The Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Lucknow has announced to invite applications for the fourth cohort of its Executive Programme in Strategic Finance, an official statement said. According to the statement, the programme has been developed in association with WileyNXT, Wiley’s online executive education programme partner. Furthermore, the fourth cohort of IIM Lucknow’s ‘Strategic Finance’ programme is scheduled to begin on October 14, 2022. The online executive learning programme is designed to support aspiring finance and strategy leaders.
It further added that the Executive Programme in Strategic Finance is a nine-month long online certification programme that builds strategic financial leadership skills for aspiring CFOs and professionals, allowing them to grow in a fast-evolving business landscape and navigate through a disruptive digital economy.
