President's Message

Dear Chapter Members,

Welcome to the new Amsterdam IMA Chapter website!  In a coordinated effort, the IMA Global we are pleased to offer better aesthetics and improved consistency with your IMA online experience.  We hope you continue to find great benefit from your CMA certification.  For those who are studying for the exam, you have our best wishes for success.  Your local chapter is a good resource for you to gain perspective from your peers, volunteer leaders, and a great diversity of business professionals.

The Amsterdam chapter in The Netherlands was established in 1990 by the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam who started the program in The Netherlands. First with the CMA education and later as well with the CFM program till when it was stopped in 2005. With an overall passing rate which continuously has been on the higher end of the global average success rate over 700 students successfully gained the IMA credentials.

IMA’s mission is to provide a forum for research, practice development, education, knowledge sharing, and the advocacy of the highest ethical and best business practices in management accounting and finance.  They do this by:

  • Offering a rigorous, highly respected credential – the CMA – that recognizes and rewards expertise
  • Building a peer network of professional relationships to share industry experience, access career opportunities, and make business contacts to last a lifetime.
  • Providing extensive education programs to advance professional knowledge, increase leadership potential, and satisfy CPE requirements
  • Giving a voice to the profession with insightful and timely journals and newsletters
  • Promoting leading-edge research and industry best practices
  • Advocating for the profession in a challenging regulatory environment.

In line with above the Amsterdam Chapter organizes a wide range of events, such as annual meetings, educational seminars and professional development workshops: events that help YOU to stay in shape as a finance professional!

We welcome your feedback and the chance to know you better.


Kind regards,

Frank Muusse
