The application deadline is March 15 for the spring semester of the online master’s in business valuation (MBV) program at Florida University Southeast (FUSE), and classes start April 1. At the recent Second Annual Conference on the Art and Science of Business Valuation, Heidi DiCicco, FUSE president, talked about the program, which consists of three semesters (six months each). After successful completion of the first semester, students will receive the credential of Business Certified Appraiser (BCA) from the International Society of Business Appraisers (ISBA). By the end of the program, students will have successfully prepared a portfolio having four different financial analysis and valuation reports. FUSE MBV graduates meeting the standards of International Association of Certified Valuation Specialists (IACVS) credentialing will automatically be granted the International Certified Valuation Specialist with Advanced Studies in Financial Instruments (ICVS-A) credential without having to complete a separate comprehensive examination on valuation concepts. In addition, the MBV prepares students to sit for the Level 1 Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) examination, and various business valuation and appraisal certifications, such as the Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA), Certified Business Appraiser (CBA), and Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA).
