Exam registration and testing center information

CGMA Finance Leadership Program seamlessly blends learning and assessments, to ensure that you understand key topics and can apply your new skills before you move on to more advanced business concepts. The intelligent design of the CGMA program adjusts to you, so you can learn at your own pace and build upon your unique knowledge and experience with complementary skills and tools you can use immediately.

Each level of the CGMA program culminates with a Case Study Exam, a unique assessment designed to test your mastery of the critical competencies. The Case Study Exam will challenge you to apply all of your knowledge and skills to deliver insights and make decisions in a real-world business situation. A unique business situation is presented in each exam window, and students are given background information, or pre-seen material, seven weeks before the exam to prepare. The Case Study Exams are administered at testing centers all over the world, establishing a global standard of excellence for all CGMA designation holders.

The CGMA Finance Leadership program will prepare you for the Case Study Exam - and any future business challenge you’ll face - with the skills, the experience, and the confidence you need.
