Case Submission Information

The MAS/IMA Teaching Case Conference is requesting case submissions. In addition to cases related to traditional management accounting topics, we are looking for cases on current topics such as Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, DEI, and Sustainability (ESG). In addition, we are seeking case ideas for a special workshop session.

Submission process

  • Cases will be accepted for consideration from April 1 until July 22, 2023
  • Submit cases together with teaching notes in electronic form to Dr. Christine Denison, email: caw@iastate.edu
  • Include in your email whether:
    • The submission is a case or a case idea
    • The case is unpublished or published/accepted for publication
    • You would like for the case to be considered for publication in IMA Educational Case Journal (IECJ)

Review Process:

  • Cases will be considered for conference acceptance by conference organizers and the IECJ Editorial Review Board.
  • The organizing committee encourages practitioner involvement as coauthors and presenters.
  • If the author would like for the case to be considered for publication by the IECJ, accepted cases will be forwarded to the IMA for first round review at IECJ. Authors will have the opportunity to modify their original documents to meet publication guidelines.


  • Authors will be notified of case acceptance by mid-August.
  • Cases accepted for presentation will be considered for the IMA Best Case Award that will be presented at the conference along with a $1,000 cash award. The winner of the Best Case Award will also be recognized and asked to present their case at the 2024 MAS Midyear Meeting in Orlando, FL (January 4 – 6, 2024).

Case Ideas: Elevator Speech and Workshop

  1. Do you have an idea or situation for a teaching case, but you’re still trying to work through the details or student learning objectives?
  2. Would you like to get feedback about your idea from an associate editor for the IMA Educational Case Journal?
  3. Could you benefit from guidance in designing your measures of efficacy?

Take advantage of this case idea submission category. Submit your case idea, along with the specific element(s) where you could benefit from feedback.

If your case idea is selected, you will make a brief presentation, then we will break out into workshop sessions where an IECJ associate editor and other conference attendees will discuss your idea, providing guidance and feedback.

The organizing committee is excited about the MAS Teaching Case Conference and looks forward to receiving your case submissions!
