MBA with CMA
A degree and a designation.
What a powerful combination.
The Laurier School of Business & Economics and CMA Canada-Ontario have joined forces to launch Canada’s first fully-integrated MBA with CMA Option program.
Laurier students are fully prepared for their CMA Case Exam and Board Reports. Laurier’s graduates of the MBA with CMA program have achieved a 100% pass rate on the CMA exam since 2007, and their exam performance consistently surpasses the national average, more so than any other institution.
Using Laurier’s MBA curriculum, our students complete the requirements for both the degree and the designation in ten terms. Laurier’s unique integrated curriculum incorporates management accounting knowledge into the course requirements, so that graduates will gain broad-based management skills as well as key financial expertise.
This program will provide you with the practical and theoretical knowledge required to excel in a competitive business environment. CMAs are strategic financial management professionals who combine accounting expertise with management skills to provide leadership, innovation and an integrated perspective to organizational decision-making.
Benefits of MBA + CMA:
- Obtain your MBA degree and your CMA designation at the same time
- Eliminate the need to write the 1st part of the CMA exam
