CINCINNATI, March 25 –Xavier Leadership Center announced today it is offering a Certified Management Accountant (CMA®) Exam Preparation Program beginning September 2013.
This program adds to Xavier Leadership Center’s rich history in delivering nationally and globally recognized certificate programs for business professionals. While the CMA® Exam Prep program’s primary focus is to prepare individuals for the CMA® Exam, it is also a valuable professional development program that will help professionals advance their skills in accounting, finance, and business management. The CMA® designation, granted by the Institute of Certified Management Accountants (ICMA), is an objective measure of knowledge and competence in the field of management accounting and is most relevant to professionals performing an accounting and finance role internally within a company or organization. Sandra Richtermeyer, CMA, CPA, chair and professor of Accountancy and Business Law at Xavier University and current member of the IMA National Board of Directors, has been instrumental in bringing this program to the university.
The program will be taught by Ben Mulling, CMA, CPA, CITP, and chief financial officer of TENTE Casters, Inc. “The CMA® certification has done so much for me personally and my career,” Mulling says. “I am very excited to be able to help others earn this career achievement as well. The skills taught in this program are vital to the success of any accounting and finance professional in business, and I look forward to helping drive the management accounting profession forward through this exciting new program.”
“Xavier Leadership Center is excited to offer professionals the opportunity to prepare for the CMA® Exam,” said Bruce Miller, director of the Xavier Leadership Center. “Our goal at XLC is to prepare professionals for success as they grow in their careers and in their companies. Adding the CMA® Exam Prep Program does just that, while providing professionals with a globally-recognized credential within the demand driven accounting and finance professions.”
The Xavier Leadership Center’s CMA® Exam Prep Program will include the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) CMA® Learning System. The CMA® Learning System is a comprehensive study program which combines printed materials and online components with the expertise of a CMA® certified facilitator and the discipline of a classroom setting amongst peers. These facilitator-led review courses will be delivered in two sections, mirroring the two parts of the CMA® exam.
