Delivered jointly by the internationally recognised ICMA Centre at Henley Business School in Malaysia and the global university in Islamic finance, INCEIF, the course offers a specialist Master’s programme, leading to professional qualification credits and a strong and detailed foundation in both Western and Islamic banking.
