Certified Management Accounting - Professional Certifications

Management Accounting Professional Certification (CMA)

"For 50 years, the CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) 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."

Delivered in a live-online format via Zoom, this two-part series prepares you for the Certified Management Accounting (CMA) exams. You don’t need to take Part 1 before Part 2, however, you will need to complete and pass both parts to become a CMA Professional.

To earn the CMA, you'll need to meet the following requirements:

  • Hold an active IMA membership
  • Complete and pass Parts 1 and 2 of the CMA Exam
  • Hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited college/university or a related professional certification
  • Abide by IMA's Statement of Ethical Professional Practice
  • Have two continuous years of professional experience in management accounting or financial management
