CIMA numbers shrink
18 July 2017
The CIMA student population shrunk for the second year in a row, according to the latest annual report.
However, despite this, the institute added 33,604 new students in 2016, the second highest student recruitment year on record, and 12% higher than 2015.
CIMA student numbers were up ‘significantly’ in four markets. In India, 2,504 students signed up, an increase of 245%. In Indonesia 667 joined, an increase of 224% on 2015. Meanwhile, in Sri Lanka, 979 new students were signed up (a rise of 33%) and in China 304 students opted for CIMA (that’s up 16%).
However, CIMA lost students in Pakistan. Some 407 fewer new students there represent a fall year-on-year of 37%. In South Africa there was a 13% fall of 429 students.
