Student Chapter Leadership
IMA student chapters are communities dedicated to connecting accounting, finance, and business students on college campuses. These chapters engage in various activities including spreading the word about IMA on campus, sponsoring talks and discussions with local business leaders, helping students make career decisions, and providing community service. Every year, student chapters vie for the Award of Excellence and Outstanding Student Chapter programs, which recognize chapters for achieving distinction in their promotion of IMA’s mission and vision and providing a broader range of activities and services to their members.
Our local student chapters currently total more than 100, with thriving groups around the globe. Through these chapters – started by students or faculty advisors – students gain direct access to IMA professional members in their area. They also learn how to be leaders, how to work together as a team toward a common goal, and how to negotiate conflict. Student chapters provide great training for what it’s going to be like in the real world.
