Read what the professionals who pursued the US CMA credential for career advancement have to say about their experiences:
"I use my US CMA body of knowledge every day. It comes naturally in the role of CFO because I need 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
"I tell my students: taking the CMA exam is something you can do even before graduation. It gives you and your potential employer evidence that you're well prepared and well qualified. The CMA sets you apart from others who have a college degree alone, and it's something that is recognized and respected by a lot of potential employers."
Christine McKeag, CMA, CPA
Assistant Dean, Schroeder Family School of Business Administration Univ. of Evansville, Indiana
"The CMA gave me the cohesion and validation that I needed. Because I come from India and my education and experience came from there, my background wasn't as easily recognized. It's been very helpful for me to have this designation, because it shows that I'm a person who understands all the things that are tested on the exam."
Raj Bansal, CMA, CFM

I opted their online live lectures which gave me enough flexibility to attain from any location wherever I was during the period. I am grateful to EduPristine-Becker CMA review for helping me sail through CMA and would highly recommend CMA aspirants to sign-up with them.
It is my pleasure to thank Edupristine to guide me through the entire course of CMA. The study material and the coaching is up to the mark. A comprehensive online material (which includes the webinars and presentations) also helped me clear the certification at one go . Special mention of Mr Bhavesh Gala (our tutor) who kept providing the class with certain "tricks of the trade" to solve the questions in a logical way. I would recommend Edupristine for candidates who would be aspiring to become a CMA.
