Thank you very much for your support and guidance. You will be always my guru and will approach for your advice.

I have passed CMA Part-1 with a score of 390. It was a fantastic journey of 3 months, I still wonder 3 months were just enough with IPFC tohave an apex professional body examination to crack.
Even though I had plan to do CMA from 2017, but I refrained from studying by seeing volume. Now I feel it not only about volume it’s about a mentor like you which made us capable to handle any situation in exam hall and life.
A recorded class would never give the motivation and keep the "Josh" up as you give.Now I'm confident that I could complete CMA by coming window and move up in life.
Thank you so much Team IPFC and Bala Sir.

Though I started my Journey with IPFC somewhere in 2015, but during those days I was not regular, attentive and persistent. I continued the class for 5 to 6 months but never looked to take any exams.
After every CMA window, I use to get a motivating and encouraging email from Bala Sir, asking to join back and fulfil your dream of becoming CMA. This almost happened for 4 to 5 times and finally in 2018, I decided to give it a final try.
From that day onwards I started attending the class regularly and also started to take all the IPFC mocks. Initially my score where very low in Mocks. I use to go through the Mock Feedback and notes which helped to improve my understanding on the topics.
Many of the people may argue what is special in IPFC compared to other institute. The only thing which I can say is Bala Sir, his direction and his knowledge. I passed CMA part 2 hardly with 200 plus pages IPFC notes and Mocks.

The way of teaching especially without the help of books or questions is unique to IPFC Academy. Into the mid-career and after years of leaving studies, it is very difficult for me to read the book and prepare for the exam.
I credit the success wholly to Sushant sir because only by his energetic and persuasive push made me continue, otherwise I might have dropped out. After my first attempt, I thought it is not my bread. The support team also provided good and prompt support.
Now the Part II is remaining which i will be attempting in coming window.

I started my journey of CMA in 2014 with one of the institute in Riyadh. Within sometime, I wasn't able to connect and couldn't go for any exams.
Back in 2019, I feel CMA should be done by any means and decided to Join IPFC.
I appreciate the teaching effort and guidance provided by the Bala Sir. What keeps me going as compared to my previous institute is continuous follow up and chasing of Bala sir when it comes to attending classes or submission of homeworks and Mock classes and special attention given for each students.
By God’s grace and under the guidance of Bala Sir I was able to pass the CMA P1 during the Feb 2020 exams with 380 marks.

I noticed that IPFC Academy classes has improved a lot when compare to the earlier years , the notes, white boards and excel sheets are more than enough to clear the concept in all areas of CMA topics more over we are getting many mock exams after each topics which will enable us to practice the questions like real exam.
Sush Bala Sir classes and mentoring helped a lot to get the confidence back. Now I am confident that I can complete CMA probably in the coming window.

It feels so good after passing both the papers of CMA (US) exams in the first attempt. My sincere thanks to the entire IPFC family for all the guidance and coaching.
IPFC online classes that happen over the weekend is a big advantage for all working professionals. It is really flexible, 2 hours on Saturday’s/ Sunday’s and on Thursday’s/Friday's for each part.
Teaching at IPFC happens in a traditional way i.e. teacher writes on a whiteboard and those whiteboards are sufficient for revision of the concepts.
Mr Sush Bala, is a great mentor and motivator He has a unique teaching style with focus on every student in the class, their performance, areas of improvement, etc.
The mock tests and home works that are conducted gives a flair of real CMA exam questions.

I just want to highlight the methodology of imparting training which is totally different. You learn interactively through active participation.The internal evaluation process of IPFC is superb, which grooms yourigorously on a continuous basis. Mr Sush Balaalways highlights your weak areas and helps you to improve.
If you want to clear the exams and master the subject which will provide you an edge in your professional career, then I request you to listen him and follow him. You need to follow whatever he write on white board and complete all the homework and mocks. You will not require to read or refer toany books and other fascinating online mocks.
Thanks for the support and contribution for my success. You will always remain in my prayers.

