Ten outstanding students from the Accounting Department of the King Talal School of Business Technology at Princess Sumaya University for Technology have received scholarships from the American Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) for the year 2020, which will enable them to obtain the international Certified Management Accountant qualification (CMA).
The President of PSUT, Prof. Mashhoor Al-Refai, congratulated the students on their deserved achievement, stressing that hard work opens broad horizons for the student who perseveres and determines to build a bright future. Prof. Al-Refai expressed his happiness for the great distinction and presence that PSUT’s students achieve at the local and international levels, saying: “This positive direction reflects the aspirations of HRH Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan, Chair of the University's Board of Trustees, of lending full support to the University’s students to help them in achieving global competitiveness at the top level.
The head of the Accounting Department, Dr. Suleiman Al-Barghouthi, stated that these scholarships have been gained by the department's outstanding students for the third year in a row. The value of each scholarship is 1400 US dollars, and it also includes IMA membership and the fees for the CMA exam, which would increase the recipient’s opportunity to obtain an excellent job, both locally and internationally.
The Institute is considered a pioneering body that enables professionals in management accounting and finance to excel in performance. It is a global association of accountants and financial professionals working in the field of business, dating back to 1919.
The King Talal School of Business Technology obtained the AACSB international accreditation this spring, thus making PSUT one of 5% of the world's universities, and 2% of the world's universities outside the USA to gain membership, as well as the first in the history of Jordanian universities to obtain this accreditation.
