The MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING 2020™ program was launched to promote and develop the science of Management Accountancy in leading-edge organisations in Australia by providing both individuals and business organisations with a portfolio of development opportunities designed to enhance their relevance as information age managers and business entities. The 2020 vision taken by the Institute in developing this program, looks well beyond the strategic decision making and reporting requirements of the year 2020, and tailors programs based on the informational needs specified by the management of such business entities.

The Management Accounting 2020™ Organisational Certification

This is a corporate strategic information quality certification, awarded to business entities whose managers and accountants are sponsored to undertake the CMA program (either in online mode or intensively over 7 -days). Organisations which sponsor their managers to participate in the CMA program (especially the organisation specific Business Research Project) are awarded this corporate certification upon the completion of the program, irrespective of the fact that the sponsored employees take the exams or not.

The benefits of an organisation obtaining The Management Accounting 2020™ Certification are as follows:

  • The organisation becomes accredited by The Institute of Certified Management Accountants as being an entity providing a suitable training environment for their managers to fulfil the experience requirements for ‘Associate’ (3 years) and ‘Certified’ (5 years) membership status.
  • The organisation may wish to use the MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING 2020™ logo in an appropriate manner to indicate its commitment to the provision of strategic decision making and reporting information to its various stakeholders.
  • The organisation may also wish to be the representative for its particular industry in the Global Think Tank.

If your organisation is interested in using the MA 2020 Logo, please contact the Institute on +61 (03) 8555 0358.
