Student Success Stories

Through IMA, I have won a scholarship and sharpened my organizational, planning, and communication skills. It opened my eyes to the CMA, which is so relevant to what management accountants do day-to-day.

I think that joining IMA as a student member is probably one of the smartest things that young accountants could possibly do for their careers. IMA holds so many value-adds, from publications and scholarships to thought leadership. For the growing accountant, there’s so much insightful information that carries over to the technical skill set needed at the professional level.

During my senior year of college, I passed the CMA exam and immediately put on my résumé in bold: CMA (Pending Graduation & Work Experience). This was a great confidence boost, and I landed an interview with Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing. The CMA was a big factor in getting that job and securing the position I have today.
