As technology continues to disrupt global industries, the role of the CFO is evolving from being a transactional manager to a strategic business partner. The new-age CFO must partner with the CEO to make strategic business decisions, build predictive models to ensure market leadership, provide data-driven actionable insights for decision making, and apply digital technologies to make the finance function resilient and future-proof. The new-age CFO is expected to be a catalyst for business change, and yet research shows that only 5% of CFOs are future-ready.
This innovative Future-Ready CFO Programme will solve the critical industry problem of nurturing and building out the new-age finance leadership of tomorrow. The Programme will nurture and develop new-age finance leaders who wish to take on C-suite roles in the next few years. Aimed at current, new, and aspiring CFOs, it will empower them with future-relevant digital technologies and financial strategies to become key enablers of business transformation. It will build a growing community of future-ready finance leaders capable of driving growth in a fast-evolving business landscape.

We are confident that this Programme will resonate deeply with ambitious finance professionals who aspire to become new-age CFOs in the years ahead.
