IFRS Certificate Programme

Metal Globes

Format: Online Course (self-study online)

The International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), issued by the International Accounting Standard Board (IASB), are becoming the global accounting standard for how companies prepare financial statements.

The progress towards the goal of a global language for financial reporting is no longer a vision of the IASB. It is reality.  Approximately 126 countries require the use of IFRS Standards by public companies, while most other jurisdictions permit the use of IFRS Standards in at least some circumstances.

The IFRS Certificate Programme gives participants the skills to compete effectively in today’s global business environment. A grounding in IFRS will distinguish participants from other accounting and finance professionals and expand their global career opportunities.
