The vision of The International Centre for Education in Islamic Finance (INCEIF) is to be recognised as leading University in Islamic Finance.
Established in March 2006, The Chartered Islamic Finance Professional (CIFP) delivers a holistic and comprehensive syllabus specifically driven by the industry. It combines both practical and theoretical aspects of Islamic finance, resulting in a holistic learning experience of exceptional quality.
One of the contributing factors to the absence of awareness in Islamic finance and banking is the lack of understanding in the area. The CIFP programme provides a unique learning experience in three parts, blending theory and practice to enhance your knowledge and understanding of Islamic finance and banking. With specialisations in either banking or takaful, the CIFP offers a professional niche for yourself, as you further enhance your expertise in the area.

Elevate and advance Islamic financial knowledge to develop the Islamic finance industry.

“Today’s level of return and the attendant risk correlation across asset classes in conventional finance is being challenged by easy money and abundant global liquidity. Modern Islamic finance has many aspects that can offer a creative alternative to deal with this phenomenon. The general Shariah objectives that deal with resources allocation for the benefit of the community is also very much in sync with the repeated G-7 call for rich nations to do more to help their poor counterparts. I thank INCEIF for sharing the knowledge of Islamic finance and banking with me. ” Ooi Lay Leng, Singapore
« There is great demand for Islamic finance practitioners the world over. Currently, there is a great deal of misunderstanding about Islamic banking and finance, therefore it is even more urgent for Muslims to convey to the world what Islamic finance really is, its philosophical background, its mission and objectives. Now, the more I read, the more I understand the need for an alternative economic system in general, and alternative financial instruments in particular, which are based on moral principles rather than profit maximisation. » Ildous Rafikov, Russia
