IFBI is a breath of fresh air in relation to other tertiary level institutions. The attention to each student's individual needs, questions and concerns, coupled with the wealth of knowledge possessed by each lecturer, allowed for the smooth transfer of knowledge. The combination of academic learning, social engagement with like-minded individuals, as well as the sunny disposition of Professor Glenn Parmassar and other lecturers contributed to an overall great academic experience

I have been doing courses with International Forensics and Business Institute since 2009 and I have found that they are one of the best forensic, business and investigative tertiary training institutes that I have been exposed to so far in my 26 years of law enforcement. The course materials are in-depth and comprehensive and the lecturers are knowledgeable and professionals in their field making them quite capable of giving guidance in practical ways to real life scenarios of forensic investigations.


I have no regrets in making the investment in my forensic education with IFBI and I don’t think anyone would have any regrets either.

Dexter P, Attorney at Law , Businessman, Student

I have been fortunate to complete both my Degree and Masters Level qualifications in Forensic Accounting and Fraud Detection at the International Forensics and Business Institute. My internationally recognized qualifications will no doubt produce endless opportunities for me to further my career in this field. The classes were ideal and all the instructors were friendly, approachable and knowledgeable and they were always willing to take the time to provide additional assistance when needed. I was also fortunate to have Professor Glenn Parmassar, Forensic Expert as the main course instructor for these (and other experienced lecturers), whose knowledge and hands-on experience gave a window into the world of Fraud and Fraud detection that was priceless. Given these unusual times the Institute's easy online classes as well as the manageable examinations were great. IFBI maintains their high standards. I will continue to elevate my education and increase my intellectual diversity through other programmes offered by the International Forensics and Business Institute as they provide no less than the highest standards in their programmes.

The main course instructor enhanced my learning experience within this program. The professor was very helpful. He re- explained aspects of the program that students didn’t understand and sometimes engaged his class with humour. He was also very accommodating towards us. The other lectures were great and were able to engage the class thoroughly. They were friendly and very approachable; it was easy to ask them questions. The lectures were always interesting (I always looked forward to the classes to see what new I could learn). I enjoyed the group discussions and working on the case studies.

I successfully graduated in the IFBI EduQual Graduate Diploma in Forensic Accounting (Degree Level 6). Not having a financial background, I thought I would have problems grasping some of the concepts. That was short-lived. The lecturers, methodology and engagement surpassed my expectations. IFBI's lecturers and professional  administration were excellent and every effort was put into ensuring that the students understood the material presented. The use of case studies were apt and encouraged maximum engagement. The range of professions of the students further added to the energetic dynamics and viewpoints of the discussions. The knowledge gained and the concepts and principles can surely be used in whichever area of expertise we are in.

 

I would recommend this program for anyone in the field of, or aspiring to be, in finance, auditing or investigations.

I also want to commend International Forensics & Business Institute lecture and administrative staff. They were very professional, courteous and helpful and they even went out of their way to help us. They were always accessible. I was surprised that late at night or on weekends they would respond to our questions and issues. I never experienced this at some of the other places I studied. I am not computer savvy and on one of the occasions I had issues IFBI's representative stayed with me until i was able to solve my problem. I work in the public relations area  so i know good service when i see it and I have to say what a pleasure it was to interact with IFBI's personnel.

The International Forensics & Business Institute's EduQual Post Graduate Diploma (MBA Level 7 ) Program in Business Management & Leadership was an unbelievable opportunity for me. I was impressed by the program itself, the cost and how manageable it was. I was finally able to get a post graduate business level qualification to boost my career and even to develop my own leadership and entrepreneurship knowledge and skills. First of all, the cost of the program was the most affordable out there compared to the high cost of other similar programs. The second thing was that I completed in only 9 months. The third benefit was the program was quite manageable in content compared to the long hours and sleepless nights my colleagues have said they had endure doing other programs. The course  provided by IFBI was concise and contained all the important information needed to succeed in the program and to provide all the useful skills to apply. It did not contain tons of archaic, unnecessary content I've seen my other colleges have to study. IFBI's content is modern and cutting edge. The modules on successful business leaders like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Bezos and others and their habits were an eye opener and a really enjoyable part of the program for me. The online delivery was also a great bonus because of my late work hours I was able to still take in my lectures. IFBI lecturers were also knowledgeable, helpful and great lecturers.

I would highly recommend this program to anyone who whats to have an affordable and manageable Post Graduate MBA level qualification to enhance their promotion or career possibilities or develop their business and leadership  knowledge and skills.

Kino Q. - Coast Guard, Student
 

I was so elated for this International Forensics & Business Institute EduQual Graduate Diploma (Degree Level 6) in Financial Accounting. I was finally able to obtain a degree level qualification in financial accounting and I did not have to pay the costs or spend three years doing a university program or the ACCA route. I have several friends to are trying to do the ACCA route and who have to keep repeating several times because it is so difficult to pass their exams. This IFBI program was so manageable that I could complete in only 9 months. The modules and lectures are so well structured and detailed and also easy to study and follow. They also provide the full range of knowledge and skills to function as a professional accountant. IFBI's cost was also incredibly low for such a program. The cost of their full qualification is less that just one year of an ACCA or university program- and those run 3 or 4 years. Their payment plans also made it easy for me financially.

IFBI's lecturers were also very knowledgeable and were always accessible and helpful in ensuring that all students succeed in the the program. I liked the online delivery as it made it quite easy to do the program and not have to worry about the hassle of driving or even the health worries of these times.

I would highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to acquire a degree level financial accounting qualification and to be able to function as an accounting professional.

Harry N- Accounting Professional - Graduate

The International Forensics & Business Institute's EduQual Professional Graduate Diploma (Degree Level 6) in Internal Auditing is a great program. This program allowed me to finally get a degree level qualification in Auditing and allow me to practice  as an Internal Auditor. I had tried to get the CIMA qualification but found it was a very difficult program to complete- and that program did not even give me a degree level qualification as this IFBI EduQual program does. The cost of this program was also excellent. It was quite affordable and the payment plans made it quite easy to study for the qualification. The modules were also excellent and provided the full range of both knowledge and skills to practice as a professional internal auditor. They were relevant and to the point. IFBI's lecturers were also excellent and they were always courteous and helpful.The online delivery also worked really well and made it easy for me to do the classes and not to have to worry about traffic and commuting. The online delivery was also a huge advantage. Because IFBI's online system was also optimised for phone delivery there were times I was able to still take in the lectures with my headphones while travelling.

I would highly recommend this program for anyone who wants to improve on their internal auditing qualifications or even go into this field.

International Forensics & Business Institute - The gold standard in forensic & business training and expertise.

The International Forensics & Business Institute’s EduQual   Graduate Diploma (Degree Level 6) in Risk Management & Compliance is an unbelievably excellent program. It combines risk analysis, risk management and anti-money laundering into a great program and provided me with both the practical skills and knowledge in all these important areas. The modules were well designed covering all the important theory aspects and also provided excellent practical skills. I especially enjoyed the practical cases studies in AML compliance and risk management. IFBI’s lecturers were also quite knowledgeable and very helpful. They took time to explain everything in detail and in simple terms so all students could easily follow. I come from the financial services sector so I know how important this qualification is to have and what a high paying field it is. This qualification is a big boost to my career. It is also at a degree level so it is even at a higher level than the available traditional shorter programs in these disciplines.

 

I happily recommend this program to anyone who wants to become a professional in AML compliance and risk management or who wants to venture into an exciting and lucrative profession.
