2015 MIT Sloan CFO Summit: "Innovation & Expertise: The Art of CFO Success"

Deep expertise or forward-thinking innovation? The answer, of course, is both. Today’s Chief Financial Officer requires financial expertise learned in the classroom, along with business innovation skills evolved on the fly.

The CFO Summit, which typically attracts an audience of 600, provides CFOs and senior financial executives the opportunity to learn and discuss high level strategies and practical insights. This year’s speakers include CFOs from IBM, Jawbone, Pandora, TripAdvisor, UnderArmour and many more. The role of the CFO requires deep financial expertise as well as forward-thinking business innovation,” said Jeremy Seidman, Co-Chair of the MIT Sloan CFO Summit. “We’re very excited with our 2015 agenda which is specifically designed to address the integration of knowledge and creativity.”
