Stay on Top of Your Game: APQC’s Professional Development Resources (General Accounting and More)

Up Your Financial Management Game

Fall means lots of things to different people: Football season, changing leaves and cooler weather (we can only dream of this in Houston), and back to school! If you are a parent, chances are that your school-age children have already returned to school this Fall in the frenzy of excitement that is growing up academically. But it is not only kids and teens that can learn: Even though working life is often extraordinarily hectic, and particularly as a finance professional, we can always strive to continue to be lifelong learners as adults. 

APQC would like to help. Part of our mission as a non-profit organization is to find and disseminate best practices information, and also to connect individuals with the tools and information that they need to improve, both corporately and individually. To that end, when we delve in to a research topic, we strive to put together “fundamentals” collections on our Knowledge Library on each topic, which contain curated files to help working finance professionals up their game and develop new competencies. Check out some of our curated Fundamentals resources–free to the public as part of our mission– across the spectrum of the finance function below:

Let’s start this new academic year fresh and with enthusiasm for lifelong learning. We hope you enjoy these resources, but as always, if you have any feedback on these or other resources we can produce to fulfill our mission and help finance professionals with personal and professional development in improving their organizations, please reach out and let us know.