I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to Sush Sir and his team at IPFC for their contribution in my passing Part 1 CMA exam with a score 390. More than a teacher, he is a mentor, motivator, and best guide to achieve our dream
Keep these in mind :
Attend all classes, as conceptual clarity is most important
Revise white boardand use it as your textbook
Attend all Mock Tests - repeat at least 2 -3 times.
Practice Software section-wise only until you reach 90% score in each section.
Practice, Practice and Practice.
I did not study anything extra for essay, but just verified the model essay answers. If we have 100% conceptual knowledge, the essay will be easier.

Mr. Sushant Bala Sir, as I have understood him is a true gentleman who above all is a brilliant strategist, a genuine achiever himself who pushes students to achieve their goals too, thus a great leader who knows his job to the core and can go to any extent to achieve it.
They say, he who has traversed a path multiple times, is suited to be the best possible mentor and that's exactly what Bala Sir is. For one he took me, a person with engineering & management background and made me pass CMA (US), one of the toughest exams in strategic finance & accounting in just 18 months in the first attempt.
Bala Sir's background in engineering & management, and his way of teaching is well suited for engineers and his exceptional clarity of thought and massive industry experience make him literally paint finance & accounting concepts on a digital canvas/whiteboard which students need to keep in mind during exams.
While teaching is probably 50% of his efforts the remaining 50% goes into monitoring student progress and pushing them to the edge for success.

I had left my studies 17 years back and never imagined that I could do a professional course. It was not easy to cover the portions with our busy work schedule. But IPFC classes and mock tests are enough for any student to pass. IPFC students are not required to read study materials, because the classes are arranged in such a way that you will understand the topics from the class itself.
I am deeply thankful toMr Sush Bala sir and the complete IPFC team for this wonderful support. The amount of commitment is remarkable.
From my experience, I was able to conclude, that students need to follow instructions, be regular in class, take & retake all mock tests and homework.
These are enough for passing CMA(US)

Needless to say that, being a working professional with limited time to read books, I had to depend ONLY on the Notes provided along with the tests. The notesgave us 100% view of the large text books, which completely eliminated the need of go thru any books.
Completing the Home Works has played the trick and it gave me much needed confidence to attempt the Test Papers.
The notes, home works and test papers would not have helped, if I was not pressurized to pursue, through constant mails. It was really challenging to respond to mails, by attempting the tests. Once all the tests were taken, by enough retakes, I was almost through the first part of the exam.
The tips & technique of attending questions during exam, is also very important for everyone to finish the questions within the time limit.

When as a student, you have multiple responsibilities and priorities in your personal and professional life, it becomes difficult to devote dedicated time to study religiously for a tough exam like CMA(US). That's where IPFC was a great help for me personally. Their model allowed me to effectively use the time to clear my exam.
The aspects which I really admire about IPFC and Mr. Sush Bala is their commitment and ownership towards students. The course coverage to the minutest of details and its depth is absolutely fantastic. Be it a festival, adverse weather conditions or for that matter any other social/political reasons, the IPFC class goes without any impact, whatsoever.
The live interactive online classes are ideal for the aspirants who wants to attend classes from the comfort of your place without disturbing your work and family schedule. This allows them to make the “not so productive” time to upgrade and enhance your professional skills in accounting, reporting, risk management, and internal controls.

I am happy to share that I have cleared my CMA by studying just 3 months for each part.
You might remember that when I had my first discussion with you, you said - "our students don't have to touch the books but we still give them for mental satisfaction." To this, I said if that is the case, then i would like to join you without any books.
I did my CMA Part 1 in Jun 2018 and then took break due to personal reasons. Then started off for CMA Part 2 in Apr 2019 and cleared that in Jun 2019. It was not easy to get back to study mode after 7 years.
You and all IPFC members give so much attention to each student that if they follow you, they will pass for sure.
I am deeply thankful to you Sir and to the complete staff of IPFC Academy for the support.
To all the students, I would advise that believe in Bala sir & just do as he says, classes, home works, & mocks are sufficient enough to get through.

