Chief Financial Officer Programme (CFO)

Leadership and General Management Programmes

Chief Financial Officer Programme (CFO)

This programme is designed to equip participants with the skills and expertise to be an effective CFO in the 21st-century workplace. As we see the CFO's evolving role as a strategic partner, this programme will help participants evaluate businesses' strategies to make better strategic financial decisions. It will help gain knowledge about a business's value drivers and leveraging them to maximize business value and financial performance. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of managing capital markets, financial performance and regulations, stakeholder management, etc. It provides the tools and frameworks to build strategic alliances with critical stakeholders, and enhance their leadership skills to lead an organization through globalization and growth.

The programme is divided into two broad modules - CFO essentials and the Future CFO. The first module provides critical insights on contemporary developments in the financial ecosystem, and lays foundation on the linkage between corporate strategy and firm value creation. The first module also emphasises the need and importance of data-driven decision making and how that improves overall corporate governance and investors' confidence. The second module discusses themes that are important for any CFO to become a strategic thinker. The second module highlights how greater external uncertainty and digital disruptions have changed the business landscape and thus the role that a future CFO should play.

    Post my MBA from NUS Singapore, in May2021, I came across the CFO Programme by IIM Calcutta with the huge opportunity to network amongst the top Finance Leaders in India, which looked exciting, and I jumped in. These weekend online classes were the best learning platforms to enrol for with the IIM Calcutta Brand. The classes, exams, presentations and case studies were well conducted, with a couple of visits to the IIM Calcutta campus (the best part). This CFO batch 1 is very active, and after our graduation, we are looking forward to our first alums meeting in Hyderabad in Feb 2023, and that’s one of the best takeaways from the Programme.

    This Programme has helped unleash the thought process required when entering CXO levels. The structure and scope of the programme are designed to align with market needs, and this programme being offered by IIM Calcutta was the icing on the cake. Other programmes were limited to a particular subject like Analytics and Strategic Thinking, but this programme has a mix of all, so it stands out. Further, the classes taken by Prof. Ashok Banerjee and Prof. Koushik Roy were so exciting that we used to wait with excitement. Finally, the campus immersion gave us a 360 –degree view of how to look at the same situation from multiple points of view.
