President & Chief Executive Officer's Message
Welcome to the world of INCEIF.
This year will be more exciting than ever at INCEIF. Our contribution to the Islamic finance industry will be more comprehensive thanks to an expanded business model that allows us to provide a range of services direct to Islamic Financial Institutions.
The ranks of our faculty have been bolstered and restructured to provide three key industry services. These services are spearheaded by the Consulting and Executive Programme (CEP) that targets C-level executives and senior management of IFIs. Another important industry service is the research capability of the university. Research is divided across three sectors, broad-based Islamic finance, niche areas and cluster groups. The third industry service is championed by INCEIF’s Knowledge Management Centre. This division provides access, reports and search based study into the university’s library, which is one of the most extensive Islamic finance libraries in the region.
The winds of change are also sweeping through one of our academic programmes. Our flagship Chartered Islamic Finance Professional programme has undergone major review, with all course materials being updated before the year ends. This year we expect to see a record number of CIFP students enrol. The university’s two other academic programmes, Masters in Islamic Finance and PhD in Islamic Finance, are also expecting a record numbers of students in 2012.
Our academic programmes and industry services now provide a comprehensive suite of products for both individuals and financial institutions. So whatever your needs, we look forward to providing or designing a learning programme that will fulfil your goals.
