Our Courses

Our professional development and certification courses are taught by scholar-practitioners with extensive experience in industry and academia.


The International Association of Certified Valuation Specialists, in conjunction with the Center for International Business Valuation, has added an advanced level to the International Certified Valuation Specialist (ICVS) credential; valuators can now earn the ICVS with Advanced Studies in Financial Instruments (ICVS-A). The ICVS-A designation requires an understanding of valuation techniques for various financial instruments, ranging from basic securities to complex derivative constructs. Upon completion of the training program, students can participate in the ICVS-A credentialing exam, which is comprised of a case study and valuation problems concerning derivative products. The test covers fair value accounting under both US GAAP and IFRS, the valuation of financial instruments (including derivative products), and the use of Python programming language (the language of choice for valuing financial derivatives)


The Center for International Business Valuation is please to offer the Certified Management Accountant (“CMA”) examination preparation course. A CMA is a professional designation in the accounting and finance world that demonstrates the professional has expertise in Financial Planning, Performance, and Analytics as well as Strategic Financial Management. The CMA training has been updated to incorporate the new 2020 technology-oriented questions.


Unlike traditional ScrumMaster training that focuses on the fundamentals of team-level Scrum, the SAFeScrumMasterCourse explores the role of the ScrumMaster in the context of the entire enterprise, and prepares attendees to successfully plan and execute the Program Increment (PI), the primary enabler of alignment throughout all levels of a SAFe organization. 


Currently, over 120 countries have converted their financial reporting systems to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and many governments are either advocating for or enforcing the transition. The Center for International Business Valuation has developed a comprehensive curriculum leading to a “Master Certificate in IFRS Planning, Implementation, and Support” (MC-IFRS-PISTM) to help organizations and countries train their employees on the use and implementation of IFRS in different capacities in preparation for this conversion.
