The IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) Certificate program (40.5 CPE Credits) will distinguish you from other accounting and finance professionals and expand your career opportunities both in the U.S. and globally.
Since more than 125 countries require or permit the use of IFRS, taking this program will give you a distinct competitive advantage over your peers. As of January 1, 2018, those who successfully complete all courses in the curriculum will receive a certificate of achievement, a digital badge, a subscription to the eIFRS online subscription service and 40+ hours of CPE credit.
Why is IFRS relevant in the US, and for you?
- U.S. multinationals are headquartered across the U.S., so you could easily find yourself with a client that has IFRS requirements, either for itself or a non-U.S. subsidiary.
- You might increasingly find yourself structuring deals and transactions with IFRS counterparties, including vendors and customers. Understanding the implications of structuring these transactions and reporting using IFRS will require you to have more than a passing knowledge of the differences between IFRS and U.S. GAAP.
- As both the FASB and IASB continue their standard-setting agendas, you'll need to assess proposals and be concerned about divergence that could impact your financial reporting or audit responsibilities going forward.
Credit for individual courses purchased can be applied to the full program if purchased within one year.
