Benefits

The Future CFO Fulltime Youth Leadership Academy (-FYLA) Programme is a ground-breaking, world-class, and value-added professional finance and entrepreneurial leadership development programme for high potential matriculants -aged 21 and below. It is designed to identify young leaders ready to pursue tertiary studies, groom them to become Chartered Accountants -qualified with ACCA, CIMA or SAICA; and directly connect them to career-relevant opportunities with high potential for global business leadership. Our Future CFOs: FYLANs -as the select few who will gain admission and progress each year will be called -will be groomed over 3-6 years before being unleashed to commence their career journey to the top; with our continued guidance, support and mentorship!

3 DISTINCTIVE OUTCOMES SET THIS PROGRAMME APART FROM TRADITIONAL UNIVERSITY OFFERINGS:

1) A COMPETITIVE MINDSET

In leadership, mindset is everything; The FYLA Programme develops your competitive mind-set,  through rigorous international case competions against top universities in Europe, North America and Asia, and/or robust simulations to real-world probem-solving, building your critical-thinking, resilience and emotional intelligence. No other South African University commands the global stature and track record similar to that held by The CharterQuest Institute  -as the global brand owners of Africa’s annual show piece -The CFO Case Study Competition, to arrange and send out its students to challenge for titles at global case competitions!

  1. AN ENTREPRENEURIAL LEADERSHIP MINDSET

It develops your entrepreneurial leadership mind-set -helping you find your real passion, and identify opportunities to effect change in society; we help you  translate, monetise and lead that change into a full-blown global business; assigning you real projects to gain vital accounting, management and leadership experience whilst on campus; you are made to think and act like a change agent –an entrepreneurial leader, and a business professional, rather than the strict accounting professional the traditional university programmes train you to become!

  1. GUARANTEED WORK-EXPERIENCE, JOB AND/OR OWN-BUSINESS VENTURE DURING THE PROGRAMME, OR UPON GRADUATION

The CA (SA) pathway of the programme allows you to still acquire the relevant Bachelor and Honours (CTA) Degree in Accounting -specifically through UNISA, BUT instead of letting you go find your own work experience, we actually negotiate and secure the most suitable and relevant work and leadership development experience (articles) opportunity for you, before preparing you to take your SAICA Board 1 and 2 Exams.  As for the ACCA or CIMA pathways, we also secure the relevant work experience, and rest assured -no other University in South Africa has the requisite ACCA Approved or CIMA Advanced Partner Accreditation status to deliver these full-time! Furthermore, our rigour, exceptional standards, and closer working relationship with industry and top CFOs in the country, means we automatically guarantee the right job to fast track your career to future CFO, or start your own business  –traditional university programmes simply cannot provide this kind of guarantee!
