IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants), the association of accountants and financial professionals in business, focuses on advancing the management accounting profession. As one of the largest and most respected global associations of its kind, IMA® is committed to empowering finance and accounting professionals to strengthen on-the-job skills, better manage companies, and accelerate careers. Globally, IMA supports the profession through the CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) program, the CSCA® credential, continuing education, research, networking, and advocacy of the highest ethical business practices.
The CMA® is a globally recognized certification program for management accountants and financial professionals. The two-part exam covers 11 critical practice areas, including financial planning, analysis, control, and decision support. Testing windows are offered in January/February, May/June, and September/October. For more information about the CMA®, visit http://www.imanet.org/cma-certification.
Once you have received authorization from ICMA®, it is your responsibility to schedule your appointment at our center. Log onto www.prometric.com/ICMA to locate a testing center, schedule, confirm, reschedule, or cancel your appointment 24 hours, 7 days a week. Instructions are provided by ICMA® at the time your authorization letter is emailed that provides further options for scheduling. ICMA® is not responsible if you delay scheduling and there are no longer appointments available within your authorization period. You will be given a confirmation number at the time you schedule an appointment; you should make a note of this number. If you do not schedule an appointment or you don’t appear for a schedule appointment in the selected testing window, you will forfeit your exam fee.
