IMA international is proud to have established several mutually beneficial projects in collaboration with the University of Sussex.

Our shared values: inspiring positive behaviour change, inclusivity, and continuous learning, underpin our informal partnership.

These collaborative projects include a range of initiatives, including:

- Summer internship opportunities.
- Ambitious about Autism internship placements.
- One-year placements for current students and recent graduates.
- Offering case study opportunities for master's students

Chris Grose, IMA’s Managing Director, also actively contributes by providing formal mentoring for business and marketing students and been a judge on a Dragon’s Den style presentation competition, for student groups studying entrepreneurship and business skills courses.

IMA has greatly benefited from this positive two-way relationship, not only gaining valuable insights from students, but also receiving feedback about our organisation. We are also pleased to have offered full-time employment to several interns following their placements.

These projects serve as a testament to our belief in the significance of nurturing relationships that foster knowledge sharing and promote collaborative growth.
Planting trees where they are needed most through our partner One Tree Planted! Every tree makes a positive impact for nature, wildlife, and people.
At IMA, we care deeply about the planet and giving back to nature, so we are thrilled to share that we have partnered with One Tree Planted to plant lots of trees!

About our partnership

We are always looking for new ways to reduce our carbon footprint and make our own contribution to the global effort of reducing carbon emissions. So, with One Tree Planted, we can reduce our emissions and help look after the natural environment.

In 2021, we partnered with One Tree Planted, and as a result of the partnership, we pledged to plant one tree for every participant on our open and tailor-made training courses. Find out more about our open courses and tailor-made training courses.

In 2022, our face-to-face training started again so we flew some of our consultants to different locations to deliver training and workshops. It was exciting to be back working in person with our trainers and participants, however, flying pollutes our atmosphere. To help make sure we are doing what we can to reduce our carbon footprint, we are carbon offsetting our consultant flights by planting more trees!

Why trees?

Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact.

Mangroves are vital for ecosystems, humans, and the world. They are carbon sinks, act as natural storm barriers, and provide habitats for fish and other animals. As a result, they are often called the ‘Guardians of the Shoreline’.

So, we are choosing to support the planting of Mangroves.
"The course will make me not only an effective and result-oriented leader but more importantly, help me to know myself better and how my team are possibly seeing me."
"I would encourage all prospective participants to use IMA as it will give them the opportunity to meet and interact with professionals in their fields of work from a wide international coverage. Sharing experiences and ideas is vital in this era of changing environments."
