Accounting Club (IMA)
Student membership in the Institute of Management Accountants has a threefold purpose:
- To introduce management accounting to students planning careers in business
- To strengthen the knowledge and commitment of those already on the way to management accounting careers
- To demonstrate how IMA members work together to improve the science of management accounting.
IMA membership provides opportunities for students to associate with practicing management accountants; to see how they live, work, and apply their knowledge; and to learn that professionals are seriously devoted to their field and to high ethical standards. To qualify for student membership, one must be a regularly enrolled business student carrying at least 6 semester hours of credit. The Association requires an application in writing, on a prescribed form, endorsed by a faculty member of the Registrar.
