LOGAN, UTAH and LONDON (PRWEB) October 17, 2014
Utah State University, working in conjunction with IASeminars Ltd., has identified a global need for specialized training and certification in U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (US GAAP) which is the basis of financial reporting for most US public and private corporations and their international affiliates.
Numerous financial professionals around the globe are perhaps well-versed in International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) or other basis of accounting, but may lack specialized knowledge about US GAAP. Furthermore, many others working in the US domestic financial and business environment may seek a working knowledge of US GAAP without necessarily wanting to study for the full CPA (Certified Public Accountant) designation.
Utah State University (USU) is therefore pleased to announce that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with IASeminars, a global financial training company headquartered in London, to jointly offer a new certificate in US GAAP intended for the global marketplace. Under this agreement, USU accounting faculty will design a topical curriculum and seminar series, culminating in an examination process. Much of the learning will be online self-study, with a final week of live training and testing to be offered in various US and international locations. Successful participants will be awarded the official USU Certificate in US GAAP.
For more information, please contact IASeminars.
