Corporate Finance is an important topic, as it covers 20% of the exam material in Part 2.
To nail this section of the CMA certification test, you will need to get familiar with risk and return, and long term financial management, such as term structures for interest rates, cost of capital and various types of financial instruments.
Cost, Volume, Profit Analysis
Here you will want to know how to calculate the break-even analysis; the point where total costs and total revenue are equal.
You will also need to know how to judge profit performance and be comfortable analyzing multiple products.
Marginal analysis is essentially “make vs. buy” decisions that take into consideration sunk and opportunity costs, special orders and pricing, capacity considerations, and more.
Pricing methodologies and product life cycle considerations will be covered in this section. Additionally, you should feel confident in your knowledge and understanding of target costing, the elasticity of demand, and market structure considerations.
This section makes up a meager 10% of your exam and focuses on enterprise risk. This means understanding the different types of risk and how to assess them, as well as knowing how to mitigate and manage the level of risk.
Capital budgeting process
Capital investment analysis methods
Ethical considerations for management accounting and financial management professionals
Ethical considerations for an organization
Not only will you have to understand basic business ethics, but you should be familiar with ethical considerations for both an organization, and for accounting professionals.
This includes knowing the IMA’s Statement of Ethical Professional Practice, and their statement on Management Accounting, “Values and Ethics: From Inception to Practice.”
