What is CMA?
Certified Management Accountant (CMA) is an international credential that can be earned by students and working professionals in 9 to 12 months. It focuses on skills in management accounting, financial planning, and analysis. This certification is granted by the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA), based in the USA, and has members in 140 countries. In India, it is considered equivalent to the Indian CMA (previously known as Cost and Works Accountants or CWA).
Can US CMA find jobs in India?
Absolutely! There are numerous opportunities for Certified Management Accountants in India, spanning various roles within a CFO team like accounting, financial planning and analysis (FP&A), and controllership, among others. With the current shortage of accountants, many multinational companies (MNCs) in India are outsourcing these positions. Earning a CMA certification can be a stepping stone to a rewarding career!
What is the average CMA salary in India & the US?
The average CMA salary in India generally falls between INR 5 - 8 lakhs per year . However, experienced CMAs and those in senior management positions can earn significantly more.
What is the US CMA course eligibility?
To be eligible for the US CMA exam, you must meet these criteria: 1. Be a member of the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA®). 2. Have a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university (excluding humanities), or hold a professional accounting certification with at least two years of relevant experience. 3. Enroll in the CMA program. 4. Pass both Part 1 and Part 2 of the CMA exam. However, even if you're an undergraduate, you can still take the exam. With the IMA's flex option, you get seven years after passing both parts of the exam to earn and submit your degree.
