CMI has seen enormous growth in Asia and the Middle East in recent years, increasing its presence by 434% in year one and 126% in year two.

Of the approximately 10,000 members across the whole Asia and Middle East region, there are currently around 250 Chartered Managers across the Asia-Pacific region – Malaysia, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka and Singapore – and 100 CMgrs across the Middle East in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Omar and Qatar. The United Arab Emirates accounts for over 50% of CMgrs in the Middle East. 

“This journey of expansion into Asia and the Middle East is quite recent,” says Zain Manir CMgr FCMI, CMI’s head of international. “We’re in a really good space now. We work primarily with universities along with 80 education partners across the region.”
