The ICMA provides an accelerated academic pathway program for senior academics teaching management accounting in accredited or government recognised universities.  These academics need to provide a CV and details of their academic experience in management accounting to obtain their CMA. All Professors  and Senior Lecturers in accredited or government recognised universities can apply for direct CMA membership on the submission of their CV, without following the CMA program. These individuals will pay only the application fee; joining fee and annual membership fees listed below.

The ICMA may require some of more junior academics to follow a CMA program* via an Accredited University or Recognised Provider, and in some cases there will also be assessments required. . Please note the experience requirements for AMA and CMA membership. Academic and teaching experience is counted towards this experience.
