The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) has launched the CIMA Diploma in Islamic Finance (CDIF) in Ireland. As the first professional accountancy body to introduce a professional qualification to the Irish market, CIMA is taking the lead at a time when the Irish government is actively working to establish the IFSC as a European hub for the provision of wholesale Islamic finance services.
The CDIF is the first global qualification of its kind to be created by a professional chartered accountancy institute. In conjunction with an advisory group of Shari’ah academics and scholars, CIMA has worked closely with the International Institute of Islamic Finance Inc. to develop a relevant and highly applicable qualification.
