“With hardly a solid background in Islamic finance, I wanted to start my involvement in the industry with a firm foundation. And I got that from the CIFP. In addition, the faculty members and support staff at INCEIF were truly supportive throughout my study at INCEIF. My course mates, who came from all over the world, really bonded and some have become like family to me. I was employed by Thomson Reuters during my CIFP articleship that was coordinated by INCEIF. Therefore, getting a job upon qualifying from INCEIF was hassle-free for me!”
“I chose to pursue the MIF at INCEIF because the programme has a combination of three different disciplines which are Shariah principles, conventional finance and quantitative methods. The MIF provides me with a strong foundation in Islamic finance.
“As the chairman of Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ Malaysia (in 2007), I asked the bank’s president to look into the possibilities of opening up an Islamic window at the bank. The response was it would be difficult to do so due to lack of competent human resource. Both the president and I did not have enough knowledge on Islamic finance products. I thought as executives of the bank, we should at least know the core idea of Islamic finance.
“As a non-Muslim I found the world of Islamic finance particularly new and exciting. I believe this rapidly expanding industry will offer promising and challenging work for people of all faiths. I chose the CIFP programme as it provides a strong foundation in both theoretical and practical aspects of Islamic finance. I am convinced this qualification will provide the necessary training to help further my career.”
