Executive Education’s Only Financial Officer

Skills for Smaller Company Financial Managers

The title “Chief Financial Officer” is not an accurate description for what many financial managers do because the word “chief” implies that the company has more than one. This seminar covers four major topics of importance to the financial manager who must do it all.

We have designed Only Financial Officer to give financial managers in small to medium-sized companies the high-level skills needed to act as a member of top management.
