Those with degrees in fields other than accounting need to do four prerequisite (conversion) subjects, before they do the above two, i.e.:
- Financial Modelling (Accounting with Excel modelling)
- Financial Management
- Management Accounting
- Financial Statement Analysis
Completion of these four subjects will give you Graduate Management Accountant (GMA) status, and if you have three years relevant experience, Associate Management Accountant (AMA) status.
Information about undertaking the above four courses online can be obtained from the Wharton Institute of Technology and Science (The Global Business School).
