    Resolve to be a US CMA in 2022.

    Pass 2 exams in 6-9 months.

    BE A FUTURE-PROOF FINANCE PROFESSIONAL

    CMA (Certified Management Accountant) is a globally recognized management accounting credential offered by IMA (Institute of Management Accountants), US.

    The CMA certification has been the global benchmark for management accountants and financial professionals. Why? Because CMAs can explain the "why" behind numbers, not just the "what." And that can give you greater credibility, higher earning potential, and ultimately a seat at the leadership table.

    With academic content organized over just 2 exam parts and the designation achievable over less than 9 months, the CMA designation offers an extensive value proposition:

    Why Only 2-4 exams for
    US CPA/CMA certifications?

    • US professional qualifications “complement” university education – e.g., to be a CMA, CPA or CFA, a university degree is mandatory
    • Therefore, these are crisper in content and focus only on skill-gaps that are needed to be a F&A professional
    • Designed to be pursued alongside a full-time job and to facilitate the career progression for professionals
    Why Only 2-4 exams for US CPA/CMA certifications ?
    • Various non-US professional qualifications tend to “substitute” university education – e.g., you can be a CA in many countries without any university education
    • Therefore, these are lengthy and also encompass what a candidate would have covered (or simultaneously covers) in a university degree
