CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) candidates: Here’s an exciting new way to discover everything you need to know about the process of earning your CMA.

Join the IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) team for a special interactive session as part of IMA’s Accounting & Finance Conference (formerly known as the IMA Annual Conference & Expo). The 2022 Conference will be held on June 12-15 at the JW Marriott in Austin, Texas.

The session, titled “CMA: Get Informed, Get Inspired!” and sponsored by Wiley, will be held on June 12 from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Central. Attendees will be able to test their knowledge with actual retired exam questions, more fully explore the certification process, and learn tips on exam preparation. Candidates will also hear from professionals who recently passed the CMA exam. They will share their exam-taking experiences and discuss the value of the CMA to themselves and their employers.

As an added bonus, anyone who attends this session will have the opportunity to enroll (at no cost) in IMA’s exclusive CMA Guided Self-Study Program. This guided self-study group will kick off in September 2022 and will be taught by an expert CMA instructor. It’s a special program that’s usually only available through select organizations, but IMA is forming a special cohort for Conference attendees.

Note that joining the CMA Guided Self-Study Program requires an active IMA membership, payment of the CMA entrance fee, and the purchase of a comprehensive CMA study package from an IMA partner.  

Noted Lisa Beaudoin, CMA, CSCA, CAE, IMA senior director of business development, “We’re very excited to offer a session at IMA’s Conference that can help CMA candidates in their quest to earn their certification. We’re glad our attendees will have the opportunity to participate in what should be a well-attended, engaging session that covers most of what candidates want to know about the exam in a single session.” 

She continued, “This year, we’re also pleased to be able to offer, for the first time, enrollment in the CMA Guided Self-Study Program. This is a proven, effective way to prepare for the exam. We hope many candidates will take advantage of it.”
