The Moravian College Accounting Club is a student chapter of the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA). The mission of the club is to provide students with opportunities to learn more about the accounting profession as well as to connect with other students, the professional community, and the community at large. Students participate in a variety of networking events, alumni and professional panel discussions, field trips, and service work. The year is ended with an awards ceremony where we honor current student leaders, alumni, and induct new members into the IMA Accounting Honor Society.

They meet weekly to discuss current holdings and to present ideas for future purchases or sales of stocks and bonds. The club competes in national competitions and also sponsors trips to the New York Stock Exchange and other financial venues. Anyone with an interest is welcome.
Moravian Business Leaders (MBL)
Moravian Business Leaders (MBL) exists to provide an environment whereby students interested in business and associated disciplines can engage in discovery and growth, both as individuals and as aspiring professionals. Information pertaining to the fields of economics and business is obtained through involvement in this organization, along with participation in activities and events to improve the health of the community at large.
Our mission is to prepare members for the requirements of business endeavors, while cultivating humanism, professionalism, and ethical behavior through the employment of rich instruction, valuable resources, and structured mentorship. Club affiliates strive to involve members of the Moravian campus, Moravian alumni, and local community partners through sponsored events where members can obtain working knowledge of businesses and their processes. Through such experiences, we hope the members of MBL, as well as the Moravian Community, will grow and develop a greater sense of appreciation and responsibility both for themselves and for others.
