The Graduate School of Business and Entrepreneurship (hereinafter referred to as the “School”) invites students to learn the principles of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) based on ACCA’s DipIFR (Rus.) qualification.

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) is a set of common rules issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) that provide consistency and transparency in financial statements all over the world. IFRS have allowed to create a common accounting language and specify how companies must maintain and report their accounts, defining types of transactions, and other events with financial impact.

The companies in more than 113 countries (including European Union) make their financial reports that comply with IFRS, and such countries as Australia, Hong Kong and South Africa have already adopted IFRS or equivalents as their local Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).

ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) is the largest and fastest growing accounting body headquartered in London, UK, which unites professional accountants from all over the world. ACCA offers a wide range of qualifications, among which are ACCA Qualification, Foundations in Accountancy, Diploma in International Financial Reporting, to name a few.
