“The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Jamaica is pleased to partner with the AICPA to offer the CGMA Finance Leadership Program to members of the accountancy profession in Jamaica,” said Sixto Coy, ICAJ president, in a statement. “The initiative, led locally by ICAJ, is a positive step towards the further advancement of the profession. ICAJ encourages Chartered Accountants and qualified accounting students to access the expedited pathways to the CGMA designation for their professional development and the greater good of our nation.”
