Professor Steven Hirsch, CPA, CGMA was the founding faculty leader of the student chapter and has done an outstanding job.  He teaches at the Metro State Midway campus.  Each year, he also presents multiple CMA scholarships to his students.  Founded in 2015, the Twin Cities Student Chapter was the first one in the history of the IMA.
