Join the Finance Leadership Programme – Class of '23 (May/Aug Exams)

A unique opportunity to kick start your Finance Leadership Programme (FLP) studies.

Introducing a free and highly interactive 8-week programme of study and exam support for any candidate at the Operational, Management or Strategic levels. It’s ideal for anyone studying, or planning to study for, CGMA Case Study exams in May or August 2023.

  • Join an award-winning Class of ‘23 (May/Aug Exams) and, in return for your commitment, you will receive a structured programme of study and exam support as outlined below. If followed, it will improve your chances of success in your chosen Case Study exam.
  • The programme contains more than 60 hours of support material, including:
    • Study Calendar -  A step-by-step weekly guide with downloadable learning resources to maximise your chances of exam success.
    • Recorded webcasts and articles, focussing on study techniques, time management and essential exam skills.
    • A dedicated Facebook group providing an opportunity to network with, and learn from, your peers, and to interact with CGMA staff.
    • Certificate of completion ― FLP Class of ’23 (May/Aug Exams).

This programme is designed to complement the FLP Case Study Review Course. It does not replace study of the technical knowledge (syllabus content) needed to pass CGMA exams. It does include support material that will allow you to take ownership of your learning and exam preparation. With advice on time planning, and insights from the CGMA exam markers, examiners and exam top performers, it will also ensure you’re aware of all the exam requirements.

This free-of-charge programme is for you if you:

  • Are planning to sit a Case Study exam in May or August 2023.
  • Need step-by-step guidance and additional learning support.
  • Want to get back on track with your studies and know where to start.
  • Have challenges around procrastination and time management.
  • Value peer-to-peer support and networking opportunities.
