Accredited University Graduate Explained

by Scott Roehl

A popular question I have received this fall has been in regards to what the CMA Accredited University Graduate means and how to achieve it? Let me explain.

For most students interested in pursuing a CMA designation, a recognized Canadian university degree (or an approved international equivalent) in conjunction with the successful completion of CMA pre-requisites in accounting and management topics is required to challenge the CMA Entrance Exam. Graduates who have not completed all of the CMA prerequisites can complete the CMA Accelerated Program in order to challenge the CMA Entrance Exam.

In Manitoba, the B.Comm. (Hons.) accounting major program delivered at the Asper School of Business is a program accredited by CMA Canada. This means that students at the Asper School of Business who successfully complete their degree program including all CMA pre-requisite topics while maintaining a high GPA over their course work may be eligible to be waived from the CMA Entrance Exam. If approved as an Accredited University Graduate, the student would be able to proceed directly in to the CMA Strategic Leadership Program.

Students who are considering the Accredited University Graduate path need to consult with the CMA Manitoba Office while completing studies at the Asper School of Business to ensure understanding of what is required to apply for the waiver.
