The Global Corporate Finance Society

Governance

CFI is governed by the board members of the Global Corporate Finance Society (GCFS), a nonprofit society that seeks to serve professionals in the field of Corporate Finance around the world.

The GCFS board audits the FMVA program quarterly to ensure relevancy and industry standards are being met. By regularly examining course curriculum, the GCFS board is able to ensure CFI courses include the latest possible trends.

Breaking Down Barriers

Setting policy and providing direction

Differing levels of access to finance opportunities is a common problem across the globe. Lack of work experience and a bias towards educational background means true potential can often be overlooked.

Promoting Global Standards

Reviewing courses to maintain industry relevance

Collectively, this international group of seasoned finance professionals validate all Corporate Finance Institute certification standards, including assessing CFI exams every quarter and conducting thorough analysis of course material.

Meet the Global Corporate Finance Society Board

The Global Corporate Finance Society is led by a nominated board of 15 board members (12 independent) who have worked with some of the worlds largest and most prestigious financial organisations.
