The four types of competency that credential holders will be required to demonstrate are:
- Integrative Competencies
- Professional Competencies
- Cross-Disciplinary Knowledge
What differentiates a CBA® from other professionals?
1. Integrative Competencies
Integrative competencies represent the true differentiation of the CBA® professional. These competencies are the hallmark of the CBA®, representing his/her capacity to envision, strategize, conceptualize and innovate. They signify the CBA’s ability to combine knowledge from many sources, often in novel ways, to create economic value.
-Creating & Leveraging Knowledge
2. Professional Competencies
Professional competencies may be thought of as “enablers” of the credential holder. They include a suite of skills, capabilities and attributes that allow the CBA® to be effective and productive. Without professional competencies, the CBA® would be unable to translate ideas into action or bring influence to bear on the business challenges facing companies and individuals.
-Networking & Resourcing
-Dedication to Excellence
3. Cross-Disciplinary Knowledge
Most professionals have a solid knowledge base in the principles, standards and practices of their particular field or discipline. The CBA® credential differs from other credentials in that it requires a broad and interdisciplinary portfolio of business knowledge and functional expertise. While the CBA® professional is not expected to be an expert in each content area, he/she offers an understanding of concepts, practices, implications and inter-relationships among multiple business disciplines such as: Accountancy, Business Law and Business Planning.
