Becoming a CMA can change your life! Success demonstrates expertise in management accounting, finance, and ethics, and places you on a path for promotions and greater compensation.

The main requirement to becoming a Certified Management Accountant is passing the challenging CMA Exam. There are also education and experience requirements (a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution and two years of professional experience). Click the CMA Handbook button for detailed information about the requirements and the registration process.

Becoming a CMA doesn’t cost, it pays! Although self-study materials are available, candidates working on their own often invest unnecessary time and money taking it a second or third time, or sadly, some get frustrated and give up along the way.

We closely follow updates and study past exams to help you focus your time on the questions you will most likely see.

The CMA Exam has two independent parts: Part 1: Financial Reporting, Planning, Performance, and Control, and Part 2: Financial Decision Making. These parts can be taken in any order in one of three testing windows each year. The CMA School’s live, convenient classes fall between the testing windows:
