Muling nangibabaw ang Pilipino sa buong mundo matapos makuha ng isang accountant mula Bacolod City ang highest score sa Certified Management Accountant (CMA) examination sa United States.

Kinilala siya bilang si Rodrigo “JayR” Casiano Jr., 33 anyos mula Barangay Estafania sa Bacolod, ulat ng Inquirer.net.

Sinabi ni JayR na candidate siya para maging gold-medal recipient ng Institute of Certified Management Accountants (ICMA), ang certifying body ng Institute of Management Accountants (IMA).

Kinuha ni JayR ang two-part CMA examination sa isang authorized testing center sa Makati City noong May at June ng kasalukuyang taon.

Ani JayR tungkol sa pagsusulit, “This is similar to our local CPA, but this one is a global certification.”

Aniya, makapagbibigay sa kanya ng malaking oportunidad ang pagkapasa niya sa CMA exams.

“A CMA certification is recognized globally. If I move abroad or to the US, I can work there as a CMA.

“Unlike the CPA in the Philippines, which is only recognized here.”

Sa ngayon walang balak mangibang bansa si JayR, gayunpaman, ang pag-top raw niya sa CMA examination “will come in handy later if an opportunity comes.”

Base sa kanyang Facebook account si JayR ay kasalukuyang nagtatrabaho bilang manager sa Accenture, isang multinational IT services and consulting company.

Para kay JayR, bonus na lang ang mag-top sa international exam dahil ang hangad lang niya ay ipasa ito.

“Since I got high scores (480/500), I was told I was a candidate for the global award. For me, it’s really just a bonus to get the award.

“Passing the global exam was my priority since it’s one of the prestigious and challenging global certifications.”

Bagamat nalaman ni JayR ang kanyang score noon pa mang August, 2021, ang resulta ng global ranking ay inilabas nito lamang November.

Umaasa si JayR na magsilbing inspirasyon sa karangalang kanyang natamo.

Aniya, “It’s an honor to receive the award. I hope I have brought pride to our country and inspired my fellow Filipino accountants to aim high and be globally competitive.”

Kumuha siya ng Master of Business Administration sa Ateneo de Manila Graduate School of Business.

Sumailalim siya sa summer exchange program sa ESSCA Budapest, na tinaguriang French school of management sa Hungary.