It was one of the happiest moments in my life when I read the email from IMA informing about my passing of CMA Part-1. It was very hard to control my feelings when I read the email while being at a public place surrounded by so many people and I was out of words when I spoke with you all, sharing the news.
The first gratitude of course went to the almighty for his unconditional grace showered upon me. I believe, IPFC Academy as an angel being sent to this world to guide people like me as they have a unique teaching method.
The amount of commitment IPFC team has for the student enrolled, is remarkable. Although the chasing emails to keep pace with the homework and mocks, keeps us under pressure, but it guarantees results.
From my experience, what I was able to conclude was that, the student need to blindly follow the instructions, be regular to the classes, do & re-do the homework and mocks.
I salute the dedication and commitment taken up by team IPFC in supporting the students in numerous ways. There had been rarely any situation where my request had to be repeated.
I look forward to completing my CMA Part-2 with the help of IPFC.
My sincere gratitude to the IPFC team

Have now completed my CMA(US) course from your esteemed institute and am a proud CMA(US).
When I joined IPFC was a bit hesitant to move ahead. But you encouraged me to go for it and assured me will come out successfully. Your consistent follow up and calls and forcing me to take up mock exam was the main reason for my success in becoming a CMA(US).
Being a private institute you are more like a GURU for a student to ensure they work to achieve their goal rather than having commercial interest. Your dedication and to take classes on time regularly have added value to the institute. I have not seen such sincerity in any other institute. You are good in understanding each student and assess the individual weakness so as to give them the relevant course study line to enable them to cope up the pressure and ensure that enthusiasm remains steady. This good feedback and follow up from your end will be remembered by me for ever. Sincere thanks for all the help rendered.
The support team of IPFC are always there to support us and have responded positively for all back up docs, support and assisting the student team for their requirement. A big thanks to them and convey my gratitude for their commitment and support to IPFC student community.
Once again sincere thanks to all of you for the immense contribution to my achievement.

Devi Jayraman

I received my results for Part 1 and I am very happy to inform you that I have passed with a score of 360.
I was introduced to CMA(US) by my colleague almost 2 years back and after intense research on the internet, found IPFC Academy. I did not attend any demo classes but directly registered on March 4th 2019 and took up the exam on June 24th 2019.
Initially, I found it almost impossible to manage work, home and studies. But gradually settled down with Sir's guidance. Though Sir's teaching methodology does not require us to prepare outside of the mocks & home works, I tried questions from Hock after completing the home works & mocks given by sir since, I had a huge gap after my studies and wanted to increase my confidence level and gain speed. Though I used Hock tests, I did not use the Hock material for reading purposes.
Sir's notes are more comprehensive both from exam and knowledge stand point. So I relied on the white boards alone for learning. I was not required to read books/materials and sir's notes were more than enough. I strongly feel that reading through the white boards, taking up home work & mocks on time would immensely help the candidate to perform well in the exam.
A big thanks to Sir, who was instrumental in coaching me and guiding me even a day before my exams. I have no words to express my gratitude to him. Also my sincere thanks to the support team of IPFC Academy for assistance.
Looking forward to pass Part 2 as well with Sir's valuable guidance.

It is really a great pleasure and proud moment for me to say that I could clear the CMA(US) Part 2 as well. Really happy to realize that now i am a CMA(US) !!
Looking back, it gives me immense pleasure and this moment instils confidence in me to move further ahead with pursuing more qualifications.
As it was my try after 17 years of gap in my studies, never had imagined that i could be able to achieve this milestone. Nevertheless to say,it was my right decision to come to IPFC Academy and really lucky to have a strong mentor/guru like you SIR.
I would definitely recommend this esteemed institute to those who has dreams but are afraid to chase them. I am greatly indebted to the IPFC Support team who supported me whenever I required support. It is really a great pleasure to see that every student gets the required attention and care which is very rare in this competitive world.
Thanking you very much from bottom of my heart..

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your guidance efforts and persistence, without which I would not have cleared CMA(US) .

