Is the CMA certification worth it? I am Accounting major in my senior year of college. I have been contemplating taking the CMA exam since management accounting is my favorite part of Accounting. Several people strongly recommend either getting the CPA certification instead or in addition. I really don't see myself enjoying the CPA side of Accounting but I also don't want to waste time and money on a certification that won't add much value to my life.

Credentials matter in some public companies,and in government jobs. most private company accounting only values all of the following; neatness and personal organization skills,speed, reliability, constant improvement. if you can translate your time into learning on the job instead of adding initials you will be better off. lee anthony cpa.
