Professional opportunities for specialists

Once certified, individuals who possess the CAMS certification pursue careers in the public and private sectors.

Accounting firms (such as the “Big Four”: Deloitte, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), Ernst & Young (EY) and KPMG) also value those who possess the CAMS certification, particularly as it relates to their forensic accounting practices.
