Deloitte brings IFRS to the classroom

Deloitte is addressing the urgent need to bring International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) education into college classrooms. Through the formation of Deloitte's IFRS University Consortium, Deloitte is contributing essential IFRS resources and materials to help prepare and develop future accounting professionals. By contributing resources to academic institutions, such as Ohio State University and Virginia Tech, the Consortium is assisting in the enhancement of IFRS education for students.

Through intellectual and financial support, the Deloitte IFRS Consortium hopes to accelerate the integration of IFRS into school curriculums. This involves offering course materials, classroom guides and case studies, as well as providing access to other Deloitte resources. Participating schools have the opportunity to provide input in the direction, goals and resources of the program, including:

  • Participation in periodic Webcasts to share leading practices in the classroom

  • Involvement in defining the academic needs that need to be addressed by materials

  • Access to Deloitte IFRS information resources, publications, and training sessions – including support and guidance from experienced Deloitte professionals

    Universities that wish to participate in the Consortium will be asked to provide feedback and input about the program. (There is no cost for institutions to participate in the Deloitte IFRS University Consortium.) IFRS teaching materials and resources will be made available to all colleges and universities.

    For more information or to join the Consortium, please e-mail USDeloitteIFRSUniversityConsortium@deloitte.com.
