What makes an Islamic finance qualification special? And what makes it special enough for the industry’s leaders to award it their most coveted prize? If Ethica’s win this weekend at the Global Islamic Finance Awards (GIFA) is anything to go by, then the most critical element for bankers and students is that the qualification have real-world application.
Sameer Hasan, Business Director at Ethica, received the award and said, “People are frustrated with certificates they can’t use: the training is mostly theoretical and the certificates do little to attract recruiters. Ethica’s CIFE graduates get hired in a tough job market because we try to go beyond theory while also helping students land jobs.” (Press Release)
