Never before has the role of a CFO been more complex. As strategic business partner and advisor to the CEO, today's CFOs are required to juggle multiple portfolios: strategic leader, investor relations manager, moral conscience and risk manager. In Asia, where family firms and government organisations dominate, conducting business also presents its own unique challenges and opportunities. With this dynamic environment in mind, NUS Business School and The University of Chicago Booth School of Business have assembled an interdisciplinary team of faculty from the fields of economics, finance, accounting, strategy and leadership to create the NUS–Chicago Booth Emerging CFOs for Asia Programme.
Drawing upon NUS and Chicago Booth's global expertise in finance and economics research, the Emerging CFOs for Asia Programme will help senior finance executives in Asia strengthen their leadership and analytical skills, effectively manage stakeholder relations, and drive strategic direction to lead enterprise transformation. The curriculum will take into account Asia's unique dominant shareholder environment, in contrast to diffused ownership structures in the West. The course also includes keynotes from distinguished practitioners who will describe how they have managed strategic challenges in their organisations.
Emerging CFOs for Asia is the first programme in the Asia Executive Series.
