Talent support for Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ(Malaysia) Berhad


As  the  demand  for  qualified and competent Islamic finance professionals grows  in  tandem with industry growth, INCEIF continues its role to provide human capital for the global industry.

Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ (Malaysia) Berhad (BTMUM) is one of the many industry  players  that  has  worked  closely with INCEIF in beefing up its Islamic finance talent.

BTMUM  is  a key subsidiary of its parent bank The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd and Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group  (MUFG), and provides Islamic finance based solutions to customers. This  is  an important mandate as MUFG is the largest Japanese bank in term of  its  global  overseas  network; spanning more than 40 countries and 500 offices worldwide.

To  support  its  budding and accelerating Islamic finance operation, BTMUM continuously looks out to develop its human capital. According to the bank, it  has  benefited  from  INCEIF’s  articleship  programme where  the CIFP (Chartered  Islamic Finance Professional) final semester students undergo a six-month articleship at various Islamic finance organisations.

For its Islamic banking department, BTMUM has employed both experienced and young  talents;  in which almost half of the staff are either INCEIF alumni or  current  students.  This  competent  team has contributed towards BTMUM winning global awards for the last two consecutive years.

For  the  bank,  the  positive  synergy,  between  an  industry  player and academia, is demonstrated through BTMUM’s support for INCEIF; be it through endowment, donations, industry talks or student articleships. In  maintaining goodwill between the two organisations, BTMUM will continue to support INCEIF in its future endeavours.
