A THOMASIAN ranked second in the recent worldwide certified management accountant (CMA) examinations, making her qualified to practice internal audit overseas.
Eunice Ann Libaton, who obtained her bachelor’s degree in accountancy from UST in June 2016, will also receive the Distinguished Perfomance Award from the Institute of Certified Management Accountants (ICMA), which administered the examinations.
Libaton said she overcame her fear of taking an exam to be a step closer to her dream of practicing outside the country.
“Yung CPA (certified public accountant) kasi [dito] … is more on external audit, while CMA is internal, making you part of the management where you’ll do accounting para [masigurado] mo na hindi malulugi yung company,” Libaton said in an online interview.
Libaton took the first part of the exam last January 12 and the other half last February 28.
She is expected to fly to the United States in June 2018 for the awarding of the medal and certificate of recognition from the Insights Financial Review, provider of professional review courses.
The ICMA is an organization of management accounting professionals in the Australasia region.
