Drexel LeBow’s undergraduate accounting program is now a member of the IMA’s Higher Education Endorsement Program! This signifies our accounting program provides the rigorous curriculum needed for students to prepare for the CMA exam.
About the Higher Education Endorsement Program
The Higher Education Endorsement Program is a stamp of excellence, and signifies that an accounting program provides the rigorous curriculum needed for students to prepare for the CMA exam and successful careers in management accounting.
According to IMA, to qualify for endorsement, accredited institutions must substantially cover the CMA program content, invest adequate faculty resources to deliver this content, be accredited by a recognized accreditation organization, and assign a faculty member as a designated IMA Campus Advocate.
IMA’s globally-recognized CMA program is a relevant assessment of advanced accounting and financial management knowledge in areas such as financial planning, analysis, control and decision support – each of which is increasingly critical in meeting the changing needs of business, and therefore, essential learning for students of accounting and finance.
