Institute of Management Accountants
IMA A U.S. professional accounting organization. Established in 1919 (and originally called the National Association of Cost Accountants), the IMA focuses on *management accounting and financial management. It has little overlap with the external auditing and *public accounting focus of the *American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. The IMA is headquartered in Montvale, NJ, and its activities include certification programs, educational events, research programs, and publications, such as the monthly magazine *Strategic Finance and the academically-oriented Management Accounting Quarterly. The IMA also issues Statements on Management Accounting, ethical standards for members, and "comment letters" that set out the official IMA positions on accounting developments. In 2003 the IMA had approximately 75,000 members. Web site: www.imanet.org
