INCEIF was set up by Bank Negara Malaysia in 2005 and has been mandated to develop and nurture talent and experts in the Islamic financial services industry. As a university, INCEIF offers postgraduate studies in Islamic finance.
INCEIF aims to be the knowledge leader in Islamic finance through providing excellent teaching, research and thought leadership. In achieving this vision, it is important for INCEIF to bridge both academia and industry. This is translated into its academic syllabus which is structured based on the inputs from industry players as well as having faculty members who are globally respected in both Islamic finance academia and Islamic finance industry. The faculty, coupled with continuous support from the regulators and key industry players, provides INCEIF students with strong mentoring relationships and opportunities for professional development.
Today, there are 1,561 INCEIF alumni from over 70 countries around the world. Some are already making meaningful contributions to the advancement of Islamic finance at all levels be it product development, policy framework and implementation; regulation and enforcement; and innovation.

Friends of INCEIF who contribute to the IEF have the opportunity to ensure that the institution and the knowledge it seeks to share will exist in perpetuity. Yet, more than anything else, behind each endowment gift is perhaps a personal motivation – to repay a debt of gratitude for a donor’s own opportunity at getting a good education, to honor a cause that is close to one’s values and/or to simply make a positive impact on society in remembrance of a loved one.
