International Nuclear Management Academy (INMA)

INMA is a collaboration framework through which universities provide master’s degree programme focusing on management aspects for the nuclear sector to improve safety, performance and economics of nuclear technologies in Member States.

The INMA is an IAEA-facilitated collaboration framework with leading nuclear engineering and science universities in Member States that aim to establish a master’s programmes tailored to the industry needs and to managers in the nuclear sector. It offers a set of common requirements for master’s programmes with specialized focus on advanced aspects of management in nuclear technology, science and engineering.

INMA provides a basis for participating universities to collaborate and to provide sustainable Nuclear Technology Management (NTM) education programmes that reflects the industry’s best practices and accumulated knowledge. It also strives to promote collaboration among universities to develop joint programmes and share educational resources, materials and tools. Under INMA initiative universities actively contribute to the programme development and proceed to incorporate the INMA requirements into its existing curricula.

INMA-NTM programmes are intended for students from both with or without existing nuclear power programme countries.

IAEA also supports universities with INMA peer review missions to benchmark the curriculum of their master’s programmes against minimum standards and adaptation of the industry changes.

The results of this peer review missions are expected to help Member States to develop their Nuclear Technology Management master’s degree programmes to fill gaps in nuclear managerial competencies. The INMA-NTM programme specifies 47 Competency Areas that are expected to be acquired by students upon their graduation.
