The students of KIU with outstanding performance are eligible for the exemptions offered by CIMA. Further, the management accounting skills of the students are enhanced by giving global recognition as the global employers and the passed finalists of the CIMA have a high demand in the current competitive job market. Additionally, CIMA is the pioneer organization for Management Accountants, thus the students of KIU have a great opportunity to join the group of Management Accountants where the wages are above the industry average. This is one of the greatest achievements that KIU has obtained as a leading higher education partner in Sri Lankan private sector.
