How does your salary and compensation compare to other management accountants? To learn the answers, IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) is conducting its 2019 Global Salary Survey, and we’re asking members to participate.

Selected members will soon receive an email, asking for assistance with this important research study. The survey, which should take about 15 minutes to complete, will compile information from IMA members from 140 countries on topics like education, certification, job responsibilities, salary, total compensation, and more.

By participating, members will be entered to win one of three $500 USD gift cards or one of five $100 USD gift cards. Winners will be selected randomly from the pool of completed surveys.

IMA’s 2018 Global Salary Survey, the results of which were published this past March, included responses from more than 2,500 members across 62 countries. Among the key findings: Professionals with the CMA certification earn 62% more in median salary and 67% more in total compensation than non-CMAs.

Noted Kip Krumwiede, CMA, CPA, Ph.D., IMA director of research, “We encourage all members to participate in this survey, as the more responses we have, the more accurate and meaningful our results will be. Information gathered from this survey will help us identify trends in compensation and other job- and career-related factors among our global membership. It will also help members to know where they stand relative to their peers.”

Results for the 2019 result will be published in the March 2019 issue of Strategic Finance, and individual regional reports will be available on the IMA website. Regional reports from the 2018 survey are posted at
