Agreement of ICMA Pakistan and KAPLAN Publishing UK for Focused Study Material

Institute of Cost and Management Accountants of Pakistan

On behalf of the Council, I feel pleasure to share with Members, Students and other stakeholders of the Institute that ICMA Pakistan has entered into an agreement with M/S KAPLAN Publishing for the development of Focused Study Material for the newly launched curriculum of the Institute. Focused Study Material was long-awaited demand in the Institute to enhance the focus of students on core areas of learning and competency. Immediately after launching Syllabus 2012, Council put its focus towards the development of focused study material which was inevitable. Apart from receiving global acceptance, the objective was to develop contents which shall focus on prescribed course outlines. All leading professional accounting bodies of the world have their own study material and in order to compete, it was necessary that ICMA Pakistan should also have its material. It was a challenge that the material developed should first focus on prescribed course outlines and secondly be acceptable globally. It will also be given high value while approaching international accounting bodies for mutual recognition. The interest to develop the material was floated immediately after launching new Syllabus to attract reputable and experienced publishers to show their consent to become ICMA Pakistan partner in this project. We received various proposals from local and international publishers and after careful evaluation, the Council, finally selected M/s KAPLAN Publishing, UK as an official publisher of ICMA Pakistan. The profile of publisher is attached herewith for perusal. It is expected that focused study material in the form of “Textbooks and Revision Kits” will be delivered within a period of 3 to 4 months.
