The IFT Academy

Tagged under -

The IFT is delighted to announce that after two successful intakes, we will be holding a third cycle of The IFT Academy. The next 18 month modular programme will commence from September 2016, running through to February 2018.

The IFT Academy has been extremely successful and well received since it began in 2013. We have welcomed Members, Candidates and Corporate Partners from all industries to further their knowledge and expertise in restructuring, turnaround and transformation.


“In terms of value I feel the programme is of MBA level and quality, and that the teaching and contribution of IFT members make it a good training investment” – Director in banking.

“I have found the content and format just right, and can be applied widely” – IFT Candidate, Independent Executive.

“The leadership and guidance was first class” – Senior Director, FTI.


The variety of attendees on the Academy is what gives this programme its edge. Attendees come from legal, banking, private equity, accounting and independent executive backgrounds. Each delegate brings a different approach and view to the learning objectives and cases discussed, which increases the group’s learning opportunities, encouraging different ways of thinking.

Many of The Academy Alumni have gone forward to work with one another. Utilising each other’s contacts and knowledge, delegates continuing to develop and incorporate what they have learnt from the Academy and to enhance how they work in their day to day role, whether as an independent executive or an advisor.

The IFT Academy consists of the following six modules:

Business Insight and Turnaround

Customers, Innovation and Brands

Investing and Implementation

Financial and Human Capital

Cash Management and Financial Restructuring

• Public and Third Sector

Many delegate names have already been confirmed for the next Academy intake, 2016/2017. Should you wish to attend or are keen to hear more, please contact Kate Norris at

For each module we invite Members to present and share their advanced knowledge of particular industries, sectors and skills with the Academy delegates. Should this be something you are interested in doing please do get in touch.
