Comments From Past Participants
"The CMA has given me a tremendous amount of value. Not just on the financial end of things, but because I've gained broad-based accounting knowledge. I've been able to advance my career because that knowledge translates into benefits for the companies I work for."
Tammy Drescher, CMA, Senior Cost Accountant, Diamond Foods, Inc.
"I use my CMA body of knowledge every day. It comes naturally in the role of CFO because I need it to look at things from many different angles, not just from the financial perspective. Management accounting skills are very much in demand as foreign and local companies reach out from the local marketplace and into more global arenas. The CMA body of knowledge is very valuable in this regard."
John K. Lau, CMA, Chief Financial Officer, WesTrac China
