IMA Salary Surveys

IMA’s Global Salary Survey examines earnings specific to management accountants and those with the CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) credential. It is organized into U.S. and regional surveys and analyzes self-reported data from members around the world. Topics covered include base salary and total compensation, the impact of gender and age, the effect of the CMA, and job satisfaction (such as work hours and benefits).

Key Insights:

– Globally, the median base salary is 45% higher, and total compensation is 50% higher for CMAs over non-CMAs.*

CMAs of all ages earn more than non-CMAs. Those aged 30-39 receive a median salary 49-50% greater than their non-CMA peers.*

CMAs believe their certification creates career opportunities and strengthens their ability to move across business areas.
