The Certified Management Accountant designation ranks as a fast-growing credential around the world.
CMA status is considered one of the highest forms of professional certification in the corporate accounting world.
Yet, becoming a Certified Management Accountant requires a considerable commitment of time, academic study and real-world experience as a candidate. In order to earn their designation, CMAs must work and complete their training simultaneously.
