Student Success Stories
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.

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.
