Taking Islamic finance education to the masses

Once the reserve of expensive training events, Islamic finance education is now about to become accessible to the common man.

Ethica has announced that it is making the study notes for its award-winning Certified Islamic Finance Executive (CIFE) programme freely available to the public as an e-book.

The CIFE Study Notes e-book covers major Islamic finance topics including Sukuk, Risk Management, Liquidity Management, Takaful, Musharakah, Mudarabah, Murabaha, Ijarah, Salam, and Istisna. The end of the e-book includes an expansive glossary covering commonly used industry terminology.

Ethica’s spokesperson said: “The CIFE Study Notes are designed as an accompaniment to the online training modules and provide Ethica students with a handy reference manual, but anyone can benefit from the examples and concepts explained in the e-book.” The CIFE Study Notes can be downloaded here.

Islamic finance currently suffers an acute shortage of trained and certified professionals. And despite the global financial crisis, Islamic finance continues to spread across the globe. The Dubai-based institute’s clients include large banks like Mashreq Bank which trains 1,000 employees using Ethica, universities like La Trobe, and Dow Jones affiliate Zawya, which offers Ethica to its 750,000 users.
