The Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) is a global management accounting designation that recognises the competencies and expertise of management accountants who have the skill and discipline to drive strong business performance. CGMA is created by the joint venture between the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), two of the world’s most prestigious accounting bodies.

The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, founded in 1919, is the world’s leading and largest professional body of Management Accountants, with more than 229,000 members and students operating in 176 countries, working at the heart of business. In 2014, CIMA and the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA) established the CIMA-MIA Strategic Programmes to increase the number of accountants with professional qualifications in Malaysia. These programmes provide a fast track route for members of MIA to obtain the CIMA professional qualification. Upon completion of the CIMA exams and successful membership application, candidates will become CIMA members and gain the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation.
