountants UK, in the year 1965. Throughout the intervening years, we've grown in parallel with advances in the corporate world. The "character and personality" of the Accountant has changed dramatically over time, and CIMA - Sri Lanka has led the process of equipping aspiring accountants with a cutting edge, international qualification, whilst supporting CIMA graduates with the tools required to hone their skills and knowledge further. CIMA Sri Lanka represents 8,862 students and 1,669 members (source: CIMA UK).
