The last but the most significant hurdle, so near yet so far. Yes indeed, TOP CIMA remains the last barrier in attaining a reputed professional qualification in Management Accounting. The good news is that Achievers has been achieving considerable success in TOPCIMA. Achievers has committed a lot of resources to this end. It is backed by considerable research and delivered by Senaka Kakiriwaragoda, a lecturer who is without any doubt a leader in TOPCIMA. He is also part of an outstanding Strategic team of Achievers where he takes FS and combines with another reputed lecturer Jairaj Krishnakumar in taking Risk & Control who also takes Business Strategy.
The proof of our leadership in TOPCIMA is very obvious when we look at our long line of achievements. When Achievers started TOPCIMA in November 2006 there was a modest crowd but since then the numbers have grown in geometric progression. Is this not a clear indication that Achievers TOPCIMA is most desired by CIMA students?
Within a short space of time Achievers TOPCIMA has won several Sri Lankan prize winners. This demonstrates the quality of coaching for TOPCIMA at Achievers. Success at TOPCIMA revolves around the quality of analysis and the need to forecast probable scenarios. In this respect Achievers clearly dominates.
Achievers were the pioneers in Computer-based TOPCIMA which is gaining momentum and we will be committing more resources to this segment having been encouraged by the remarkable successes we achieved in Computer-based TOPCIMA.
Senaka Kakiriwaragodage needs no introduction. In him we have a quality professional whose analytical skills are very impressive to say the least. Precision analysis and simplification of complex issues enables students to grasp the key issues. Senaka brings a practical insight to the problems being involved in a job that requires very similar skills. Senaka is the Manager of the Corporate Advisory Branch of NDB Investment Bank, a leading investment bank in the country. He is engaged in a diverse range of transactions for the bank's clients such as project appraisals, raising equity and debt, business valuations, mergers and acquisitions, project financing and corporate restructuring. In a typical TOPCIMA case similar situations would be encountered.
At Achievers, students are encouraged to use their own experience to come up with their own creative solutions which are reviewed and tailored by our lecturer to meet the stringent demands of the TOP CIMA examiner. At least three mock exams are held and feedback is given which is a real confidence booster .
Remember, students are expected to have a very good knowledge of all three subjects at the Strategic level before they do TOPCIMA. Achievers students are fortunate in this respect in having a team of two of the most dynamic lecturers (Jairaj Krishnakumar and Senaka Kakiriwaragoda) to power the Strategic level.
Need we say more? Invest wisely.
Statistics are very impressive and clearly shows that TOPCIMA at Achievers is something special. It is unique and effective. TOPCIMA students are expected to have the integrated knowledge of the CIMA Strategic level to perform well in TOPCIMA. In this Achievers has a clear competitive advantage since it has the best panel for CIMA Strategic level in SriLanka comprising of Jairaj Krishnakumar and Senaka Kakiriwaragoda. Achievers has the largest number of CIMA Strategic level students in a single location in the World which shows the level of confidence students have placed in Achievers.
Results of Nov: 2008 for Strategic level and TOPCIMA are coming in. The feedback is very encouraging indeed. Students have obtained very high marks. Some of them had this to say. "I was impressed with Achievers computer-based TOPCIMA results. This indeed was the trigger that helped me to do so well"
"Everyone knows that Achiev
rs is the place for TOPCIMA. I received valuable support from Mr. Senaka"
"My marks in Financial Strategy is an inspiration for me to do TOPCIMA at Achievers"
Need we say more? The choice is yours. Make a wise decision.

"In addition to his exceptional lecturing skills, Senaka also took the extra effort to guide us not only within the classroom, but also by raising our industry knowledge and awareness. This gave us the extra edge to think beyond the set horizons of CIMA textbooks, and a good knowledge management culture was built among students. Mock exams were conducted and constructive, prompt feedback was given on an individual basis. I can vouch that it was this support and guidance that truly helped me in passing the Test of Professional Competence in Management Accounting (TOPCIMA) with such great results. Thank you Senaka and Achievers."

I achieved what I had to achieve at Achievers. It's indeed a wonderful place and a place that gave me all the assistance for my success at the recently concluded TOP CIMA May 2008. If not for Achievers I would not have achieved what I aspired for. Achievers is truly environmentally friendly and can boast of strong lecturers like Mr. Senaka Kekiriwaragoda, who had been instrumental not only for my success but the success of others who sat along with me. I sincerely thank Achievers, the management, the Lecturers specially Mr. Senaka Kekiriwaragoda and all others who helped me achieve my goal.
