Rajnish Magan

Rajnish Magan, FCMA, CGMA Chief Financial Officer, Beumer India ‘I chose the CIMA Global C-Suite Business and Finance programme to enhance my strategy-building abilities. The programme exposed me to the different approaches I can take to build business strategies. I learned about the critical success factors I can use to evaluate different strategies. The programme was well-structured for senior leaders. The classroom-based lectures were led by expert faculty that provided guidance on how to tackle the Strategic Case Study exam, as well as offer online support for mock case studies. I strongly recommend the programme to senior finance professionals to hone their skills in business strategy. The programme will help them to work closely with the CEOs and boards of their organisations in evolving and implementing key business strategies’

Gaurav Jain

Gaurav Jain, FCMA, CGMA Chief Financial Officer and Member of Executive Committee, AXA France VIE (India Reinsurance Branch) ‘With a long career in global organisations, I was looking to improve my strategy management skills. The CIMA Global C-suite Business and Finance Programme taught me how to analyse business situations and conditions practically and from multiple perspectives. I was able to envision the needs of multiple stakeholders in various situations. I used the skills I learned to forge stronger partnerships with the business team and the CEO of my organisation. The course was content-rich and designed to fit the busy schedules of senior executives without sacrificing existing professional commitments. I was given ample time to complete the course and had the opportunity to network with professionals from around the world. I recommend this programme to finance professionals that want to boost their competitive advantage’

Debasish Roy

Debasish Roy, FCMA, CGMA Chief Financial Officer — MEA Region, Majorel ‘I have more than 25 years of corporate experience, with the last ten years as the country CFO of Majorel for India. I was looking forward to a larger role, and the CIMA Global C-Suite Business and Finance Programme was exactly what I needed to prepare for my current role as the regional CFO. The course material is very relevant and up-to-date, and blends academics with practical experience. I liked how the course was designed, with the case study providing a practical way of understanding what we learned. In the exam, I was asked to provide feedback which captures strategy, finance and risk management skills — all highly relevant to my day-today responsibilities. Not only does this course have global recognition, but it helps finance professionals to enhance their decision-making capabilities. It helps finance professionals to build on their technical expertise and develop strategic, people and leadership skills’.

Srividya Krishnan

Srividya Krishnan, FCMA, CGMA Transfer Pricing Specialist, Transfer Pricing Solutions Pty. Ltd. ‘I chose the CIMA Global C-Suite Business and Finance Programme to better serve global stakeholders, enhance my communication skills and grow my professional network. Through the program, I developed skills and strategies to add value at work. I learned how to think creatively and identify new opportunities for my organisation. The Strategic Case Study taught me how to look beyond my current role, act as an efficient business advisor and help my organisation to make high-impact business decisions. The pace of change in finance will only get faster, and the course helps finance professionals stay up-to-date. I recommend the course for all who want to become a future leader and get global recognition for their integrity, ethics, and business acumen’

Tarun Mittal

Tarun Mittal, FCMA, CGMA Assistant General Manager, STCI Finance Ltd (A Bank of India Associate) ‘The Global C-Suite Business and Finance Programme opened new and expanded career opportunities for me in the global development banking industry. Through the program, I was able to grow my leadership skills and learn how to draft and design strategic business plans that affect global stakeholders. I used the new skills I learned to devise a ten-year strategic plan that was approved by eight countries. The course faculty and the CIMA team were very helpful. They provided me with personalised exam guidance, which taught me not only to understand the Strategic Case Study but also apply what I’ve learned at work. I felt empowered to teach my colleagues the new skills I’ve learned, too. The Chartered Global Management Accountant(CGMA) designation that I obtained at the end of the programme has enhanced my career. I recommend the programme for providing the best-in-class financial management education for senior professionals’

Mahesh Chandra Kapoor

Mahesh Chandra Kapoor, FCMA, CGMA Assistant Vice President — Product Delivery and Change Management, HSBC ‘Today, numbers alone won’t cut it for finance professionals. To succeed and remain competitive, we need to understand the wider impact of business strategies to an organisation’s ecosystem — which is exactly what the CIMA Global C-Suite Business and Finance Programme was designed to do. Through the programme, I have acquired new skills that help me learn new perspectives on how global businesses run. Managing a company’s financials has become increasingly complex, and the course taught me how to analyse different regional business situations individually while also keeping the big picture of global strategy in mind. The subjects that I learned through the course were not new. However, the course kept me updated with emerging trends that I needed to know to stay relevant, as well as connect different areas of the business together into devising wider organisational strategies and making better decisions. I really enjoyed the C-suite programme and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn fast, think strategically, influence and inspire their colleagues, and deepen their expertise in the areas they are responsible for’
