The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), and The Canadian University of Dubai (CUD), today announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) that will allow students to develop proficiency in business and finance and gain global accreditations.
This agreement also offers CUD students pursuing their BBA and MBA degrees to pursue CIMA’s global qualification simultaneously and be double qualified. Not only do CUD graduates receive a solid grounding in the fundamentals of business and accounting but it also gives them an advantage to be professionally qualified and fast track their careers as soon as they graduate.
Commenting on the MoU, Prof. Karim Chelli, President, The Canadian University of Dubai said, “Our agreement with CIMA is a step forward in helping our students succeed in the business world. The CUD degree combined with the knowledge gained from CIMA’s certification in finance and business will prepare them for leadership roles.”
CIMA offers the most relevant globally recognised business and finance qualification. The qualification focuses on business performance, management and finance, giving students an advantage to be placed across any business. By the time the students graduate, they are not only financially qualified but also professionally trained in business management, capable of advising on business strategy and risk management.
Geetu Ahuja, Head of GCC, CIMA, said, “We are seeing a growing interest from students in the UAE who are keen on building a career in business and finance. From an employer’s perspective, there is a strong emphasis on recruiting qualified professionals to fill a number of key management positions in the region. For them a qualification such as that from CIMA is the most relevant as it prepares students to lead and drive business forward on a strategic level.”
CIMA is the largest professional body in the world focused exclusively on management accounting and currently has 203,000 members and students operating at the heart of businesses in 173 countries.
