Finance specialization

Program Overview and Requirements

Program Overview

The way companies do business has fundamentally changed, with new business models disrupting how companies sell products and services. In order to adapt, CFOs and finance leaders look to bring in new technology and partners they can trust—to create resilient finance organizations that adapt faster, work smarter, and perform better. Organizations are looking for partners with proven finance skills, to truly understand the nuances of product-centric and service-centric business models and enable dynamic finance organizations.
