In an agreement between CPE Link and CMA University, accounting and finance professionals will be able to take Certified Management Accountant (CMA) exam preparation courses conveniently on line, using CPE Link’s reliable and convenient web-based platform.
CMA University brings 10-years of experience in delivering live, instructor-led CMA exam reviews. With CPE Link, CMA University is able to scale beyond in-person seminars and reach a geographically larger audience. People who register for the CMA exam prep courses can attend the course live and also view rebroadcasts any time at their convenience. “CPE Link, by providing this flexibility, helps us better meet the needs of busy professionals wherever they live and work,” said Tom Coghlan, founder of CMA University.
More than 90 percent of accounting and finance professionals work inside organizations, where expertise in decision support, planning, and control over value-creating operations is a crucial element to operational success. The CMA exam validates mastery of the advanced skills required to manage finance functions and deliver value within an organization. Individuals who add CMA to their qualifications earn, on average, $30,000 a year more than their non-certified counterparts, according to salary surveys by the IMA, the association for accountants and financial professionals working in business.
“We have partnered with CPE Link because CPE Link is in tune with the CPE industry and the people who need CPE, and very proactive in finding programs that are a benefit to them,” said Coghlan. “CPE Link has demonstrated that it is truly committed to our joint success.”
“CPE Link is delighted to make CMA University courses more broadly available because they have an exam review approach that works. Their program is very relevant to the aims of our clientele for continuing professional development,” said Sue Anderson, CPE Link program director.
