"The valuation profession will only grow in importance. New challenges and opportunities to enhance business and financial markets, and society at large, will confront valuers at a greater rate. Macro trends including climate change; a shift in the way we use and manage natural resources; population demographics; the proliferation of financial instruments; and the role of technology in business will shape, and be shaped by, the valuation profession. Asset values will evolve as these forces influence our day-to-day lives, and the importance of transparent and reliable valuations, including on balance sheets, will only become more important in our interconnected world."

Sir David Tweedie,

Chairman, International Valuation Standards Council

Who Does Not Need Valuation Today?

Whether you are working for value creation, value capturing, value distribution or tax collection, all are affected by valuation – be it courts, quasi-judicial authorities, governments, regulators, bankers, auditors, lawyers, investors and other stakeholders. Credible valuations are important in supporting economic activity, strengthening financial markets and protecting the public interest.

For any market economy, valuation of assets is crucial to various business areas, from transactions and financing to litigation, strategic management and compliance. Stakeholders and regulators are demanding greater transparency through fair value reporting. Global Financial Crisis revealed deep fault lines and taught many important lessons, one of those being that valuation really does matter! With accounting moving more and more towards value, there is need for competent and professional valuation experts globally.

Consisting of 22 modules, the course is delivered online over 3 levels and 12 months. The course is aligned to International Valuation Standards giving it a global flavour which is necessary in the present interconnected world.
