Hyderabad: To provide training and certification courses for a growing group of accounting and finance professionals in India, IMA (Institute of Management Accountants) has announced a partnership agreement with John Wiley and Sons, Inc. (Wiley), publisher of the CMA Learning System (CMALS), and Miles Professional Education (Miles), a professional certification course provider in India.

Under the agreement, Miles commits significant resources to support live training for management accountants preparing to take IMA’s CMA (Certified Management Accountant) exam using Wiley’s learning system. IMA’s globally recognised CMA credential is an advanced assessment of accounting and financial management knowledge in four critical areas: financial planning, analysis, control, and decision support.

The two-part exam is offered through prometric testing centers in India and throughout the world. The CMA also helps working professionals take their careers to the next level through a cost-effective path. The preparation of CMA professionals also fits perfectly with the national skill development agenda of India.

Jim Gurowka, IMA Vice President for international development, pointed out that the demand for highly qualified management accountants is the need of the hour as there is a growth in economy. “This new partner agreement solidifies IMA’s commitment to the region and reinforces our dedication to supporting careers, organisations, and the public interest,” he further added.

Beginning this summer, Miles will offer an eight­week instructor-led course, to prepare management accountants for the exam. The courses, available in eight cities across India, provide 60 hours of training on exam content, guidance for taking the test, and career counseling. “We at Miles recognise a great opportunity for management accountants in India with the recent government focus on economic development and growth.

The availability of the CMA credential will enable a highly qualified workforce and enhanced performance of organizations,” said Varun Jain, Founder, Miles Professional Education. Vikas Gupta, managing director of Wiley India said, “This partnership underscores Wiley’s commitment to support individuals around the world pursuing globally relevant professional certifications, such as the US based CMA.”
