Visit by Babson & UNIRAZAK

INCEIF today played host to 20 Business undergraduate students from Babson College in Massachusetts, USA and 30 BBA in Islamic Banking & Finance students from Universiti Tun Abdul Razak.


Murata Professor of Business Ethics Prof Dr. James Hoopes said the Babson College students, comprising mostly Americans, were in Malaysia for a week for a study tour on `Social Responsibility in Malaysia’. The tour took them to publishing house Karangkraf in Shah Alam to learn about its entrepreneurship programme and Petronas in Kuala Lumpur for the oil company’s CSR efforts.

“We decided to include INCEIF in this study tour as the students wanted to find out more about Islamic Finance, such as what can this financial system do to inculcate social responsibility among its practitioners,” Prof Hoopes added.


UNIRAZAK is already a collaborative partner of INCEIF where its second year BBA in Islamic Banking & Finance students are taking 6 of the required 14 modules of INCEIF’s Chartered Islamic Finance Professional (CIFP) programme. Upon completion of the BBA, these students have the option to complete the remaining 8 CIFP modules and earn a CIFP qualification which is equivalent to a Masters.


INCEIF Professor of Islamic Economics and Banking Prof Dr Saiful Azhar Rosly delivered a presentation on `Usury riba and Islamic Finance: Special Reference to Entrepreneurship’. He also took questions from the students.


Following Prof Saiful’s presentation, the visiting students joined INCEIF students for a session of INCEIF’s Luncheon Talk series with guest speaker Affin Islamic Bank Bhd CEO Mr Kamarul Ariffin Mohd Jamil. He gave a presentation `Musyarakah Project Financing : An Experience of Affin Islamic Bank’.
