Intensive Course on IFRS

June 2017
Courtyard by Marriott, Zurich


Does your company report in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), or are you responsible for preparing the financial statements in compliance with IFRS? Is your company considering a move to IFRS? Or do you simply want to extend or to refresh your IFRS expertise? Then PwC’s intensive course on IFRS is right for you.


Our module based IFRS course will help you deal with IFRS professionally and apply the standards competently by giving you:

  • a solid basic understanding of the most important IFRS/IAS standards and of recent developments
  • detailed knowledge of the content of these standards and how they are applied.

You will learn how IFRS facilitates transparent external reporting. But you will also find out how to use it as a helpful instrument that supports you in assessing the financial position of your company and in recognising priorities. The course shows you how to put the theory into practice.

Methodology and organisation

All modules are specially designed for finance specialists and users of IFRS. In class you have presentations, group work, case studies and sharing sessions to expand and apply what you have learned.

Although all participants are invited to join all 5 modules, please keep the following in mind while registering: on day 4 we will look at IFRS 15 and IFRS 9 from the viewpoint of corporate entities. On day 5 we will tailor the discussion for the needs of the financial services industry, with a focus on IFRS 9.
