Why 2 exams for CMA Vs. 20 exams on Indian CMA?





US professional qualifications “COMPLEMENT” UNIVERSITY EDUCATION – e.g., to be a CPA, CMA or CFA, you are required to have a university degree.

Hence, these qualifications are crisper, more objective and focus only on skill-gaps that are needed to be a F&A professional.

Indian (or even UK) professional qualifications tend to “SUBSITUTE” UNIVERSITY EDUCATION – e.g., to be a CPA, CMA or CFA, you are required to have a university degree.

Hence, these qualifications are lengthy and also encompass what a candidate would have covered (or simultaneously covers) in a university degree


Understand the CMA Designation

The Certified Management Accountant (CMA) designation is a highly respected credential awarded by the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) which is a US-based worldwide association for accountants and financial professionals working in business.

The CMA designation provides an objective measure of an individual’s knowledge and competence in the field of management accounting and financial management.


CMA in the Indian context


CMA is the US equivalent of the Indian Cost Accountant qualification from The Institute of Cost Accountants of India (formerly ICWAI).

CMAs have knowledge of:

  • Financial Planning and Analysis
  • Financial Management
  • Internal Controls
  • Risk Management
  • Cost Management
  • Performance Management
  • Decision Analysis
  • Professional Ethics

The credentials and knowledge base of a CMA is a big advantage when working with MNCs, financial services or consulting firms.
