IABFM Board Certifications & Designations are certification credential marks issued by the non-profit association known as the International Academy of Business and Financial Management. To receive authorization or accreditation to use IABFM Board Certification and Designations, the candidate must meet education, degree, examination, experience, continuing education, and ethics requirements, and pay the required good standing and/or certification fees. The IABFM Advisory Board remains an independent body.

Educational Licenses, Accreditation, and State Sanction.

The IABFM does not claim to be a college or university. The IABFM is an independent authority similar to other International Associations. The IABFM grants certificates, certifications, marks, designations, and charters much like hundreds of other legal educational and recognition institutes or associations in the United States. The IABFM strictly follows the criteria of the Ibanez decision in the United States. We encourage all members and certified members to meet all requirements for education, experience, testing, ethics, and continuing education. The IABFM licenses its marks and logos to others. The marks are generally licensed to individuals. The IABFM will license the IABFM and other marks and logos to companies, universities, or other uses upon the consent of its board. As e-commerce is a relatively new field, it is impossible for any association to have been in this field for any significant length of time. With this in mind, new and growing fields of study and practice should be given the opportunity to grow and flourish without government interference. IABFM claims no government sanction or alliance.
