When we make investments, be it in a business, buying a house or a car, we hope that our investments will result in significant benefits to us over a very long period of time. Similarly by investing in education, we hope that it continually provides us with an opportunity to grow and reach our fullest potential over our lifetime. It is often said that investing in education in terms of both time and money is one of the wisest decisions you can make.
Deciding on a career path for most of us can be an even more daunting task. Should I be a banker? Should I join my family business? Should I be an accountant or be involved with finance? Or do I want a career in Human Resources or General Management? These are some questions that race through our minds.
Whichever career you decide to pursue amongst the many options out there, it is important that you get the right qualification that will help you achieve your aspirations the quickest. Wouldn't it be great if you could just decide on one qualification that could possibly be useful in any business career, or any other career? The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) qualification does exactly that. The diverse nature of the prestigious UK qualification prepares students not just for a career in Accounting and Finance but for business as well. This qualification is not limited to commerce students alone. Over the years, we have seen many students who have followed Science, Maths and Arts streams also pursuing CIMA, since the diversity of this qualification will complement any other qualification you wish to undertake.
As important as deciding on the right qualification to pursue, it is equally important to find the right place to study at. This is a decision about your future and the best chance you have at being successful. Hence you have to choose simply the best!
Imperial College is the longest established Business School in Sri Lanka and a premier CIMA tuition provider. Imperial College's history exceeds 20 years, dating back to 1985 when it was founded as CBS, which was a pioneer in CIMA education in Sri Lanka. Imperial College was accredited by CIMA (UK) as a 'Learning Partner Institute' in 2004, making it one of the first institutes in Sri Lanka to receive this prestigious status, assuring the highest quality of delivery. Currently a leading provider in CIMA education, Imperial College has a reputation for providing exemplary tutoring from the Certificate Level through to TOPCIMA.
Imperial College rewards high flyers
Over the years, Imperial College has produced several World and Sri Lankan prize winners at CIMA examinations, having produced 17 World Prizes and 48 Sri Lanka Prizes, 3 of which were achieved at the November 2009 CIMA exams. The list of opportunities from Imperial College goes on. Students who produce exceptional results at local, Edexcel and Cambridge O/L and A/L exams are awarded partial scholarships to study CIMA at Imperial College. We don't just reward academic excellence, we also ensure that students who excel at extra-curricular activities are rewarded. Students who have demonstrated sportsmanship, dedication and commitment and the winners of the six a side cricket tournament were also awarded partial scholarships.
Proud sponsors of CIMA Spellmaster and revision programmes for local A/L 2010 students
Since the year 2009 was affirmed the year of English and IT, sponsoring the CIMA Spellmster Competition (which commenced in 2009) supported Imperial College in our stance of being a socially responsible institute with the commitment to develop the youth of Sri Lanka.
Imperial College awarded a Scholarship amounting to Rs. 160,000 for CIMA tuition to the winner. The 1st and 2nd runners up were also awarded scholarships amounting to Rs. 120,000 and Rs. 80,000 respectively. The 17 finalists were also awarded with scholarships to follow CIMA at Imperial College.
With a vision of nurturing the leaders of tomorrow, our boundaries are not limited to creating sound CIMA graduates. We aspire to develop the youth of Sri Lanka. This has led us to venture into assisting A/L students from all streams with their forthcoming examinations. Collaborating with CIMA Sri Lanka in sponsoring the revision seminars is just one step towards many we intend to take in order to ensure the youth of this country have access to countless opportunities.
Imperial College expands operations within Sri Lanka and Overseas
With the growing desire for education, Imperial College expanded its roots by opening a branch in Kandy earlier this year. There are many students who are either currently following CIMA in Kandy or are looking to pursue this dynamic qualification. Some of these students are unable to come to Colombo to follow classes; hence we decided to take Imperial College to them. With a view to educating students both locally and internationally, Imperial College has also formed joint associations with local CIMA tuition providers in Jaffna, Batticaloa, Trincomalee, Kurunegala and International partners in Bangladesh and China. The lecturers at Imperial College frequently visit India to conduct revision lecture and refresher courses for students in Bangalore.
Unrivalled study support
We have been commended for broadening students' exposure and enriching their learning experience. We impart on our students not only knowledge and skills but also creativity and intelligence in resolving problems and facing up to different situations. To achieve this we place great emphasis on an interactive teaching-learning process, strengthened by close lecturer - student relationships. Our team of dynamic and experienced lecturers are committed to academic excellence and relevant teaching, and students can approach any lecturer at any time to get additional guidance. We have created an interactive website and an online discussion forum whereby students can access various discussions and post questions they wish to have clarified. The entire learning environment is designed to be a true benefit to students. You can be sure of a challenging and fulfilling study experience with the expert tuition and support you will receive.
