IMA Student Night
The Institute of Management Accountants student night was held March 12, 2015. Eastern Kentucky University had ten students and two faculty members, Dr. Leslee Higgins and Dr. Ed Fenton, in attendance.
The dinner meeting included a presentation about the CMA exam by Brian Elkins, president of the IMA and former graduate student at EKU. Current EKU students and seniors, Leigh Compton (Stanford) and Melia Kemper (Hazard) presented information on the IMA student leadership conference which they attended last November.
Other presentations included information about internal auditing, resume writing, using a career placement service, and how accounting majors can work in areas outside the realm of accounting. Students and faculty from around five other area colleges and universities were also in attendance, and there was at least one professional accountant sitting at each dinner table to interact with the students.
