Assurance associate is now a Certified Management Accountant

Assurance Associate Juan Paolo Concha from the VLS cluster earned his Certified Management Accountant (CMA) qualification after passing the two-part exam recently.

The CMA program aims to further develop its members’ analytical, evaluation and synthesis skills in cost and management accounting. It is offered globally and recognized by a number of universities as an equivalent to two graduate-level managerial accounting courses in their Masters degrees.

As part of the CMA program, Juan Paolo took up two advanced electives, namely Strategic Business Analysis and Strategic Cost Management before taking the qualifying exam. A cum laude BS Accountancy graduate from the University of the Philippines Visayas Tacloban College, he placed 7th in the October 2013 CPA board exams.

Congratulations, Paolo!
