New Delhi: Miles Professional Education, India's largest classroom training provider of CPA (Certified Public Accountant), the US equivalent of the Indian Chartered Accountant, introduces CMA (Certified Management Accountant) training in India as official partner of IMA (Institute of Management Accountants), US, and Wiley. This day also marks the announcement of the launch of the IMA chapter in New Delhi.
CMA is a highly respected US certification awarded by the IMA, a US-based worldwide association for accountants and financial professionals working in business.
The CMA designation provides an objective measure of an individual's knowledge and competence in the field of management accounting and financial management.
CMAs have extensive career opportunities with MNCs in India and across the world. To add to the credibility for Indian candidates, IMA has a MoU with the Institute of Cost Accountants of India, formerly ICWAI, where IMA and ICWAI mutually recognize each other's members.
On this occasion, Varun Jain, CPA, CMA, Founder and National Instructor, Miles Professional Education said: "The CMA designation goes a long way in adding to the knowledge and credibility of accounting and finance professionals looking at careers with MNCs."
"With Miles' market leadership in CPA training in India, the CMA training partnership with IMA and Wiley reinforces our position as India's leading training provider for US professional certifications in accounting and finance."
"Roadmap to clear the CPA exams is 12 months and CMA is 6 months. We have a robust team of CPA and CMA instructors to train and guide Indian aspirants to successfully earn these globally recognized designations, making Miles India's only institute to have 8 full time CPA's."
IMA is the worldwide association of accountants and financial professionals working in business. With over 70,000 members and nearly 300 Chapters worldwide, IMA is committed not only to provide networking opportunities to its members, but also to expand their professional skills and enhance their careers.
The local IMA chapters would contribute significantly to the management accounting profession. The chapters will work towards establishment of university and student level programs and conducting seminars and events for professional and corporates.
One of the key highlights of the US certification is that the academic content is crisp and concise and focuses only on what professional s really need to know - say CMA has only 2 exams.
Further, these exams are predominantly objective which means that candidates need to have the desired conceptual clarity before they achieve these designations.
Achieving the CMA designation demonstrates professional expertise in financial reporting, planning, performance, control and decision support - skills that are in demand by organizations around the world.
A CMA's role is to ensure that the company runs its financial and overall performance in an effective and efficient manner so that the objectives of the companies are met. CMA's have extensive career opportunities in accounting and finance positions with Multi-national corporations.
The CMA credential also equips candidates with leadership skills, gives them an international perspective and provides access to an elite professional network.
