Benefits of US CMA Certification

us cma certification

CMA USA is one the most complete CMA USA courses. Thousands of candidates from across the globe complete this course and get certified each year. CMA USA online classes from Finspire will help you achieve your dream career.

Improve your grades, experience and career prospects with a US CMA Certification from Finspire Academy.

Frequently Asked Questions - CMA (USA)

  • CMA (Certified Management Accountant) certification has been the global benchmark for management accountants and Financial professionals. The CMA is an advanced professional certification designed to measure the Management Accounting and Financial Management skills. This is especially relevant for success in a current business environment.
  • The US CMA certification is governed and awarded by the IMA (Institute of Management Accountants) in the USA. 
  • The US CMAs are similar to the Cost Accountants in India.

Thanks to the advent of Internet and Globalization, the entire globe has become one market place.  The world has effectively shrunk with the geographical boundaries losing its meaning for doing business.   In this changing scenario it is important that a finance professional also is capable of playing the game with the newly defined rules than just the old ones.  CMA perfectly fits to this need and is important on account of the following:

  • International credibility and recognition
  • Strong knowledge base in Management Accounting and Financial Management
  • Significant career development opportunities
  • Yes. Management Accounting and Financial Management skills do not differ majorly on a global perspective.   The skill sets of such professionals are in demand all across the globe and India is certainly no exception.   Thus, US CMA is and will be one of the most sought-after professional qualifications not only for the Multi-National Companies in India but also for Indian Companies of repute as a qualified US CMA will be able to add a lot of value to them.

  • Considering the fact that the curriculum is updated every 5 years one can safely presume that what is relevant is what is being learnt and hence the CMA Certification does carry a lot of value not only in India but across the globe.

CMA is perfectly suited for the following categories of candidates: –

  1. Candidates who have completed their Class 12.
  2. Candidates who have completed their B. Com or any other degree with or without work experience.
  3. Candidates who have not been able to clear their CA Intermediate exams or any other professional exams.
  4. Candidates who have completed their degree and are working in an organization with an ambition to become professional accountants.

One should pursue the CMA immediately after Class 12 for the following reasons:-

  • Get an early start to one’s career.
  • Become financially independent sooner than your peers do.
  • Wider scope to explore one’s skills with global opportunities.

To be eligible for earning the Certification a candidate must fulfill the following requirements:-

  • Payment of Entrance fees at the time of registration.
  • Payment of yearly membership fee and be an active member of the IMA.
  • Passing both parts of the CMA Examination.
  • Fulfilling the educational qualification requirements (a degree from an accredited University).
  • Complete two continuous years of professional experience in management accounting and/or financial management. This requirement may be completed prior to or within seven years of passing the examination.
  • Comply with the IMA Statement of Ethics for Professional Practice.

Eligibility for doing CMA can be divided into two components as under:-

Eligibility for taking up the exams

A pass in Class 12 or equivalent is sufficient to take up the exams. Thus, anyone pursuing any graduation can take up the exams.

Eligibility to earn the certification.

After successfully completing the CMA exams and on fulfilling certain requirements (Ref FAQ No. 6) specified by IMA, one can get the certification and is eligible to officially use the title US CMA after his or her name.

  • CMA certification requires completion of the following two parts:
    • Part 1 – Financial Planning, Performance and Analytics
    • Part 2 – Strategic Financial Management
  • Each exam part consists of 100 multiple choice questions and two descriptive type questions.  
  • The candidate will have 3 hours to complete the MCQs and 1 hour to complete the essay questions.   
  • The descriptive section opens up upon completion of 3 hours and when a candidate has answered at least 50% of the MCQs right.  In case the candidate has not, the descriptive section does not open up and the candidate is declared unsuccessful.
  • In case the candidate completes the MCQ section earlier than the allotted time of 3 hours, the unutilized time is carried forward for the descriptive section.
  • All scores are expressed as scaled scores ranging from 0 to 500 with the passing score being 360.

The CMA examination consists of 2 parts and the competencies covered along with the weightage for each competency is as under:-

Part-1 – Financial planning, Performance and Analytics

Topics Covered & Weightage

  • A freshly qualified US CMA professional will be sought after by both MNCs in India and also companies of repute since they know the value-add that a CMA can bring to the table.
  • The candidate can expect a placement much higher than what a normal B. Com graduate would be offered.
  • It is proven globally as well as in India that a qualified US CMA will be able to add a lot of value to his employer and his career growth will be on the fast track as compared to candidates who only have graduation background.

In addition to the above on account of a distinct possibility of employment in a MNC, the candidate can look for a global position in the years to come based on the performance during his or her career.
