Boosting Business Acumen: Chicago Booth’s Executive Education Program in Finance Workshop for Non-Financial Leaders–Available in Hong Kong and Chicago - Chicago - The University of Chicago Booth School of Business introduces The Chicago Booth Approach to Finance Workshop (CBAFW), a transformative program designed for managers without accounting and financial backgrounds who wish to develop a solid understanding of measuring and communicating their firm’s economic performance.

This learning experience is adapted to the diverse backgrounds and learning styles of each participant—ensuring that every executive, regardless of their prior knowledge in finance and accounting, can fully grasp and apply the concepts taught in the program. Participants will leave the program with the skills to make informed financial decisions, leading to improved strategic planning and better financial outcomes for their organizations.

The program’s faculty director, Haresh Sapra, Charles T. Horngren Professor of Accounting, Chicago Booth, and one of the world's renowned Chicago Booth faculty, designed this program to optimize learning through an interactive experience.

“Finance and accounting concepts can be challenging for executives to comprehend, but are important in making critical business decisions with consequences. I sought to design a program that incorporates a combination of learning tools to maximize the learning impact,” says Professor Sapra.

Participants will begin their journey by viewing asynchronous professionally recorded online videos of Sapra’s lectures/research, building a solid foundation before they enter the classroom. Next, participants will attend two days of rigorous classroom lectures with Sapra. On day three, participants will engage, listen, and learn from Chicago Booth alumni through an exclusive guest panel addressing regional economic trends and complex financial decisions. These discussions will be tailored to your program location, whether at Chicago Booth’s Hong Kong or Chicago campus.

Throughout the program, participants will have the chance to network with a diverse group of professionals from various industries. This creates an invaluable opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences, and form lasting professional relationships.

To continue discussions after the program ends, attendees will be invited to join an exclusive social group that includes past participants of Sapra’s eight-week online program, the Chicago Booth Approach to Finance. Past participants of the online Chicago Booth Approach to Finance program will also receive a discount if they wish to continue learning by attending this new workshop program.

The program will culminate with a celebratory certificate ceremony to acknowledge the program participant’s accomplishment with Chicago Booth.
