  1. Sir is it benefical and have a good scope in India for students adopting US CMA course, as india have its own CMA course.
    Pls guide me whether it is suited to go for US CMA or indian CMA.

    1. Hi Abhinav,

      The Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) and The Institute of Cost Accountants in India (ICAI,formerly ICWA) entered into a mutual recognition agreement. You can take either of the two certifications but if you are planning to work abroad, the US CMA may be the best choice. For more information about the mutual agreement, please check this link.

      Thanks and Regards,

  2. Sir
    I am a software developer with a Btech degree. I have no experience with accounting.

    1. The answer is yes – the CMA certification will be a proof of your knowledge in finance and management accounting, which will give you a big advantage over non-certified peers.

  3. Hello Mr.Nathan,

    I have 12 years work experience in financial accounting & reporting, I lost my job recently & during this time I wish to apply for CMA & complete it.

    My plan is to take a break from job for 4-5 months, spend this time on studies & after passing CMA look for a better opportunity.

    I want to register ASAP & appear for exams in Feb-18 for both parts (1&2). since I am jobless now, i can spend daily 10 hours on studies.

    do you think its possible in this short span? do you recommend to try ?

    Please reply at the soonest as I have very less time to decide.

    1. Hi Tanveer,

      I’m afraid it’s nearly impossible to prepare for both parts within such a short time span. Is there any way to postpone it for May/June exam window?