You have been a great teacher and mentor and guiding us in all the steps, even at mid night, you tireless teach and take all the strain on you.
May you live longer to make many more CMA’s. I salute your passion and dedication to make us a qualified CMA(US).
Thanks once again sir; you will always be behind the CMA certificate we have received though the name is mine on the certificate.
Thanks so much and may you live longer.

It has been the greatest last 10 months for me. Cleared both CMA(US) parts, what I think is more than I could have hoped for. I want to reiterate the fact that your guidance has the lion's share in my success as also stated by other students of IPFC. The scores of 400 & 420 were achievable only because of your teaching style and your constant efforts for student improvement.
Quality of your homework and mocks is second to none and solving them is the difference between just failing and getting a good score. I am happy that after 10 months of hard work I landed on the right side. I am really proud to have passed this exam in the first attempt which was not possible without IPFC Academy.
Lastly, the support and administrative staff is amazing, always on the toes & assisting in any way they can.
Kudos to IPFC Academy and proud to be a student.

I have cleared both the groups in one attempt and would like to thank you for your guidance and support which has made this impossible task, possible for me.
I joined IPFC Academy almost four years ago when I gave my first attempt. I did not manage to clear the exam during that time. I have realized that not listening to your advice and not practicing the mock tests that you provide from time to time have been the only reasons for me not being able to clear.
Your belief in your students and the hard work that you do on each of us made me come back to the institute once again and following your advises and with your great guidance, I managed to clear both parts this time and with ease.
I thank the whole staff of IPFC Academy for helping me achieve my aim of becoming a CMA(US).

He had so many intermittent incidents, accidents, disturbances in his life that after passing one part (P1), he was not able to join back. With IPFC I got the real
platform for the CMA. The learning process got changed from the conventional book teaching to a concept oriented classes. It was my first experience for the
online class., which builds the the conceptual understanding not on the course itself, but on the professional side. For me IPFC is the best choice for doing any professional course.

This is to inform you that I have cleared my CMA Part 2 exam in the first attempt (Oct 2018) after I joined IPFC in Jan 2018 and cleared part 1 in June 2018 in very first attempt .
My journey with IPFC during this period of 9 months has been great as I cleared both the CMA parts in first attempt itself .
It has been lot’s of hard work during this period as apart from office we used to have classes ,homework and mocks .
This also included special classes organized during the end of course which used to put extra pressure on us .
But this extra pressure helped me to excel as this helped me to prepare for CMA course within three months with the support of IPFC

At the outset I’d like to express my sincere gratitude to you and IPFC team for achieving my dream, CMA.
There is a saying that “Success wouldn’t come without hard work”, it is proven in my CMA journey.
It needs a lot of efforts to become a CMA, however as an IFPC student, those loads had been significantly taken care by you.
Just to listen what you say during the class hours, most importantly MOCK, HW and exam tips are significantly adding value to our efforts.
I would like to share my happiness with you and our IPFC family, by transferring a small amount to IPFC account, for sweet distribution.

It wasn't easy though among the busy work schedules and personal commitments.
But IPFC classes are absolute enough to boost the morale of a most weakest person and emerge to victory.
I was not able to attend the classes regularly due to work and personal commitments but Ipfc class notes are absolutely a bible which helped me to gear up and obtain confidence in attending PART 1.
I am glad to say that i could clear PART 1 with 380 score in my first attempt, an attempt after 16 years of gap in study, which i dedicate for your Love and Passion towards your students.

I am very happy to inform you that I passed both parts of CMA Exams in June and October window.
Also, I received CMA Badge and credential number on 21st December 2018 and now officially became a CMA.
I almost completed the first part within 3 months but still lacked the confidence to attend the exam.
Anyway, I revised my studies for second terms by attending the classes and mocks and then finally wrote the exam in June 2018.
I passed in the first attempt itself.
Then immediately I decided to book and complete the course by the next window and I could achieve it.
The best part which I like with IPFC is the follow-up by your team. I am sure that I completed the course successfully due to the follow up only, otherwise I would have been dropped out
