The course duration usually is 4 months (one semester’s duration) although this duration is flexible (3 to 6 months) and depends on the enrolment date in a subject.


The exams are taken in a mutually agreed exam period between WITS and the student. For CMA and GMA subjects the usual exam period is May or November, and it will cost more for ICMA students wishing to sit for exams outside these scheduled times.


ICMA expects an exam to be taken within one-year of commencing a subject.


The maximum number of subjects you will be permitted to undertake for any WITS program (including the ICMA programs) is 4 subjects per semester.
