Gain a Competitive Edge Through Strategic Finance
Taking place on the campus of the prestigious Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, the NACS Financial Leadership Program is an intense and exclusive five-day program designed for high-potential executives who have been challenged by their companies to expand their financial insights and, in turn, provide greater value to their organizations.

An Exceptional Value For Our Industry's Best
Because NACS is committed to providing a learning environment that combines the exclusivity of an Ivy League education, the intimacy of a small class environment and direct access to Wharton professors, attendance at the NACS Financial Leadership Program is limited to 40 participants.

This program is specifically designed for the convenience and fuel retailing industry. Case studies embedded in the NACS Financial Leadership Program at Wharton are customized using information from the NACS State of the Industry Report, so you'll gain new skills through exercises that are relevant and applicable to your organization.

This intensive, competitive five-day program is priced at $3,995, less than half the cost of a typical Wharton open enrollment course.

Who Should Attend
Geared towards finance executives who are looking to take their department to the next level of sophistication and strategy by building a skill set that will go beyond the classroom and positively affect an organization’s bottom line, the NACS Financial Leadership Program is designed for these target audiences:

  • CEOs of small chains (25-50 stores)
  • Controllers in medium-sized chains (51-150 stores)
  • Rising accounting and finance executives in larger chains (151+ stores)

A tuition endowment from Cash Depot allows participants to benefit from this industry-specific executive financial program at an affordable price. The $3,995 tuition includes instruction, course materials, lodging and scheduled meals. Registration for this event is exclusive to NACS Retail Members.

 What Participants are saying


​Great class. One of the best training programs I have attended.

Overall, the program was a home run. Wharton is king of executive education for a reason and their talents in this area showed.

Fantastic opportunity for me! I thought the program was exceptionally well put together, especially for it being the first year.

This program was amazing and I most certainly will recommend others in our company to participate next year!

Overall, I loved this entire program and I am thankful for Wharton's willingness to work with NACS in putting this together. Our company will continue to support this program in the future.
