CERTIFIED MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTANT®
(U.S. CMA® )
ABOUT U.S. CMA®
The U.S. CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) designation was developed in 1972 to provide an objective measure of an individual’s knowledge and competence in the field of management accounting.
Management accountants are vital to the financial health of organizations.
Management accountants make critical decisions, safeguard a company’s integrity, and plan for business sustainability.
Management accountants might be CFOs and controllers, budget analysts and treasurers, or one of many other game changers on internal teams.
Management accountants help drive an organization’s strategy and value amid an unpredictable market.
The U.S. CMA® exam aligns with the knowledge, skills and abilities that an accountant or finance professional in business uses on the job today—financial planning, analytics, control, and decision support. These skills are critical to the success of finance teams.
