CMA Inter or CMA Intermediate is a course or a exam is the second level for students interested to pursue a career in Management Accountancy (CMA). CMA Inter course is also conducted by The Institute of Cost Accountants of India (ICAI) also known as ICMAI or ICWA.

Over time we have seen that people tend to confuse between various terms like CMA, ICMAI, CWA, and ICWAI. So, to end your all confusion, Institute of Cost & Works Accountants of India (ICWAI) has changed its name into The Institute of Cost Management Accountants of India (ICMAI). Also, ICWA course has been renamed as CMA course. There is no difference between ICWAI and CMA, and they are the same. They are two different words used to describe one single thing. ICWAI stands for Institute of Cost and Work Accountant of India whereas CMA stands for Cost Management Accounting. Apart from the literal meaning, there is no difference at all.

There are 3 stages in the ICWA course i.e., CMA Foundation,

  • CMA Foundation
  • CMA Intermediate
  • CMA Final\

What to look for when thinking CMA?
