The CMA certification shows proof of a candidate’s knowledge and competencies in the Management Accounting field. Requirements to enroll in the CMA program are:
- Two years of relevant work experience;
- A bachelor’s degree of an accredited college or university.
Please check whether your college or university is included in this list. If not, let us know by sending in your application, so we can check with IMA if they accept the degree from that institution.
The English CMA program at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam is specifically focused on non-Dutch speaking, international professionals who work in the Netherlands as a management accountant, financial professional or hold a related function. When in doubt about your qualifications, do not hesitate to contact the programme director for more information.
Candidates are expected to have a thorough knowledge of Financial Accounting, Management Accounting and Financial Management. On average, candidates with an accounting degree or a business administration degree finish their studies within one year. Candidates who do not pass the exams of CMA Part 1 or CMA Part 2 within the planned time frame, can follow the classes again at no cost in the next year.
