CGMA Competency Framework

The CGMA Competency Framework is designed to help management accountants and their employers understand the knowledge requirements and assess the skills needed for both current and desired roles. The framework is underpinned by the need for objectivity, integrity, and ethical behaviour, and includes a commitment to continuously acquire new skills and knowledge.

The CGMA Competency Framework is the foundation that will demonstrate the relevance and capabilities of a CGMA as a trusted finance and business strategist.
