The IFRS Certificate program will give you the skills in international financial accounting and reporting that you need to compete effectively in today's global business environment. A grounding in IFRS will distinguish you from other accounting and finance professionals and expand your career opportunities both in the U.S. and globally.

With more than 120 countries that either require or permit the use of IFRS, this knowledge is a fundamental core competency for accountants in business & industry, independent external auditors, and other finance professionals. Starting January 1, 2018, participants 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, plus over 40 hours of CPE credit.

Why is IFRS relevant in the US?

  • The most obvious impact is the need to prepare or audit financial statements of non-U.S. subsidiaries of U.S. multinationals. U.S. multinationals are headquartered across the U.S. and auditors and accountants may easily find themselves with a client with IFRS requirements.
  • Financial professionals will more often find themselves structuring deals and transactions with IFRS counterparties, including vendors and customers. Understanding the implications of structuring the transactions and reporting using IFRS requires 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, financial professionals will need to assess proposals and be concerned about divergence that could impact their financial reporting or audit responsibilities as time goes by.

Learning Objectives

  • Obtain the necessary proficiency in complex International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) areas including financial instruments and business combinations.
  • Acquire a broad overview of key IFRS definitions and concepts.
  • Apply the fundamental principles of IFRS across a range of accounting topics.
  • Understand the accounting impact of the latest standards and amendments issued by the IASB.

Who Will Benefit?

  • Accounting and finance professionals that work for private or public multi-national organizations whose parent entity or subsidiaries have adopted IFRS
  • Accountants in public practice that provide audit or assurance services to private or public multi-national organizations that have adopted IFRS
