Certified Management Accountant (CMA)

For more than 40 years, the CMA (Certified Management Accountant) certification has been the global benchmark for management accountants and financial professionals. Why? Because CMAs can explain the "why" behind numbers, not just the "what." And that can give you greater credibility, higher earning potential, and ultimately a seat at the leadership table.

The Value of CMA

CMAs earn 31% more in the U.S. than non-certified professionals.* In fact, a 22-year-old CMA could enjoy more than $500,000 in additional lifetime earnings. More importantly, the certification is a pathway to a more successful business career: one that opens doors, builds confidence, closes skills gaps, and lets you tap into a professional network of 80,000 professionals around the globe. As our CMAs will tell you, it's an investment that pays a lifetime of dividends and lets you rise above the competition. *IMA US Salary Survey, March 2016
