Ernst and Young reports that the most common level of education for a CFO is a degree in finance (29%), followed by a MBA (27%), chartered accountancy qualification (27%), other post-graduate degree (13%), other university degree (13%), business/accountancy related bachelor’s degree (11%), company secretary/cost accountant (5%), and PhD (3%).

growing number of new chief audit executives are coming from outside the internal audit profession. A survey revealed that before becoming a CAEs, 19 percent of the survey respondents held management position in accounting or finance, 9 percent held a management position in a professional service firm, 4 percent held a management position in operations, while 3 percent held a management position in compliance.
