Due to a demand for a recognized global designation, the International Institute of Business Valuers (iiBV) is proceeding with its first educational courses this fall, according to an interview with Michael Badham, executive director of iiBV. “Working with our partners in the Education Committees of ASA and CICBV, we hope to have plans finalized soon for the iBV designation.” The courses will be localized but will retain a consistent basis, according to Badham. “The initial course material will be in English, but we’re looking at offering in Arabic as well,” he says. There are other regions interested in offering the programs. “There’s a lot of interest from Latin America,” he says. “I recently visited Bogota, Colombia, to discuss with valuers, intermediaries, and regulators, and we have discussions underway.”
