The Benefits of the CMA
Accountants with the CMA certification earn 28% more in total compensation on average than their non-certified peer. That works out to an increase of more than $20,000 per year for CMAs in most countries according to the IMA’s annual salary survey, but the CMA is so much more than a larger payday.
Most CMAs also report their certification opens the door to more career opportunities, as well as higher job-satisfaction. The benefits are real, and that is what makes this such a valuable certification.
How Much Does the CMA Exam Cost?
Earning your CMA is an investment of time and money. You have to meet certain requirements for education and work experience and, in addition to the specialized knowledge required to pass the CMA exam, there is an up-front financial burden.
- You must first become an IMA member. First-time members must pay a one-time $15 application processing fee along with the membership fee which ranges from $39 to $230 depending on the type of membership.
- IMA members then become CMA candidates by enrolling in the CMA program. The entrance fee for the program differs by type of IMA membership and ranges from $188 to $250.
- After enrolling in the CMA program, CMA candidates can register for CMA exam parts individually. CMA exam fees also differ by type of IMA membership and range from $311 to $415 per part.
If you take the CMA exam in 2017, you can expect to pay upward of $1,000 in required fees, plus the purchase of an exam prep program to prepare quickly and help ensure you pass both parts of the CMA exam on your first attempt.
