The reports presented here contain the results of surveys of IMA members in 2013-2014. These documents analyze by region:
- Base salary and total compensation,
- Impact of gender and education level on compensation,
- Effect of CMA certification on members’ earnings, and
- Other job-satisfaction related items, including hours worked and benefits received.
- Education “pays”— earnings increase per level of education.
- CMAs earn significantly higher salaries and total compensation than their noncertified counterparts. They also believe their CMA certification creates career opportunities, strengthens their ability to move across business areas, and strengthens their position in salary negotiations.
