Course Overview

The Advanced Financial Management (AFM) course focusses on managing the finances of a business, and is a continuation of the FM course. 

This is an advanced level exam which builds upon the knowledge and skills examined in Financial Management. You will be required to demonstrate your ability to:

  • Read and digest comprehensive and detailed questions quickly
  • Apply relevant knowledge and skills
  • Exercise the professional judgement expected of a senior financial professional
  • Make recommendations or financial management decisions that are likely to affect the entire business organisation

Like a senior financial professional at work, you will be expected to read a business brief and decide on a relevant methodical approach to meeting the brief’s objectives, making notes where necessary.

Senior managers work under tight deadlines, and hence prioritising and managing your time is crucial to performing well under examination conditions.

AFM is one of the four optional courses in the Strategic Professional level. You have to pick two of the four optional papers.
