The CFO Program is the definitive program for aspiring or new CFOs, and for experienced CFOs who wish to refresh their base skills and knowledge. The program has two components – Operational Skills, which examines the core technical, systems and procedural skills, and Leadership Competencies, which emphasizes the leadership skills that provide the foundation for success for CFOs.

Upon completion of both components, participants will receive the Institute’s CFO Program Certificate of Completion. There is no particular order in which the two programs must be completed as both programs focus on separate and distinct skills.
