The CFO100 program is a joint effort between RENEW, Global Affairs Canada and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) to increase the credibility, quantity, and quality of CFOs and finance managers in Ethiopia. The CFO100 program will combine an intensive self-study training around ACCA’s selected papers alongside a practical training from RENEW.

The CFO100 program provides a strong foundation of advanced accounting and real-world financial management skills that is designed to give participants a career advantage.

We have just opened the application process for our third cohort of the CFO100 program which begins in February 2019. The application deadline is January 14, 2019.

Apply here for RENEW's CFO 100 Program and become a finance leader in your company. For more information on how to apply, eligibility and the admission process, contact our team member Filseta Asrat (

Here's what previous graduates are saying...

“The training was excellent. The CFO 100 program contributed to keeping updating myself on accounting skills, professional networking, budgeting experience, work with a team, building confidence, time management [...] The program also provided me with the opportunity to register for ACCA, on September 2018. I recommend the program to other financial professionals.”

Emebet Beyene, CFO100 second cohort graduate

"Joining the CFO 100 program, it was my expectation to acquire some inputs about what a well-equipped finance person would possess as a skill and attributes and […] I have been exposed to these through the classroom sessions and experience sharing stages created in the program.”

Alazar Zeleke, CFO100 Program second cohort top score graduate and ACCA Member
