Anyone Studying CIMA?

Hi Guys

I thought I would drop this in on the off chance that there are any CIMA studiers out there. I am due to take strategic in November and would be interested in starting up a study group as there appears to be no study/revision courses in this neck of the woods.

I hope I have put this is the correct forum, so apologies if not.

Polly

Re: Anyone Studying CIMA?

Just a question for those of us who don't know what a CIMA is - what is it? Obviously your post was aimed at those who are studying this, but there might be some head scratching going on out there.... Certified something is my guess.

No I haven't lost my ability to google, just thought I'd say it before someone else did Should it also be my job to google for the information from other people's posts and write it in?

Update: I googled and came up with:

Quote:
CIMA Carrier Interferometry Multiple Access (telecommunications)
CIMA Cayman Insurance Managers Association
CIMA Cayman Islands Monetary Authority
CIMA Cellulose Insulation Manufacturers Association
CIMA Centre Ivorien du Machinisme Agricole
CIMA Certified Investment Management Analyst
CIMA Chartered Institute of Management Accountants
CIMA Construction Industry Manufacturers Association
CIMA Cryptologic Intermediate Maintenance Activity
I admit that I only went to the first link which google turned up, which is what all the lazy people seem to do these days anyway.

I think my question is still a legitimate one

Re: Anyone Studying CIMA?

It's the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants. I never got any interest from their forum either, so I conclude that all jobs requiring the CIMA qualification in Zurich will be mine for the taking!!!

So sussing out the competition in that case Well you put "CIMA qualification in Zurich" close together in a message, so in a very short time you'll find those search terms on google will lead straight to this thread. Even if the people you are looking for are not on this forum, they soon will be

Re: Anyone Studying CIMA?

I am also studying CIMA, much to my chagrin. I am doing the second half of Managerial level in Nov though - so not much use...

To the rest of ye: if ye think that's a bit too much jargon, imagine attending a CIMA study group...

Re: Anyone Studying CIMA?

If anyone who is studying CIMA is interested in a career change, please drop me a priavte message.

I work for a Global company which is acquiring a company 30 minutes south of Zurich. I am just about to start the recruitment process for an accountant so let me know if you are interested and I will give you more details.

One requirement though will be the ability to speak German or Swiss German.
