CIMA expands presence in the UAE

The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) has expanded in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) by signing a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD).

CIMA said the implementation of its qualification as part of the university's programme would help students to be professionally qualified and fast track their careers.

The University of Wollongong in Dubai has more than 4,000 students from almost 100 different countries, according to CIMA head of Gulf Cooperation Countries Geetu Ahuja.

Ahuja added that CIMA sees the UOWD as a strategic partner "in improving the employability and success of students and graduates within the finance and accounting profession."

CIMA said the partnership with the UOWD is part of an ongoing initiative to reach out to larger student groups in the UAE, where it has already developed tailored professional qualifications in fields such as Islamic finance.
