New chairperson of the CIMA local Governance Board Shiromi Rajendra told the Business Times that this new initiative will benefit CIMA students as they will be provided with on the job training and remuneration. It is also beneficial for the corporates from CIMA’s high brand recognition and compatible professionalism and values. The participating companies will be able to make use of CIMA students who are to receive internationally recognized professional qualification in Management Accountancy which focuses on accounting for business.

She said that CIMA will soon hold discussions with ‘top shelf’ companies to get their consent for the implementation of the student internship programme. “The young and talented workforce of Sri Lanka is proving to be a major national asset as global business searches for talent,” Ms Rajendra said. She added that CIMA has a long history in the country and its qualifications have enabled thousands of Sri Lankans to have rewarding careers with reputable businesses both at home and abroad. CIMA student base is now around 13,000.

She noted that CIMA Sri Lanka is continuing to support the ambitions of young Sri Lankans. In 2010 CIMA training was launched in Jaffna, Trincomalee and Batticaloa to ensure that education opportunities are available as people in those areas rebuild their lives. The Sri Lanka Board ensures that CIMA’s work in the country is relevant and focused, she said.

Ms Rajendra was inducted as the new chairperson of CIMA local Governance Board by the outgoing chairman Sutheash Balasubramaniam, at a ceremony held in Colombo last week. This Board will advice on the delivery of CIMA's corporate strategy to grow and serice students and members in Sri Lanka.
