 Becoming a CGMA with CIMA

Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) is the global designation for management accountants.

It is powered by the resources and expertise of the AICPA (the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants) and CIMA, two of the world’s leading accounting organisations.

When you complete the CIMA qualification and become a CIMA member, you will be automatically entitled to the CGMA designation.

The designation will add global power to your CV and demonstrate your business acumen, ethics and commitment.

CGMA will connect you to a community of like-minded peers where you will be able to share best practice, innovate and meet new challenges.

AICPA and CIMA are committed to elevating the profession of management accountants in business and government by establishing the new designation.
