Odgers Berndtson is proud to partner with the Rotman School of Management on the Business Leadership for Finance Executives Program, a program designed to help develop the strategic and leadership competencies which are now so important for success in the CFO role.
This innovative partnership was built on the results of a comprehensive Canadian study, led by Odgers Berndtson and The Rotman School of Management.
