The Small Countries Financial Management Programme
brings together officials from finance ministries, central banks,
and regulatory bodies in small developing countries for a two-week
executive education programme designed to stimulate fresh
approaches to the challenges they and their countries
The intensive learning experience in the Isle of Man and Oxford
gives participants access to some of the best practitioners and
professors in the world from Oxford and other leading universities,
and allows them to share their own insights with counterparts from
other small countries.
Along with acquiring enhanced knowledge and new ways of
approaching seemingly intractable problems, the 24
participants develop a sense of shared purpose and community of
interest. A strong focus on financial integrity, prudent
regulation, and economic management is complemented by sessions to
improve leadership skills and the capacity to negotiate
Alumni of the 2009 through 2016 programmes are now acting
as catalysts for change within their governments, so that the
benefits are stretching beyond those accruing to the individual
officials who attended the programme. They are applying the lessons
they learned on the programme as they cope with global financial
uncertainty, while also seeking to cooperate with international
organisations and standard-setting bodies.
