Membership and becoming a CGMA

In order to become a CIMA member and Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA), you need a minimum of three years' verified relevant work-based practical experience.


While completing your studies may seem like a long way away, it’s never too early to start thinking about how you will gain the experience you need, in your current and future roles.

The Practical Experience Requirements are an essential part of the CIMA qualification and CIMA’s membership application process. They complement assessments and demonstrate your ability to apply your knowledge and skills in the context of your professional experience.

Your membership application will be assessed to determine whether you have gained sufficient experience to be awarded Associate membership – giving you the Associate Chartered Management Accountant (ACMA) and Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designations.
