The Institute of Certified Management Accountant (ICMA) of Australia is a growing organization with a vision to attain the status of a premier body of professionals practicing the science of management accounting. The Institute was incorporated in 1996 under the patronage of Mr. William Dix (former Chairman of Ford and Qantas) and Professor John Miller (former Director of Consumer Affairs, Chairman of Pannell, Kerr, Foster and holder of numerous senior academic positions). Its objectives are to provide a professional organization for management accountants, and to encourage, disseminate and promote the specialization in organizations in Australia. Similar specialist bodies have been operating in most English-speaking developed countries, e.g. USA, UK and Canada.

Designations to Differentiate

A management accountant applies his or her professional knowledge and skill in the preparation and presentation of financial and other decision oriented information in such a way as to assist management in the formulation of policies and in the planning and control of the operation of the undertaking.

With differing education and experience requirements ICMA offers four levels of membership:

  • CMA - Certified Management Accountant
  • AMA - Associate Management Accountant
  • GMA - Graduate Management Accountant
  • MAA - Management Accounting Affiliate
