About the test

The CFO test assesses the ability to assume primary responsibility for managing an organization’s finances through a series of numerical calculation and multiple-choice questions using real-world scenarios and excerpts of financial reports.

The assessment includes solving work-sample tasks, such as:

  • Creating budgets and financial statements based on actual and expected figures.
  • Evaluating the viability, stability, and profitability of a business or project.
  • Analyze how government policies will affect the market economy in which a business operates.

A good chief financial officer, treasurer, or financial director all need a solid understanding of business math, financial statements and reports, financial analysis, and economics to responsibly oversee the accounting and finance activities of an entire organization.
