IECJ publishes cases covering a wide range of topics reflecting the diverse skill set required of management accountants. Its 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. Each case includes detailed Teaching Notes, suitable for classroom use. IMA Academic members receive free access to these Teaching Notes as an exclusive membership benefit.
