About the programme

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), is rapidly becoming a benchmark for the accounting world.

Diploma in IFRS (Diploma IFRS) from the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants is one such qualification which can provide a detailed conceptual insight into IFRS. A diploma from ACCA (U.K.) is widely recognised in India and around the world.
