CMA PROGRAM – A C-Suite Postgraduate Level Program

The CMA intensive programme from ICMA (Australia) is world-recognised as the benchmark for those in (or aspiring to) leading roles in strategic finance. It is usually run in face-to-face mode, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, has been completely redesigned for Zoom delivery without compromising on its quality or its post-graduate level content.

The CMA Program consists of two post-graduate level courses, namely: Strategic Cost Management and Strategic Business Analysis.

Why become a CMA?

  • A gateway to a more successful business career with higher earning potential, commanding a salary 28% greater than non-certified peers in Australia; and 56% more globally.
  • A variety of positions with titles from financial analyst and controller to vice president- finance and chief financial officer (CFO).
  • The potential for increases in salary, even during a difficult economic environment.
  • Greater credibility both domestically and abroad as a strategic advisor and business partner
  • A passport to a variety of businesses from multinational corporations to small and mid-size firms operating in countries all over the world.
