The Australian Institute of Certified Management Accountants (ICMA Australia) (www.cmawebline.org) is the most successful international Management Accounting organisation in Cambodia.
The Australian institute was incorporated in 1996 under the patronage of Mr. William Dix (former Chairman of Ford and Quantas) and Professor John Miller (former Director of Consumer Affairs, Chairman of Pannell, Ker, Foster and holder of numerous senior academic and other positions including former President of CPA Australia). Its objectives are to provide a professional organisation for management accountants and to encourage, disseminate, and promote the specialisation in organisations in Australia. The ICMA Australia Regional Office in Cambodia was established in 2015, with RHC Education as the Recognized Provider Institution in Cambodia.
What is a CMA?
Certified Management Accountants (CMAs) are strategic value creators who apply pro-active financial skills and forward looking management to provide innovative business solutions. CMAs bring the knowledge and experience to the different functions within an organisation, such as information management, treasury, efficiency, auditing, marketing, valuation, pricing and logistics that maximise enterprise value.
Role of a CMA
CMAs are important assets in all types of organsations. They analyse operating results, review performance, audit operations, and resolve issues that enhance the strategic objectives of the organisation. CMAs appreciate the business approach for managing customer value, formulating strategies, and valuing equity. CMAs are value creators, not just merely accountants who adhere to compliance to the profession.
Quotation from our Patron
"The management accountant is the rudder of an organisation, steering the direction of the strategy and alerting the organisation to danger. Without one, you're lost. The value is in the analysis. There is plenty of information to consider; figures on costing, pricing, the marketing strategy, the budget as well as external variables like the state of the market, but the analysis of these different variables is the key to developing an effective business strategy."
Dr. John Miller
