Over time we have seen that people tend to confuse between various terms like CMA, ICMAI, CWA, and ICWAI. So, to end all your confusion, the Institute of Cost & Works Accountants of India (ICWAI) has changed its name to The Institute of Cost Management Accountants of India (ICMAI). Also, the ICWA course has been renamed as the 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

 

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

 

  • CMA Foundation
  • CMA Intermediate
