IFRS - Practical Application and Comparison to U.S. GAAP

Offered via KPMG Executive Education, IFRS - Practical Application and Comparison to U.S. GAAP is an intensive three-day course that is designed to provide an understanding of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), some of the key differences between IFRS and U.S. GAAP and what is required to reconcile those differences.

It is designed for financial executives of U.S. subsidiaries of foreign companies, as well as for executives of U.S. domiciled companies interested in accessing capital markets outside the United States which require the preparation of financial statements in accordance with IFRS.  Past sessions received excellent marks from attendees for both the extent of the topics covered and the practical knowledge of the presenters.
