EBS Named First European School Approved by IMA’s Higher Education Endorsement Program

29.09.2014

Following more than a dozen American colleges and universities, Germany’s EBS Business School has been recognized through IMA®’s (Institute of Management Accountants) Higher Education Endorsement Program as the first European school to achieve this distinction.

The Higher Education Endorsement Program recognizes undergraduate and graduate accounting programs that meet the educational standards that enable students to pursue the CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) credential.

“Properly trained accountants are vital to the success of businesses and economies around the world. We’re pleased that EBS is supporting management accounting education and preparing its students for this important career path,” said Raef Lawson, Ph.D., CFA, CMA, CPA, IMA vice president of research and policy and professor-in-residence.

Following a thorough review process, IMA endorsed the EBS B. Sc.-level courses in Cost Accounting, and Performance Management and Measurement, as well as the M. Sc.-level Advanced Management and Enterprise Risk Management courses.

“Recognition by IMA as Europe’s first endorsed school is a great achievement and a testimony to the emphasis we at EBS place on both academic rigor and practical relevance,” said Niels Dechow, professor and chair of Management Accounting and Control. “The IMA endorsement is a clear testimony to the quality of the curriculum offered by the leading department at EBS for Finance, Accounting, Control & Taxation (FACT). FACT is very proud of this accomplishment.”

Higher education programs seeking endorsement by IMA must substantially cover the content of the CMA exam in their curriculum, have adequate faculty resources, be accredited by a recognized accreditation organization, and have a faculty member designated as an IMA Campus Advocate. The Campus Advocate program helps professors demonstrate their commitment to the future of the accounting profession by mentoring students and encouraging CMA certification.

“IMA encourages faculty around the world to promote the management accounting profession by joining the IMA Campus Advocate program and by encouraging their schools to seek IMA endorsement,” said Lawson.

IMA’s Higher Education Endorsement Program offers two tiers of recognition: full endorsement, for those university programs that meet all endorsement criteria; and provisional endorsement, for programs with some minor to moderate shortcomings in meeting all the criteria for full endorsement.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
