Why is the CMA the Essential Credential?
CMA is the credential that focuses specifically on financial planning, analysis, control, and decision support, as well as professional ethics—the critical skills for today's complex and changing business environment.
Leading employers seek to hire and promote CMAs. Companies such as 3M, Alcoa, AT&T, Bank of America, Boeing, Cargill, Caterpillar, ConAgra, Hewlett-Packard, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble, and Verizon have CMAs in key management roles.
CMAs have demonstrated both technical competencies and an understanding of the linkage between strategy and financial performance and are grounded in a firm commitment to upholding strict professional ethical standards.
The CMA is the certification that can deliver a tangible return on your investment. Professionals with a CMA can earn over $34,000 more in average total compensation annually than noncertified peers. (IMA Annual Salary Survey, 2013)
The CMA program responds to the needs of busy professionals with a choice of flexible learning formats including the live instruction program offered here at the Fordham School of Professional and Continuing Studies. Upon completing a course, CMA candidates may sit for the exam at Prometric Testing Center locations worldwide.
