Whether you are a fresh graduate or someone working in the finance and accounting role with an ambition to have a highly rewarding career - CMA is the qualification for you!

The Certified Management Accountant (CMA) is the advanced professional certification that demonstrates command of the critical accounting and financial management skills demanded by today’s dynamic businesses, translating into significant career opportunities for you. CMA has a legacy of 40 years with over 30,000 CMA professionals worldwide and is considered the gold standard certification for accountants.

Management accounting is a fast growing field. Today accountants are no longer seen as a "Bean Counter" but also as contributors towards business decision-making.

CMAs work in diverse job functions today - financial statement analysis, budgeting, cost control, risk management, product pricing, forecasting, raising capital, prevention of frauds and errors and investment appraisal. Research suggests that CMA certified members earn 122% more in salary and 117% more in total compensation than noncertified members. The global recognition of the CMA qualification will also open doors to international mobility.
