Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation holders are committed to professional ethics and a code of conduct. A single syllabus and examination standard ensures the consistency of a CGMA’s skills all over the world.

While many CGMA professionals work in the finance department, others put their broader business training to use across the organisation, including the roles of Board Director, Chairman and CEO.

A global profession

AICPA, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and CIMA, the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, two of the world’s most prestigious accounting bodies, have formed a joint venture to elevate the profession of management accountancy by establishing the CGMA designation as the most valued, globally recognised management accountant designation.
