- PRESS RELEASE
Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA) has signed an exclusive partnership with KPMG, a big 4 accounting firm providing audit, tax and advisory services to provide International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) training programmes in Qatar.
IFRS is fast becoming the benchmark for the accounting world. Programme participants will reap the benefits of learning from industry professionals who have global exposure to IFRS.
Initially, the courses will focus on Qatar. However, in the near future, the courses will be open to regional and international participants.
Earlier this year, as part of the Qatar Banking Summit 2012, QFBA and KPMG organised a workshop for finance professionals from the Qatari Banking sector. At the same summit, QFBA discussed its plans to launch an IFRS training initiative targeting finance professionals in the banking sector.
This recent signing comes days after QFBA, an all-encompassing training provider, certificate regime developer and examination administrator, launched its 2013 Program.
Dr Abdulaziz Al Horr, CEO of QFBA, said: "The Qatar Finance & Business Academy's prime objective remains supporting the growth of Qatar's leading financial services centre through learning and development. This is part of the wider strategy of helping to diversify Qatar's economy and create a world-class knowledge based economy. The partnership with KPMG is the most recent of the programmes and services offered by QFBA which contribute towards the achievement of this goal."
Gopal Balasubramanian, Partner KPMG said: "IFRS is becoming the reporting standard globally in a changing environment. Our alliance with the QFBA would equip professionals to be prepared for the developments and understand the impact of changes. We are delighted to partner with QFBA, a premier organisation dedicated to learning and development and for offering unique training solutions to various business segments in Qatar."
