Finance and accountancy training for UN employees: CIPFA's International Public Financial Management programme
CIPFA and the UN have worked together since 2013. As part of its commitment to professionalising its finance function and improving its financial management performance, the UN has to date nominated over 1,600 staff from across 18 agencies to take part in our IPFM programme.
The programme – the only specialist qualification in the world focused on public service finance – aims to update the development needs, skills, competency, education and experience of UN finance staff. It creates a class standard in financial skills development and prepares individuals for taking on the roles of future finance managers and leaders.
As a CIPFA programme, it also provides participants who complete the requirements of the programme with a comprehensive and internationally recognised certification in the technical competencies needed for different roles, duties and degrees of seniority at the UN.
