About IMA®, the CMA® Program, and the CSCA® Program

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® (Certified in Strategy and Competitive Analysis) program, 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 12 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.

IMA also offers a specialty credential for IMA members who have passed both parts of the CMA exam: the CSCA certification. You can enhance your CMA certification with the CSCA program’s focus on strategic planning, competitive analysis, strategy implementation, performance evaluation, and decision making. The one-part, three-hour exam includes 60 multiple choice questions and one case study essay. Testing windows are offered in March and September. To learn more about the CSCA, please visit www.imanet.org/csca.
