MONTREAL, May 19, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - McGill University's School of Continuing Studies has partnered with The Canadian Institute of Chartered Business Valuators (CICBV) to offer a new non-credit Professional Development Certificate in Business Valuation.
McGill is the first university in Canada to offer this certificate, with courses beginning in Fall 2016. "We are very pleased to partner with CICBV to offer a comprehensive Professional Development Certificate program in the growing field of Business Valuation – the first program in Canada to be delivered in live classroom instruction format," says Inna Popova-Roche, Director, Non-Credit Programs, Career and Professional Development at McGill's School of Continuing Studies. "This new program will be very attractive for many professionals involved in valuations, taxation, estate planning and other advisors.
Business valuation plays an integral role in mergers and acquisitions, corporate tax planning, litigation, quantification of damages, venture capital and private equity. The Professional Development Certificate in Business Valuation will provide learners with sound working knowledge of business valuation theory and practice. The certificate meets the CICBV's educational requirements and prepares participants to take the CICBV Membership Qualification Exam. Those who pass the Exam and obtain the prerequisite 1,500 hours of suitable experience are eligible to be awarded the Chartered Business Valuator (CBV) designation, the premiere credential for professional business valuators and litigation support advisors in Canada.
"The Canadian Institute of Chartered Business Valuators is delighted to partner with the McGill University's School of Continuing Studies in their Professional Development Certificate Program in Business Valuation," says Bob Boulton, CICBV Director, Education and Standards. "We have worked with McGill to design a program that substantially covers the same material as the courses in the CICBV educational program, and gives individuals the opportunity to receive live instruction in business valuation from an experienced CBV."
The seven-course certificate consists of four required and three complementary courses. The first course, Level 1-Introductory Business Valuation, will be offered in Fall 2016. Admission to the program is now open.
