        Testimonial from previous attendees

        "I had the pleasure of completing my CMA studies via the
        zoom classes with Prof Janek Ratnatunga and Dr Chris
        D'Souza. The 8-hour classes (over 7 days) flew by with
        great practical examples, good humour and testing
        analytical scenarios. The skills gained have been
        invaluable in my career, allowing me to add real value.
        Post qualification completion, I changed jobs and gained a
        substantial salary increase. There aren’t enough words to
        express my heartfelt thanks to CMA, Prof Janek and Dr

        “I recently had the pleasure of attending the CMA
        workshops virtually organised by Singapore Management
        University in partnership with the ICMA. The 7-day
        workshop was insightful, relevant and added much
        needed skills to my financial toolkit. It aided me in getting
        closer to my ambition of being a CFO by equipping me
        with practical knowledge. The CMA also enabled me to
        take on a new role as Head of Finance for Consumer,
        Private and Business Banking Operations in Standard
        Chartered Bank. This course is a must for all aspiring
