IMA®<>(Institute of Management Accountants), one 
of the largest and most respected associations focused exclusively on the 
advancement of the management accounting profession, is accepting entries for 
the 2023 IMA AsiaPac Student Case Competition now through 3 February 2023. 
University students in the AsiaPac region are invited to participate in this 
challenging but rewarding competition.

The competition presents students with an opportunity to interpret, analyze, 
evaluate, synthesize, and communicate a solution to a management accounting 
problem. Students across the Asia Pacific will need to register and compete as 
a team of three to five members. Members of the group can be from different 
academic programs but must all be from the same institution/university. As part 
of the case competition, teams need to prepare and present virtually to IMA 
members and distinguished business professionals.

The 2023 case study was written by Charles R. Thomas Jr., Ph.D., CMA, CPA, 
CGMA, from Tarleton State University, James W. Hesford, Ph.D., from the 
University of Missouri-St. Louis, and Michael James Turner, Ph.D., from The 
University of Queensland. Participants will need to think strategically and use 
their analytical skills to solve the business case "Kunapipi Gardens: Transfer 
Pricing in The Service 
tition-kunapipi-gardens-transfer-pricing-in-the-service-industry/> which asks 
students to look at the fictitious hotel's current strategic position and to 
suggest an "ideal" performance measurement system.

The top three winning teams of the AsiaPac competition will be awarded prizes* 
consisting of a U.S. CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) Scholarship worth 
over US$2,000, Amazon gift vouchers, and the opportunity to participate in the 
Team Membership Program with an IMA chapter.** Additionally, the first place 
winning team will receive an exclusive career preparation and development 
mentoring session with Dr. Josh Heniro, senior director of Southeast Asia and 
Australasia at IMA.

"This competition encourages students to develop their strategic mindsets by 
analyzing real business challenges faced by enterprises," said Heniro "In 
addition, it fosters students' critical-thinking skills, the ability to make 
sound judgements, and excellent communication skills. These are the skills that 
are highly sought after in the profession. Over the years, we've noticed 
students are proposing more creative solutions to real-life problems, and we're 
looking forward to an engaging competition."
