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.
