Critical and compelling insights
Join us for an invitation-only CFO Forum to be held at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business' Gleacher Center. As a CFO and a graduate of Chicago Booth, you are part of an exclusive community that gathers with each other and Chicago Booth faculty to debate and provide context to the most pressing issues facing executives.
What attendees are saying
The CFO Forum is excellent. Every year the Advisory Committee identifies those issues that draw top Booth CFOs across industries and countries into rigorous and transformational conversations.
The Booth CFO Forum provided a great opportunity for me to learn from and interact with peers and leading faculty on topics of interest.
Meet peers as well as Chicago Booth faculty and staff - must be on your calendar every year.
