CMA Sri Lanka signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Deakin University Business school to pursue opportunities for collaboration for promoting the Deakin MBA pathway for CMA members and business leaders, to develop cost and management accounting theories and practices applicable to industries, services, and SME sector, in areas of research, to promote integrated reporting and research work on integrated reporting, to develop professional education and continuing professional development which will be beneficial to both parties.  Students who are current full professional members of CMA and who may have completed the CMA Professional Programme APEX Level will be eligible to receive up to 6 credit points into Deakin University M701 Master of Business Administration.

Deakin Business School (DBS) is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). A hallmark of excellence, AACSB accreditation is awarded to business schools that meet strict standards of quality, academic and professional excellence, and is known, worldwide, as the longest standing, most recognised form of professional accreditation an institution and its business programs can earn. Only 5% of business programs worldwide are AACSB accredited and DBS is one of only three in Victoria.

Deakin University was also associated in the CMA Excellence in Integrated Reporting Awards 2018 where they sponsored the Merit Award for Integrated Thinking. 

The agreement was signed at the CMA Headquarters in Colombo on 3 July.
