Tiffin University Accounting Program Receives IMA® Endorsement

Tiffin University’s accounting program has received an endorsement from the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA®). The IMA® Endorsement Program awards stamps of approval to colleges and universities with curricula proven to effectively prepare students to perform well on the industry’s Certified Management Accountant (CMA) Exam, as well as meet the demands of jobs in their field post-graduation. Fewer than 70 accounting programs nationwide have received this accolade.

“This news spells significant and positive change for Tiffin University’s School of Business,” said Dr. Peter J. Holbrook, Provost and Chief Academic Officer. “Not only is it a testament to the hard work and dedication of the faculty, as well as the quality of instruction they provide, but our graduates can now say they received their education from an IMA®-endorsed institution. The reputation of the IMA® precedes it, and having their official support further enhances the value of a degree in accounting from TU.”

To qualify for an IMA® endorsement, schools must meet four benchmarks. Their accounting program must substantially cover the content featured on the CMA exam, the program must have adequate faculty resources to deliver said content, the department must be accredited by a recognized accreditation organization and a faculty member within the major must be designated as an IMA® Campus Advocate. 

“While this is news worth being celebrated by all, our students are the ones who will most directly benefit,” said Dr. Terry Sullivan, Vice Provost for Faculty Relations and Dean of the School of Business. “This endorsement will open many doors for them, both during their time as undergraduates and after they enter their careers. I am especially pleased that our accounting students are now eligible to apply for participation in the IMA® Student Leadership Experience Program, a privilege reserved for those enrolled at IMA®-endorsed schools.”
