What is the CMA?

The Certified Management Accountant (CMA) is the internationally accepted designation for management accountants and financial managers. The CMA is beneficial for those seeking careers in industry rather than a career in public accounting. The CMA certification is offered through the certification division of the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA). 

What is the CMA Elite Track?

The CMA Elite Track is a guided timeframe not an academic course. For any help in scheduling, please contact the School of Accounting and they will be happy to assist you with your academic schedule and walk you through the process of passing the CMA exam. 

What is the Timeframe?

CMU is now offering the CMA Elite Track, which is a guided pathway that provides students and opportunity to graduate with the CMA exam completed. Specifically, the IMA requirements allow a student to sit for open part of the exam during their junior year and the remaining part of the exam can be taken in the middle of their senior year. 

Where Can I Learn More?

A detailed curricular map for the CMA Elite Track is available in the School Accounting Office in Grawn Hall 312. If you are not on campus we invite you to email SOA@cmich.edu or call (989) 774-3796.
