CFO’s Executive Programs


The CPA Alberta CFO Executive Program Certificate is a two-component curriculum designed to provide you with the foundation for success. The CFO’s Leadership Program will focus on management and leadership skills, while the CFO’s Operational Skills Program will focus on core technical and operational skills.

You can choose to complete only one of these programs, but if you complete both components you will receive a certificate of completion.

CFO's Leadership Program focuses on developing the skills of an influential leader in your organization.

What past participants have said

The blend of the Operational and Leadership course is a fantastic program to help clarify the role of the CFO. There was a wide range of topics covered and some very real tools provided to help any aspiring, and refresh even the seasoned professional. I wish I would have done this 10 years ago, it would have given me the perspective needed to reduce my stress load.
Monique Dery, CFO's Leadership Program participant
The CFO Leadership Course will definitely add value to any organization. The format and structure permits your organization's CFO to slow down from the daily pressures and really focus on the material and their own professional development. This program should be mandatory for anyone in a senior financial leadership role.
