The FBM School of Business and Universidade Anhembi Morumbi just announced the creation of an important partnership in Brazil. The initiative provides students from Anhembi who have completed the Accounting degree program with the opportunity to obtain the IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) international certification from the ICAEW (The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales). The exams will be available in Portuguese and students will have access to theoretical and practical content developed by FBM, which will provide students with a significant advantage.

According to Eduardo Silva, managing partner of the FBM Group, the marketing landscape has required professionals to increase their knowledge to maintain a competitive edge in business. The FBM Business School supports its partners with their academic experience, making it the best solution in executive training. "With this initiative, we hope to train more professionals from around the country regarding the latest trends and updates related to IFRS," said Silva.

For Geni Vanzo, the coordinator of Anhembi’s Accounting program, the initiative is based on one of the pillars of the course, which is the development of accountants with a consistenly international vision. "Without a doubt, the reality we live in today is a borderless world, it is very important to achieve a certification of knowledge like this, as it gives the professional the opportunity to work in organizations in any economic sector within and outside the country," he highlights.

The IFRS international certification from the ICAEW offers benefits for professionals as it is recognized in over 165 countries, thus raising the level of proficiency and global connection. For corporations, the certification provides greater alignment with best corporate governance practices and transparency in financial statements.
