IFBI International Accreditation and Affiliations

The vision of the International Forensics & Business Institute (IFBI) is to be a premier global leader of the highest quality forensic & business education and expertise. Specialized program recognition such as IFBI’s forensic accounting, forensics, business, accounting, law and other programs is a voluntary process that comes from an institution’s willingness to adhere to the strict standards and guidelines for education and practice in these areas from the established bodies, associations and organizations that govern these standards and practices. To this end IFBI submits to the standards, guidelines and practices of a number of prestigious regional and international member organizations. This is achieved through both direct organizational membership and affiliation or through IFBI’s Governing Council’s designated member representative to these organizations. The benefit of the resources of these bodies is implemented in the development of IFBI’s curricula and quality management systems and is passed on directly to our students and stakeholders. This gives an IFBI’s program qualification a premier global pedigree and aims to fulfill its vision of being a premier global leader in forensic and business education and expertise.
