Financial controllership


Financial controllers are often considered to be part of the leadership in businesses. They play an utmost important role in day-to-day financial operations within an organization. The qualifications and level of experience required for financial controllers may vary according to the size or type of businesses.  While there may not be an industry-wide standard set of requirements for financial controllers, some common competencies are necessary to become a successful one.


The HKICPA’s Financial Controllership Programme

Since the introduction of the Institute’s Financial Controllership Programme (FCP), it has provided individuals a training platform to structurally develop the competencies needed to become financial controllers.  FCP is designed to help participants to:

  1. gain the core technical knowledge and skills expected of a financial controller, and 
  2. gain insights into the work involved as a financial controller and how to add value to the business.

The latest enhanced programme continues to prepare individuals with the necessary competencies in a structural manner, while providing a versatile combination of face-to-face workshop training with a mixture of self-paced online learning and social activities to create greater value and a better overall learning experience.


Learning outcomes
FCP unlocks a new realm of topics for aspiring financial controllers to explore.  The programme guides participants to master the core technical knowledge, and prepares you in the formulation of your self-development plan in your career.  FCP (Level 1) walks you through the core competencies required.  FCP (Level 2) keeps FCs up-to-date on the spectrum of hot topics. By taking part in the FCP journey, participants will find themselves more confident when engaging in conversations with counterparts from different functions, able to make informed and insightful comments on arising issues, and having gained a wider perspective to handle difficult situations.  


Teaching professionals

Facilitators are industry experts and experienced professional accountants in business with expertise in different subject areas within the FCP.


Target participants

Aspiring professionals with at least 3 years of post CPA qualifications, e.g. professional accountants in public practice or accountants in business.



Participants will be awarded a certificate of attendance upon the successful completion of the 56-hour programme (each level), achieving at least 80% of attendance.



FCP Level 2 (April 2024 - October 2024) is currently running and is closed for enrolment. Download the flyer if you are interested to learn more details about the programme.
