Globalized companies operate in different countries in the world for a wide variety of reasons. These can be for the purpose of sourcing, capturing new investors, and new customers or whatever other reasons. As a matter of fact, operating internationally requires accomplishing international standards and procedures of accounting.

This course is designed to help future managers to understand and to produce financial statements that are useful to potential investors, lenders, and others under different accounting standards (e.g. IFRS or US-GAAP).

The approach we adopted will provide the participant with the latest view on the objectives of financial reporting, its qualitative characteristics, and harmonization procedures.
