CORPORATE FINANCE MANAGEMENT
The recent announcement by Nigeria of its adoption of IFRS from January 1, 2012 has brought to the fore the need for the Institute to build capacity and enhance the technical skills of its members who will function within the evolving principles-based financial reporting framework. Accordingly, the Corporate Finance Faculty designed a programme for the benefit of chartered accountants and other persons who either have governance responsibilities or are involved in the financial reporting chain irrespective of the sector of the economy in which they function. The programme has since received commendations from both the regulators and members.
It is all instructive to note that, a specialist training programme in corporate finance management has been approved to up-skill chartered accountants in money and capital market transactions and other related issues. The programme has been benchmarked against Masters Degree Programme in Finance and CFA qualifications.
