Training and Development

Constant Training and Development is crucial for every professional career. It is not only about expanding knowledge, it is about wanting to evolve in a vast changing everyday business life. We offer an International Training & Development Program conceived to provide our members with all the modern knowledge they need to succeed in their business environment. A conference organized every autumn and a training day organized every spring, tailor-made to the needs and the development of our members, can guarantee their evolution. Several factors playing a role in the success of a company are beyond the scope of financial statements alone. No matter the size, industry or profitability of a business, organizational culture, management philosophy and business ethics each have a crucial impact on long-term business performance. After the theme ‘Change’ in 2015 and ‘Self Development’ in 2016, we will work around ‘Business Ethics’ in 2017. Our role as assistants to the management is crucial, as we execute their decisions. But do we always agree? Do we have a choice? Acting in an ethical way is about being able to distinguish “right” from “wrong”. It is about integrity and doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.

IMA has since the start in 1974 offered high quality international training and development for the management support professionals. On the occasion of IMA’s 45th anniversary we have listed all our international events and topics between 1974-2019 here.
