Certified Management Accountant

Certified Management Accountant (CMA)

The CMA program (English) at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU) is focused on non-Dutch speaking, international professionals who work in the Netherlands as a management accountant, financial professional or hold a related function such as controller or CFO.

What is the CMA Program?

The CMA Certification consists of two parts. Part 1 focuses on Financial Planning, Performance and Analytics and Part 2 takes you deeper into Strategic Financial Management. 

After passing the two exams from the US-based Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) you become a Certified Management Account (CMA). This certification is a global benchmark for management accountants and finance professionals.

The same program is also taught in Dutch at the VU.
