MIT Partnership

The CFO Leadership Council & MIT Executive Education have had a long-standing strategic partnership, collaborating on many initiatives over the years – CFO Week, CFO Accelerator, the MIT Sloan CFO Summit & more. MIT is world renowned and brings a new level of gravitas to the CFO Leadership Council community benefits.

​“It is an honor to be working with MIT.  The mission of the CFO Leadership Council is to empower CFOs, and by collaborating with MIT we are able to bring our members the opportunity to enhance their strategic leadership skills and create value for the organizations they lead.  A few years back CFO Leadership Council and MIT Sloan Executive Education co-created CFO Week, a one-of-a-kind learning and networking experience, designed for CFOs and other financial leaders. We look forward to continue offering this as an annual event”

Testimonials from past CFO Accelerator Attendees

“It was genuinely the best development program that I’ve attended in a long time.  I left highly energized with some new perspectives and new tools.  In fact, over one year later, I am still applying some of the things I learned.  I also loved the opportunity to interact with a small group of fellow CFOs in an environment that encouraged sharing and advising.  These are phenomenal instructors.  People should invest in themselves and take advantage of the chance to learn from them.”
– Sandra Clarke, CFO, Blue Shield of California

​“Attending the CFO Accelerator course was an excellent use of my time.  I found all MIT faculty to be engaging. The content was thought-provoking and relevant. The small group setting was beneficial as it allowed for deeper conversations with my peers. Overall, it exceeded my expectations. “  
​- Kim Eiring, CFO, Mutual Materials Company

​“Relevant, Engaging, Inspiring and Actionable!  These are the words that resonated in my mind as I attended the inaugural program last year. I have attended a few of these over my career and none left such a lasting impression as the Sloan program!  In 5 days they managed to impart relevant ideas, thoughts to improve effectiveness and how to drive innovation in the work environment.  I would strongly recommend this to CFOs who want their role to evolve to what is needed in today’s environment: a strategic and operational who can be an effective change agent!”
– Sandip Grewal, CFO, Bradshaw International

“I attended the MIT Sloan CFO Accelerator program last year and cannot say enough great things about the program.  The speakers were excellent and covered a wide range of topics that were particularly relevant to my role as VP & Controller.  By incorporating several of the ideas and suggestions that were discussed in my daily tasks I felt I was able to achieve a higher level of effectiveness.  The program also provided a wonderful networking opportunity to connect with and hear from others who function in similar roles.”
– Nancy L. Gleason CPA, VP & Controller
