B.Com - International Finance

Integrated with US CMA (Certified Management Accountant)

B.Com Integrated with US CMA (Certified Management Accountant) certification is a global benchmark for management accountants and financial professionals. The curriculum students cover in Semesters 1, 2 and 3 to appear for the two-part CMA exams in Semester 4. So, this is an opportunity for you to clear the CMA exams even before graduation - the CMA qualification will set you apart from others who have a university degree alone, and is recognized by top MNCs in India and across the world. CMA is offered by the IMA (Institute of Management Accountants), US, and is a globally recognized, advanced-level credential appropriate for accountants and financial professionals in the business, primarily because CMAs can explain the “why” behind numbers, not just the “what”. Achieving a CMA certification demonstrates your professional expertise in financial planning, analysis, control, decision support, and professional ethics – skills that are in demand by organizations around the world. The course gives you an aptitude to generate meaningful insights out of raw data. This further gives you greater credibility, higher earning potential and ultimately a seat at the leadership table.

The CMA exams comprise the following two exam parts:

  • Part 1 – Financial Planning, Performance, and Analytics
  • Part 2 – Strategic Financial Management

This professional qualification furthers a university degree, and given the fact that university education covers a vast majority of the content, the professional exam only focuses on the skill-gaps which are needed for the profession. Therefore, US professional qualifications like CMA “complement” university education and have lesser number of exams.
