Iran Management Association (IMA) was established in 1960 by a group of farsighted Iranian executives, managers, and academics who wished to promote effective management in private and public sectors in Iran.
Over the years, IMA has witnessed enormous changes in the social, political, and economic fortunes of the country, but has remained committed to carrying out its original mission : teaching and practicing good management in Iran. IMA is under the supervision of the Iranian ministry of science, research and technology. It has been graded as A+ by the ministry for twelve consecutive years.
