• Advanced Financial Accounting
• Corporate Finance
• Operations Management
• Information Technology
• Strategic Management
• Marketing

The topics are covered in 22 lessons plus four tests over a eight-month or fourteen-month period. The program is offered by on-line distance-learning videos along with several half-day weekend lectures throughout the program. 

To be eligible for the Accelerated Program, candidates must:

• Have a recognized university degree
• Have a grade of 60% or better in the four CMA prerequisite topics:

• Introductory Management Accounting
• Introductory Financial Accounting
• Economics
• Statistics

This is what one of our past students had to say about the Accelerated Program:

The CMA Accelerated Program is an extremely challenging endeavour that I thoroughly enjoyed and found ultimately rewarding.  It required significant commitment, but provided an excellent grounding in accounting and an indispensable basis on which to prepare for the CMA Entrance Exam.  The instructor on the video, Jacques Maurice, was very knowledgeable and possessed that rare ability of explaining complex concepts in simple terms with humor and example.  The program requires discipline, but for serious students the rewards are substantial.


Next Steps:
