Achievers has consistently proven itself as a leader in the field of education by producing high achievers at all levels of CIMA. The table shows what students at Achievers have achieved in the recent past.
This amazing performance is purely attributed to Achievers’ and probably Sri Lanka’s best panel of lecturers. They have been largely responsible in bringing Achievers to its current position as the undisputed leader in CIMA education. During the four years since inception Achievers has attained a number of milestones.
Its student population growth is unprecedented and unmatched, it has achieved the largest share of CIMA prize winners for the last three consecutive sessions and over 50 % of CIMA graduates passing out each year are from Achievers, and the icing on the cake is that in all it produced 9 out of 11 CIMA prize winners in the latest May 2010 examination.
Lecturing is a passion at Achievers, which is extremely examination focused and strives continuously to achieve higher standards of quality in CIMA education. Achievers’ panel of lecturers is fully supported by a student development centre to cater to the personal needs of students.
Achievers’ pass rates have consistently exceeded Sri Lankan averages. Students’ perception of Achievers is very favourable and this is clearly evidenced by the large number of high achievers from Ordinary and Advanced Level examinations joining Achievers Lanka Business School
Achievers takes great pains in personalising its Foundation course to lay a solid foundation for new students. This is yet another reason for the great success of Achievers at managerial and strategic levels. The CIMA Foundation panel blends young talent with experience. Achievers has young, talented lecturers such as Azad, Mayooran and Shehan blending with the senior and experienced lecturers in the calibre of Ravi Edirisinghe and Rumy Sakkaf.

Thereby, Achievers provides the ideal opportunity for youngsters who have completed the O/L exams to fast track their career and complete their professional education within the least possible time span.
Achievers CIMA Foundation is very versatile, flexible and quality focused. Achievers’ CIMA Foundation is unique in that every student is given personal attention and goes through a process of quality validation through a series of mock exams.
