The AB² Institute of Accounting will offer finance professionals and accountants a preparatory course for the U.S. Certified Management Accountant certification, which demonstrates a mastery of management accounting knowledge and skills, according to a Nov. 25 announcement.
“Today’s business world is getting increasingly fast paced and there is an expanded role for accounting & finance professionals, with a higher focus on skills and knowledge,” said Josh Heniro, senior director of Southeast Asia at IMA. “This partnership signifies IMA’s ongoing commitment to advance the management accounting profession in the Philippines, supporting individuals with the opportunity to upskill and reskill throughout the different stages of their careers, and providing them with the skills and resources required to be future ready and excel in today’s competitive business world.”
Professionals who earn a U.S. CMA pass a two-part exam that covers 12 core practice areas. The CMAs then bring financial planning, control and decision support to their workplaces. To date, more than 100,000 U.S. CMAs have been awarded.
“We are excited to be partnering with IMA and being able to provide the Philippines accounting community with this international accounting certification,” said Nick Sinclair, founder of AB² Institute of Accounting. “Filipinos are world-class accountants and completing the U.S. CMA certification demonstrates their readiness for the global stage.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
