In its 18th year of operation, INCEIF University remains the only university in the world to focus solely on postgraduate studies in Islamic finance after being set up by the Central Bank of Malaysia – Bank Negara Malaysia in 2005 with the objective to meet the global demand for high quality human capital in Islamic Finance.

Apart from its academic programmes, which are PhD in Islamic Finance, Industrial PhD, MBA (Sustainable Business), Masters of Islamic Finance Practice, Executive Masters in Islamic Finance, MSc in Islamic Finance and Professional Certificate in Islamic Finance, INCEIF University also offers customised executive training programmes, short courses and industry-focused applied research in line with its vision to be the knowledge and thought leader in Islamic finance.

The INCEIF University syllabus is structured with inputs from industry players to bridge the gap between academic knowledge and industry experience. INCEIF University faculty members, who are globally respected among the Islamic finance academia and industry, have a combined wealth of experience and diversity. The faculty, coupled with continuous support from the industry, provides INCEIF University students with strong mentoring relationships and opportunities for professional development.

INCEIF University carries Malaysia’s aspiration to share our Islamic finance experience and contribute to the development of talent and technical skills globally. Education is a key component of any Islamic finance ecosystem and having the right programme to produce qualified human capital for the Islamic finance industry is a prerequisite, particularly for frontier markets.
