The Institute of Management Accountants Announces “Next Generation” Ethics Program for Finance Professionals

(PRWEB) April 24, 2003

MONTVALE, NJ (PR Web) APRIL 22, 2003 — Today, the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) announced the creation of their “next generation” ethics program for finance professionals: The IMA Course on "Ethics for Success": An IMA Program featuring One Week With's production of The Essentials of Ethical Success with Tom Morris, Ph. D. plus Accounting Challenges and Best Practices from Steve Player.

This highly interactive, web-based ethics educational program offers a new type of learning experience with one of AmericaÂ’s leading thinkers, Dr. Tom Morris. For the accounting or finance professional, the program provides practical information, application exercises, and best practices developed by renowned industry expert and business author Steve Player.

“Given the ethical challenges—both real and perceived— facing the finance industry, the IMA is committed to educating professionals not only about ‘letter-of-the-law’ issues, but also about a fundamental framework for business ethics,” explains David Schweitz, Executive Director of the IMA. “Dr. Morris’ interactive program provides us a platform to deliver on all of these pertinent issues,” Schweitz continues.

Produced by internet education developer One Week With, Inc., in association with IMA, the IMA program has been dubbed a “next generation” learning experience due to its substantial depth and useful web-based, interactive format which is more convenient for overburdened and travel-averse professionals. “In many ways, American business has outgrown the typical ‘hit-and-run’ seminar,” says Ken McInerney, CEO of One Week With, Inc. “Our goal is to directly connect America’s best-and-brightest thought leaders with business professionals in a learning environment that has depth and breadth over time.”

Dr. Tom Morris as AmericaÂ’s Business Philosopher

Dr. Tom Morris has become one of the most active business speakers and authors in America due to his unusual ability to connect the greatest wisdom of the past to the modern day challenges faced by business. The author of such books as True Success: A New Philosophy of Excellence, If Aristotle Ran General Motors: The New Soul of Business, The Art of Achievement, and Philosophy for Dummies, Dr. MorrisÂ’ synthesis of historical wisdom is helping change lives and revolutionize business practices everywhere.

“Now more than ever, American business needs to understand itself in the context of the Great Thinkers,” Dr. Morris explains, “for, as we have seen in recent years, it is not stock price or marketing prowess that fuels success, but a fundamental corporate adoption of the principles that have historically governed transactions, relationships, and partnerships.”

Pledging to his Fortune 100 followers that he wants to be “their philosopher for life,” Dr. Morris commits himself to regular communications with his audiences. He explains that, “the beauty of the One Week With program format is that it enables me to convey and reinforce information over time and as business conditions change.”
