Budget Analysts

Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

No licensing is required for budget analysts, but there are several voluntary certification programs for analysts and related workers. For example, budget analysts who work for government agencies can earn the certified government financial manager credential from the Association of Government Accountants (AGA). Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree in any subject area from an accredited U.S. college or university, pass three comprehensive examinations, have at least two years of professional-level experience in government financial management, and agree to abide by AGA’s Code of Ethics.
