Many of us want to pursue this accounting certification for a brighter future and promising career path.With that in mind, I did some research on existing CMA careers by job nature and industry.
CMA Careers are Highly Diversified
CMAs work in a wide variety of workplaces. This includes family-run businesses, private firms, small and large publicly listed companies and multinational corporations. There are also CMAs in not-for-profit organizations, government and academic institutions.
CMA Careers by Industry
The following data includes all IMA members who may or may not be CMAs. However, one can safely assume that IMA members are at least those who are actively seeking the CMA certification. The overall profile should be similar to that of the active CMAs alone.
Manufacturing, finance and business services represent more than 50% of the industries where CMAs are employed. These industries value professionals who can analyze the financial statement to improve the businesses’ operation and efficiency.
