CFO - Chief Financial Officer

Program's message

Although businesses in Vietnam has continued to grow and expand, its national financial activities, as well as its financial management ability, still has much to improve when compared to the robust management systems worldwide. PACE understands that for businesses to succeed, the role of the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is undeniably important, even for small businesses.  Even if an enterprise with a strong development strategy is doing well, not having a competent CFO to implement an effective financial management system may expose the business to many risks. PACE is subsequently offering the special training program for CFOs in Vietnam to enhance their ability to perform and close the skills and knowledge gap with other countries worldwide. 

The portrait of the current CFO has evolved over the years. What made a CFO successful from the last decade may not translate to a successful CFO of today. After emerging from a national economic model based on the “close the door” policy, Vietnam has quickly integrated into the world economy with the development of businesses in various sectors and industries. Today, as Vietnam has set aside many business barriers, the country is learning to compete with the world, including competing in financial management ability. A CFO, thus, must not only be able to compete with local businesses in the country, but also business in the international market to ensure the company’s success.

With this background of the current state of finance in Vietnam and the potential that it holds, PACE researched, designed and composed this special training program with the desire to contribute to a common objective to prepare and equip the new generation of CFOs in the business community, who have the desire to build their financial management capacity to help their companies compete on the global market.

Moreover, PACE believes that a CFO is not only a position a product of an assignment decision but also a career a product of a methodical and systematic training and practicing process.  PACE’s training program will, thus, provide you with the fundamental and updated knowledge needed by a professional CFO that will leverage your career experience and enable you to become a professional CFO.

PACE trainers are Vietnamese experts who have in-depth knowledge and profound experience in finance and accounting. They are also committed professionals with a passion to bridge the financial management gap between Vietnamese executives and their global counterparts.

The CFO program offers a flexible schedule-day or evening classes, thereby accommodating busy executives with challenging time constraints to complete the program in 04 months or 2.5 months.
