Curriculum

The CMA Certification Exam has changed from a 4 part exam to 2 exam parts. The organization of the new two-part exam more closely aligns with the knowledge, skills and abilities that an accountant or financial professional in business uses on the job today – financial planning, analysis, control, and decision support. These skills are critical to the success of finance teams. The CMA exam updates will allow an employer to more readily understand the applicability of the CMA to a corporate career path and allow the candidate to more efficiently demonstrate the skills evidenced by the CMA. The goal of the new CMA program is to ensure that the CMA remains the most appropriate designation in the world for accountants and financial professionals working in business.

For individuals that have questions regarding the transition please contact IMA Customer Service at 1.800.638.4427 or visit www.imanet.org  for further clarification as to your exam status
