CFTE courses are officially accredited by the Association of Corporate Treasurers in the UK
London, 21st February 2020 – CFTE has announced that three of its courses—AI in Finance, Fintech Foundation and Extrapreneurship are now accredited by the Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT).
The three courses were assessed according to the ACT’s curriculum and content standard to meet the requirements. AI in Finance and FinTech Foundations’ syllabuses jointly focus on current developments in Artificial Intelligence and financial technology within the financial services industry, alongside ways they can be leveraged by financial institutions. Extrapreneurship is an 8 weeks online programme designed to expose learners to the challenges and opportunities entrepreneurs face.
This further collaboration comes on the heels of a previous partnership between CFTE and the ACT which was announced in October last year, resulting in CFTE providing FinTech content for The ACT’s Advanced Diploma in Treasury Management Qualification.
Co-founder of CFTE, Tram Anh Nguyen said, “We are thrilled to strengthen ties with the ACT, an innovative and forward-thinking organisation as we are bound by the same ambition to bring education of Digital Finance to the world of Corporate Treasury. We are also delighted to have our signature courses accredited by ACT and we are looking forward to launching the global programmes on Open Banking and RegTech in the next few months.”
ACT Chief Executive Caroline Stockmann said, “Treasury knowledge and expertise are core to the profession, as well as opening up a host of new career possibilities to those who engage, whatever their background. Our annual research, the Business of Treasury, tells us that the strategic remit of the treasurer is increasing, and of course, technology plays an ever-increasing role in that remit. It’s therefore critical, as the membership body for treasurers, that we provide access to skills both via the ACT treasury and cash learning pathways, as well as the type of training offered by the CFTE. We are delighted therefore to be partnering on this with such a dynamic and leading-edge organisation, and look forward to working with the CFTE on this as well as future initiatives.”
This accreditation from a highly-regarded association serves to further CFTE’s mission of equipping financial professionals around the globe with the knowledge to solve modern challenges within the industry.
CFTE learners also receive a 10% discount for all ACT qualifications.
