Calwest University (Calwest) aims at providing affordable high-quality education to its candidates, so as they can work towards attaining a recognised degree at a fraction of the costs usually associated with such degree programs.Calwest takes the concept of the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) one step further by recognising for credit the free courses provided by some of the leading universities in the world; provided certain proctoring conditions are met.

ICMA has developed a special relationship with Calwest so that CMA members can get recognition for their prior learning by paying a $250 ‘Credit Verification Fee’ for 8 courses as a block based on the course content studied to become a CMA.

As such CMAs would need to undertake only 4 Courses at Calwest: (1) Business Ethics (2) Global Issues, (3) Critical Thinking and (4) Philosophy to obtain an MBA. These courses can be done online for $250 per course. The full fees that a CMA member will be up for to get a Calwest MBA are as follows:
