This program prepares an existing or emerging organizational or team leader with the necessary skills and academic knowledge for management positions in various business enterprises.  The Post-Master's Certificate in Accounting and Finance is designed to prepare the graduate to sit for the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) exam from the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA). The CMA is the globally recognized, advanced-level credential appropriate for accountants and financial professionals in business. Achieving the CMA demonstrates your professional expertise in financial planning, analysis, control, decision support, and professional ethics.

It is important to note that this certificate program, even when combined with the Bachelor of Science in Accounting program at Herzing University, may not fulfill all of the requirements for graduates to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam or apply for licensure in some states or jurisdictions. Many states require a specific number of graduate accounting classes as well as specific graduate accounting courses. Others may require several years of professional experience. This program is not designed to fulfill any of those requirements.
