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.
CMAs earn 47% more in the U.S. than professionals without the CMA or CPA.* 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 network of 100,000 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.
