29.04.2011 - CIMA Diploma in Islamic finance in Ireland
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.
