For many candidates, the essay portion of the CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) exam can seem the most daunting. To help allay some of that anxiety, candidates are encouraged to participate in the next offering in IMA’s CMA candidate webinar series, “The CMA Exam Essays: Everything You Need to Know!” 

The webinar will be held on August 18 at 10 a.m. EDT and co-hosted by Lisa Beaudoin, CMA, CSCA, CAE, IMA senior director; and Sue Mullen, CMA, CSCA, CPA, professional instructor, Ashland University. Their talk will focus on how to optimize performance on the essay section of the exams for a better score, including areas such as:

  • How to best prepare for the essay section of the exam
  • How to maximize your point-earning potential on each essay
  • How to manage your time wisely

“Our presentation is based on our many years of experience working with CMA candidates on how best to approach the essay portion of the exam,” said Beaudoin. “We’ll be able to share tips and strategies that have worked in the past as well as answer questions from attendees. All CMA candidates are encouraged to attend.”
