The IMA Educational Case Journal (IECJ®) is a quarterly online journal that publishes teaching cases and notes. IECJ publishes cases covering a wide range of topics reflecting the diverse skill set required of management accountants. Its published cases take learning beyond mere “number-crunching” exercises to require interpretation of data in a decision-making context – making them ideal learning tools for graduate and undergraduate students.
