Many people who are interested in working in the business finance world pursue a double major in business and finance,or they get a minor in business administration. EX: ,Bba ,Bbm ,Ba etc., this is not exhaustive list of examples.
Most of the CA students are pursuing their graduation in distance education or through open university.This is also eligible for applying for CMA. That’s why I said that this is an advantage to CA, CS students.

2. Apply for internship:

Like articleship in CA ,the CMA also has a rule in its curriculum that the applicant should have work experience. Accounting or finance internships give you real world experience and help you to network, a skill necessary when seeking any business position.

The greatest advantage to CA students is ” Articleship is considered as equivalent to internship that’s required to be completed in CMA”.

The highest package my friends got was 3 lakhs which is very low.

    Yours Truly,

    • I am a US CMA earning more than 5 LPA and I am just a fresher(2017 grad). YOU SHOULD NEVER DO CMA OR CPA WITHOUT AN INSTITUTE THAT OFFERS PLACEMENT ASSISTANCE. Organizations in India do not look at foreign certifications and the ones which need are tough to break into unless you have a strong network. Hence, the wiser option is to go for a coaching center which gives you a good placement.

    • …Continuation for the above”I am a US CMA earning…” comment…I am not really interested in taking out the names of coaching centers as people may think that I am advertising for something.

  2. I have dony my now planning to do CMA (US)

    Please can u suggest best institute to do CMA in pune city

    • No. You need to complete CMA India Final and then apply for USA CMA certification. The good news is that you don’t have to take any exams of the US course and you’ll directly get the certificate. And I don’t think you’ll get any opportunities abroad with CMA except for the case of countries in the middle east like UAE.
