Florida Institute of Finance College (FIFC) is fully dedicated to training professionals in the closely related fields of business valuation and financial analysis. We currently offer one graduate-level degree, the Master of Business Valuation (MBV). FIFC's fully-online distance learning approach is unique in that it integrates and applies the curriculum, and is on the cusp of a major paradigm shift in education; specialized degrees are moving out of the traditional university setting and are becoming tailored to the needs of professions. The sequence and content of the program's courses were developed by both academics and professionals with practical experience in teaching and working in this rapidly-growing, impactful career. Consequently, students who enroll in our program will receive up-to-date training in business valuation and financial analysis.

FIFC is affiliated with several leading valuation organizations and these organizations not only provide current materials, but they also provide networking and employment opportunities to our students.   In addition, most notably, upon successful completion of the first semester (two terms) of the program, students will receive the credential of Business Certified Appraiser (BCA) from the International Society of Business Appraisers (ISBA), a U.S. Small Business Administration “qualified source” to conduct small business appraisals. Further, upon the successful completion of the MBV program, FIFC MBV graduates meeting the standards of International Association of Certified Valuation Specialists (IACVS) credentialing will automatically be granted the International Certified Valuation Specialist (ICVS) credential without having to complete a separate comprehensive examination on valuation concepts.

The FIFC MBV program is grounded on pertinent themes arranged by sequential subjects and taught by experienced faculty. Unlike traditional programs that are presented course-by-course, FIFC's MBV program is totally blended, so that students capture the essence of being a working professional in these disciplines. Our students will gain experience with current software packages and databases used by valuation and finance professionals. Our scaffolded educational process incrementally and continuously builds upon the material mastered in prior terms. By the successful completion of the 18 month curriculum, students will have prepared four major valuation reports. These reports will demonstrate the skill sets acquired by the student and will be placed in a professional portfolio for presentation to future employers. Upon graduation, students also will be immediately able to establish a business valuation practice.
