CGMA overview for AICPA members 


How do you become a Chartered Global Management Accountant Designation Holder?

Beginning in January 2015, AICPA members pursuing the CGMA designation will be required to pass a strategic case study examination. Before implementation of the exam, accounting professionals who meet the following minimum requirements qualify for the CGMA designation:

  • Three years of financial (including internal audit) or management accounting experience in business, industry or government or
  • Two years of financial or management accounting experience, plus one year in public accounting or
  • Three years of financial/management accounting experience on a consulting basis or
  • Three years in a management accounting role focused on the management and operation of an accounting firm
Designation cost

The annual CGMA designation fee for 2013-2014 is $150.00; AICPA members who are also a member of a State CPA Society will receive a $50 annual discount off the designation.

Maintaining the CGMA designation
To maintain your CGMA designation, you must remain a voting member of the AICPA in good standing and pay the annual fee for the designation. Continuing professional education (CPE) is required for CPAs to maintain their professional competence and provide quality professional services. CPAs are responsible for complying with all applicable CPE requirements, rules and regulations of state boards of accountancy, as well as those of membership associations and other professional organizations.

Certificates
CGMA holders will receive a certificate suitable for framing after the annual designation dues have been paid.
