TopCIMA Discussion March 200927 Jan. 2010 by admin

CIMA in con­junc­tion with FAT Train­ing CC hosted a TOPCIMA dis­cus­sion at the Uni­ver­sity of Johan­nes­burg on Sat­ur­day 28 March 2009. The dis­cus­sion, which was open to all stu­dents writ­ing the TOPCIMA paper in May was hosted free of charge and was attended by a total of 49 stu­dents from and around Gauteng.

The May 2009 TOPCIMA case focused on a fic­ti­tious mobile phone com­pany called Dizz. Mer­gan Pil­lay (ACMA, CA(SA), MBA) from MTN vol­un­teered to lead the TOPCIMA dis­cus­sion. Mergan’s pre­sen­ta­tion included:

  1. A dis­cus­sion of the back­ground to the mobile phone industry;
  2. An expla­na­tion of the key data and ratios used in the indus­try; and
  3. High­light­ing the chal­lenges and risks fac­ing the mobile phone indus­try currently.

This is the sec­ond TOPCIMA dis­cus­sion that CIMA and FAT Train­ing CC have hosted together and accord­ing to the feed­back from stu­dents who have attended, it seemed to be a resound­ing suc­cess. CIMA and FAT Train­ing CC plan to con­tinue this unique oppor­tu­nity in future, when­ever pos­si­ble.
