What is The CFO Junior?

The CFO JUNIOR first started in 2017 as a South African National High School Case Study Competition; it has now developed into a Continental Challenge, open to High Schools across Africa. As a cadet version of the main competition, it challenges teenage High School learners to prove their leadership potential: by competing to solve a set of ‘common sense’ real-life business management problems -drawing from their knowledge of Accounting, Business Studies, Economics and Mathematics in their school curriculum.

The objective is to embed early in their development, the attributes of logical and critical thinking as well as the research, public speaking, team collaboration, entrepreneurial, competitive and problem-solving skills that are vital to their success at higher education and subsequent career journey.

It is the premier and much-anticipated annual continental event that brings together students, entry-level professionals, high schools, universities, professional bodies, country representatives, education policy makers and big business for one purpose: to inspire the next generation of CFOs & Global Business Leaders

The competition is endorsed by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). 

The 2018 continental semi finals will be held at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) on October 2nd, 2018 and the global grand finale on October 3rd as part of 
Finance Indaba Africa Expo (Sandton Convention Center):
