Financial Administrator Development Program

About the Program

Since 2012, the FADP has provided Michigan State University financial administrators a comprehensive program to sharpen skills and responsibilities in a manner that benefits the university, the unit, and the individual. Best practices in using financial information from MSU’s enterprise business systems (EBS) will serve as a focal point for much of the program. In addition, executives (including several Vice Presidents) and other leaders from across MSU will present from both a financial perspective and as a means to provide participants with a broad introduction to the university as a whole. Upon completion, participants will have technical, organizational and cultural tools, and knowledge of the resources and other tools for building and continually improving the skills required to succeed. FADP is open to APA/S 10+, Executive Management, and Faculty and Academic staff.
