WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management and The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) have launched the CIMA CFO Program as part of their cooperation agreement. Developed for top executives, this program provides finance and accounting content and enables them to acquire an internationally recognized professional qualification.
“Due to their immense level of responsibility, countless activities and obligations, Senior Finance Managers have little time to devote to their own continuing professional development. The CIMA CFO Program is designed as a “fast-track” course focusing on strategic and risk management as well as financial strategy for C-level executives and senior management,” says Jakub Bejnarowicz, Associate Director Europe, CIMA.
The CIMA CFO Program has already been successfully implemented in other countries such as the UK, Poland, China and Africa. “We are pleased to be taking this step together with WHU in Germany,” adds Jakub Bejnarowicz.
“The CIMA CFO Program is an exciting addition to our portfolio of Open Enrollment Programs,” says Dr. Rebecca Winkelmann, Managing Director, WHU Executive Education. The program is targeted at CFOs, CEOs and finance executives, candidates holding a finance degree, or an MBA/Master in Controlling or Accounting. At least ten years’ professional experience in finance or business is required to apply. The course is delivered in English.
“The launch of the CIMA CFO Program is another step in our intensive cooperation with CIMA,” emphasizes Professor Dr. Utz Schäffer, Director of the Institute for Management Accounting and Control (IMC) at WHU. By joining forces we want to promote and strengthen the competencies of financial controllers and finance professionals in Germany”. Further joint programs are planned.
