IMA Europe members now have access to a new CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) review course provider – Global International Management (GIM). GIM is promoting the CMA as the “international alternative to the Dutch Register Controller,” hoping to attract finance and accounting professionals seeking to enhance their skills with additional certifications. The new partnership was commemorated during a signing ceremony in August (see photo below).


“We’re very excited that GIM is offering a CMA course for professionals and promoting our certification as an alternative to the Dutch RC. This demonstrates the growing respect and awareness of the globally recognized CMA certification. We hope this new relationship will encourage members in more Dutch-speaking countries to earn the CMA, enabling them to realize better job opportunities, greater career advancement, and higher salaries,” said Alain Mulder, senior director, IMA Europe Operations.

GIM is now offering ??? Part 1 and Part 2 courses, which are being held using the company’s AI Becker platform and “Adapt2U” learning technology. CMA candidates have a choice of two packages: CMA Review Advantage or CMA Review Pro. 

GIM operates in the Dutch Caribbean and in Dutch-speaking Suriname in South America.

Commented Rocher Cyrus, CPA (US), CGMA, managing director, Global International Management, “At GIM, we are driving innovation through technology and education. With the CMA designation, our finance professionals remain relevant in a fast-changing world by embracing the IMA Management Accounting Competency Framework, including technology and analytics.”

On its website, GIM explains, “No two students are the same. Our AI learning tool adapts to your individual strengths and weaknesses so that your learning is personalized. As professionals, we highly support technology. In addition, we provide one-on-one academic support to ask questions and provide a personal response. There are no fix starting days and you can sign-up whenever you’re ready.”
