In order to become a chartered global management accountant (ACMA, CGMA), you need a minimum of three years' verified relevant work-based practical experience.
Read our applying for membership brochure for full details of the practical experience requirements (PER).
As part of the 2015 professional qualification syllabus, PER is also being reviewed. Once this is complete, we will inform you of the changes. In the meantime, PER requirements remain the same.
Experience may be drawn from any of the following three areas over a period of three years or more (but a minimum of 18 months must be gained within the core area).
Relevant experience gained before registering as a student will also count.
Our academic (PDF 48KB), internal audit (PDF 33KB) and external audit (PDF 33KB) guidelines explain whether your experience in these areas can be used as part of your application.
