Becker for Business: Certified Management Accountants
The advantages of becoming a CMA
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.
According to Strategic Insight, the flagship publication of the IMA, companies who employ CMAs and help develop their careers may benefit in these ways:
- Competitive advantage
- Better business communication and trust when dealing with coworkers, customers, suppliers and investors
- Forward-thinking goals and objectives
Among the skills that CMAs may bring to a company are corporate fraud prevention and detection.
CMA candidates must train while actively working in the accounting profession. Therefore, companies that employ CMAs and help develop their careers may help foster success for the organization. Additionally, a CMA will grow with both the role and the company. Businesses are constantly evolving, so an individual who can demonstrate an ability to learn and grow adds value to the bottom line as a dynamic employee.
By hiring a CMA, companies gain access to a candidate who has been tested on strategic thinking and an understanding of how enterprises conduct business in a contemporary setting.
Moreover, as the global popularity of CMAs continues to reach record levels, a multinational corporation can be increasingly assured that in hiring a CMA, they are bringing on someone who possesses a certain level of expertise and professional knowledge.
