To qualify as a candidate for the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) examination, the following requirements must be fulfilled:
1. The CMA is an international designation, and the ICMA establishes the requirements needed to sit for the CMA exam. Passing the CMA exam does not lead to licensure in a state as the CPA does. The educational requirements that ultimately must be fulfilled to earn the CMA designation are: Hold a bachelor’s degree, in any area, from a regionally accredited college or university. Or...
2. Pass the U.S. CPA examination or hold another professional qualification that is comparable to the CPA, CMA, CFM, etc. or...
3. Achieve a score in the 50th percentile or higher on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).
The ICMA does not specify any number of accounting and/or business credits to sit for the CMA examination. Furthermore, the ICMA requires that the education requirements be fulfilled within seven years of completing the CMA examination. They are not required to be completed at the time the candidate sits for the CMA exam. At present, the state boards of accountancy and the ICMA do not require candidates to have relevant work experiences to sit for the CPA and CMA exams, respectively.
All inquiries regarding the CMA program should be addressed to:
