What is The CFO Junior?
The CFO Junior is a National High School Case Study Competition, a cadet version of the globally-acclaimed ‘CFO Case Study Competition’ for universities around the world. Organised along-side this main global competition, it challenges teenage students in South African High Schools with career aspirations in finance and business 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 and Economics in the High 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.
