The International Federation of Accountants, headquartered in New York, NY, USA, employs skilled professionals who are involved in a wide range of technical and professional activities—including standard setting, strategy development, communications, and policy development.
Many of these individuals support the work of the standard-setting boards and IFAC's committees, which address issues related to auditing and assurance services, education, ethics, public sector accounting, small- and medium-sized practices, professional accountancy organization development, compliance, and issues pertaining to professional accountants employed in business.
"We met the head of communications, we met the CFO, the CEO–which are opportunities you don’t just get at any internship. This was so valuable."
Tatiana Rivera, 2021 IESBA Intern
"The opportunity to learn and engage and be truly on the cutting edge of so many important issues that are impacting the global accounting profession–which in turn has an impact for the broader society. You get to be a part of that if you want to."
Barry Naik, Director, Forum of Firms
