Course Overview
International Financial Reporting (IFRS) is the indisputably global solution for any country in the world to integrate into the international capital markets. There is virtually no room for a local solution in this category, and an increasing number of entities are moving to IFRS. Access to capital from both the domestic and international arena is inextricably linked to the integrity and international credibility of financial reporting. The IFRS standard setters have been pursuing a process of revamping standards to improve global financial reporting and this course is a necessity for IFRS preparers and users to be up-to-date with current standards and trends. This course offers the learner a comprehensive understanding of the essential elements of IFRS; beginning by building on the foundations laid by the IASB’s mainstream IFRS standards. The course develops key skill competencies through the application of sound theoretical content within a practical, real-life inspired case-study based environment.
