(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants' (CIMA) revised syllabus will come into effect from January 2015.

On Thursday, CIMA organised an open session for professionals based in Oman to discuss what they feel should be done to produce better professionals. The session also provided an opportunity for the professionals to put forward their concerns regarding the new syllabus.

Shane Balzan, head of syllabus development, CIMA, said, ''Degrees with the previous syllabus will remain valid. We have also decided to increase the number of exam attempts. Earlier professionals could write exams twice a year.
With the current system, the first level can be cleared at any point of time and other levels can be cleared as soon as the candidate considers himself prepared.''

CIMA offers a three-level course - strategic, management and operational - with nine papers to write.

Courses can be done online and CIMA also has centres across the region that provide guidance.

Balzan said that CIMA is very much in tune with current needs of the market. ''The open session gave us an opportunity to understand concerns regarding the revised syllabus. The new syllabus is not revolutionary, but evolutionary. The revision follows an evolved knowledge on the market demands.''

Bazlan said that CIMA is working on a syllabus for students in Oman. ''We understand the needs of the region and as per the demand. We will help professionals learn and grow. Positive growth in professional life contributes towards a positive growth in personal life.'
