CIMA has established a centre of excellence (COE) for Australasia in Sydney. The COE will collaborate with universities, the public sector and key industry players in this region. They will ensure the areas of research and related outputs are market driven and relevant.
Outputs will include research reports and cutting edge tools and techniques that will address issues raised by the industry. These solutions will be vital in guiding critical business decisions and driving strong performance in financial and operational reality.
The research, which will be led by CIMA, will help to develop the CIMA brand within the accounting field in this region. It will also increase awareness of the benefits of using management accounting tools and concepts to gain competitive edge. CIMA will therefore have a better understanding of employers’ needs in the region and be able to develop a truly global industry relevant syllabus and CPD resources appropriate for local use.
There are two different research grant schemes in 2016: one for early careers researchers with a mentor, and one for experienced academics and practitioners.
