The CMA Program

The Certified Management Accountant (CMA) qualification is available to both accountants and non-accounting managers who are interested in gaining advanced knowledge in the strategic management information and performance reporting area. Accountants who wish to obtain CMA certification can participate in the CMA program, which will undertake two advanced units, namely, 'Advanced Management Accounting' and 'Advanced Strategic Management Accounting'.

Those without an accounting background, who are nevertheless interested in obtaining a professional qualification in the area, are able to undertake the above CMA program after they first complete a 'conversion' program of 4 coursework units, two of these being core subjects in the MBA.

In addition these students will need to do two further electives, Financial Statement Analysis and Management Accounting. On the completion of this 'conversion' program, these students will also undertake the advanced units required by all students prior to certification.
