    The Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) recognized The University of Scranton’s student chapter as one of just five Outstanding Student Chapters in the nation for the 2018-2019 academic year. Officers of the University’s IMA student chapter for 2018-2019 were: Kyle Hayes of East Norwich, New York, president; Kyle Ascher of Garden City, New York, vice president; Nicole D’Alessandro of Warminster, secretary; and Nicholas Constantinou of Amherst, New York, treasurer.

    The University’s IMA student chapter, formed in 2017, had 22 members for the 2018-2019 academic year. Through the chapter, University students participated in IMA’s national student case competition and its national student manuscript competition. Students also participated in IMA’s student leadership conference. The organization ran multiple events during the academic year that included meetings facilitated by faculty and professionals about ethics, careers and interpersonal and negotiation skills, among other topics. The chapter participated in two community charity events and went on off-campus site visits to IMA headquarters in Montvale, New Jersey, and Gertrude Hawk Chocolates.

    Students also participated in a Certified Management Accountant (CMA) exam information session. IMA’s Endorsement of Higher Education initiative recognizes programs that meet rigorous educational standards, enabling students to pursue and earn the CMA credential. The University’s undergraduate accounting program was endorsed by IMA in 2017.

    IMA will formally recognize Scranton’s student chapter at its national Student Leadership Conference in November is Charlotte, South Carolina.
