ICMA? (Institute of Certified Management Accountants) wants members to know the following:

Upcoming Testing Windows

There are two upcoming CMA? (Certified Management Accountant) exam testing windows:

May/June 2019
September/October 2019*

If you are in the program and have not yet registered to sit for an exam, be sure to sign up soon!

*Note that the last day to take the current version of the CMA exam is October 31, 2019. After that time, candidates must take the new exam, CMA 2020.

CMA 2020

Remember that the CMA exam is changing beginning January 1, 2020.

The changes will affect both parts of the exam, which will remain a two-part exam, each part a four-hour test with 100 multiple-choice questions and two essays. What will change is some of the content:
  • Fifteen percent of Part 1 will feature a ?Technology and Analytics? section. Part 1 will now be titled ?Financial Planning, Performance, and Analytics? and include content focusing on external financial reporting decisions, planning, budgeting and forecasting, performance and cost management, internal controls, and technology and analytics.
  • The revisions to Part 2 will include greater emphasis on ethics and strategic decision making. Part 2 will now be titled ?Strategic Financial Management? and include content on financial statement analysis, corporate finance, risk management, investment decisions, and professional ethics.
Candidates who do not finish both exam parts under the current program by the end of December 2019 will not need to retake those parts passed under the current program. They will also not have to repay the CMA entrance fee.
