Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business and the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA®) have entered into a collaborative agreement with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding to deliver workshops that educate accounting and finance professionals on what they need to know to succeed in today’s business environment. Under the new collaboration, IMA and the Gabelli School will showcase thought leadership produced from both the Association and the School in executive-level workshops that address emerging issues in the accounting and finance profession. The partnership will provide IMA members and Fordham Gabelli alumni and students with priority access to the workshops.

“We are excited to be collaborating with the Gabelli School on the development of these workshops as the School has a long-standing, proven dedication to excellence, professionalism, and core ethical foundations,” said Mike DePrisco, president and CEO at IMA. “It is essential that we deliver the know-how to vitalize professional accountancy and corporate finance so that all professionals can thrive when it comes to emerging issues impacting the profession.”

“We are thrilled to be partnering with IMA on this very important initiative. Working together, we can offer accounting professionals and the academic community cutting-edge insights into navigating internal controls for reporting sustainability-related information. The profession will need these insights to develop the skills and competencies to lead the global aspiration to deliver profits with a purpose,” said Barbara Porco, Ph.D., associate dean of graduate studies and clinical professor of accounting and taxation, Gabelli School of Business.



The first workshop, “Bridging COSO and Sustainable Business Practices,” will be produced by IMA and will take place at Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus in the Law School building at 150 West 62nd Street, New York, NY 10023 on November 30 – December 1, 2023. The workshop, will take a deep-dive into COSO’s (Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission) recent publication “Achieving Sound Internal Control over Sustainability Reporting (ICSR): Building Trust and Confidence through the COSO Internal Control – Integrated Framework.”

It will show how effective governance and oversight systems can help an organization articulate its purpose, set its objectives and strategy, address risks, and grow on a sustained basis with confidence and integrity. Attendees will leave the workshop with the tools and expertise needed to apply their know-how of governance and controls to the accelerating mandates for sustainable business and ESG Reporting.
