Description

The goal of this course is to prepare you to successfully pass the IMA exams and achieve your Professional Certified Management Accounting Designation. For additional information follow me on twitter Dr John@the_acct_coach. Here are some student comments about this training program:

"Very informative and at a pace i can understand. " Mary Grace Warner 

" Sample tests in final session were very good and helped me identify areas where I needed to study up more. I don't know my test score yet but I feel that I have a good chance of passing because Dr. John's course did help a lot.....hopefully Dr. John will create a Part 2 CMA and I will sign up for UDEMY too." Bradley Koga

It begins by first understanding how a professional organization such as the Institute of Management Accountants of America sets and marks the exams that lead to the professional designation as a Certified Management Accountant, The exams are offered three times a year - January, June and September.

I am developing and will continue to develop course materials that will prepare you to pass the Part 2 Exam and then the offered to university graduates by the Institute of Management Accountants in America.

I earned my CMA 40 Years ago. I have taught CMA courses and consistently had an 85% to 90% pass rate. One year it was 94%. I have marked thousands of CMA final accreditation exams.

Passing CMA exams will not be easy.

Obtaining your CMA designation - believe me - will pay you BIG dividends for the rest of your career. It did for me.

Accounting Professor

I am a Professor of Accounting with over thirty-five years experience teaching accounting to college students, undergraduate and MBA university students as well as CMA candidates seeking to earn their Professional Certified Management Accountant Designation.

I achieved my Certified Management Accountant Designation 40 years ago. With that I then earned my Masters of Business Administration degree and later a PHD in accounting.

I have developed and will continue to develop a number of courses in both Financial Accounting and Management Accounting for you - a college or university student (or even a secondary student) to help you to achieve the best result in your undergraduate accounting course. If you get an "A" from me I guarantee you will get an "A" from your accounting prof.

For Graduate students, I have a course to prepare those of you who do not have a business degree for the Masters of Business Administration. Also I have a course at the masters level called Managerial Accounting.

For CMA Candidates, I have courses to prepare you to successfully pass their Certified Management Accounting Exams offered by Institute of Management Accountants.
