International Financial Reporting Standards Webinar

We are happy to announce our third in a series of brown bag lunches: IFRS – International Financial Reporting Standards. 

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are a set of accounting standards developed by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) that is becoming the global standard for the preparation of public company financial statements. By adopting IFRS, a business can present its financial statements on the same basis as its foreign competitors, making comparisons easier. Despite a belief by some of the inevitability of the global acceptance of IFRS, others believe that U.S. GAAP is the gold standard, and that a certain level of quality will be lost with full acceptance of IFRS.

The presentation will last 30 – 40 minutes and will be given by one of our finest CTU faculty, Kristine Brands.  Kristine has vast experience in finance, accounting and IT where she has had a number of positions including being a controller of small high tech companies, a software designer, internal auditor, director of financial systems and a consultant.  Kristine has taught undergraduate and graduate finance, accounting, and computer programming courses.

Kristine has an MBA in Finance and Accounting, a Certificate in Software Engineering and is currently a doctor of Management student at CTU. Kristine's undergraduate degree is in history and she holds both CPA and CMA certificates.

We look forward to seeing you at this “brown bag lunch”. Please join us for what will be a great presentation!
