CMA Learning System

Join a leading group of professionals who have advanced beyond the practical accounting skill set by earning IMA’s prestigious global certification, the CMAŽ. The CMA Learning System offered at USI is your complete solution to prepare for the NEW Two Part Certified Management Accountant (CMAŽ) Exam. The CMA Certification Exam has changed from a 4 part exam to two exam parts. The organization of the new two-part exam more closely aligns with the knowledge, skills and abilities that an accountant or financial professional in business uses on the job today – financial planning, analysis, control, and decision support. These skills are critical to the success of finance teams. The CMA exam updates will allow an employer to more readily understand the applicability of the CMA to a corporate career path and allow the candidate to more efficiently demonstrate the skills evidenced by the CMA.  The goal of the new CMA program is to ensure that the CMA remains the most appropriate designation in the world for accountants and financial professionals working in business. IMA’s CMA Learning System course combines live classroom instruction with textbooks and online, interactive testing components to deliver a comprehensive and customized learning experience in management accounting and finance. These two convenient courses involve 66 hours of classroom instruction and mirror the two CMA Exam parts. Candidates receive the CMA designation after successfully completing two computer-based exams administered by the IMA.
