Our professional courses aim at educating professionals to perform their functions in Islamic financial institutions more effectively, armed with the knowledge and skills gained through our intensely practical and focused courses. We deliver courses in-house, invite industry experts and institutions to deliver courses, go to financial institutions directly to provide our services, or professional qualifications, including the Advanced Diploma in Islamic Finance and the Advanced Diploma in Islamic Commercial Jurisprudence.
Our Open courses are free to levy paying institutions and are delivered by our in-house experts on Islamic Finance.
In addition, we run special courses that are delivered by leading Islamic Finance experts who are career practitioners or leading thinkers in Islamic Finance. We also partner with institutions that are prominent in Islamic finance to offer their leading edge knowledge to the industry.
We also entertain requests to provide customised and comprehensive human resource development programmes for Islamic financial institutions in the region. We conduct a thorough training needs assessment (TNA) to ascertain the needs of our clients and recommend courses that suit their requirements. We design training programmes that benefit from the collective capacity of BIBF, drawing expertise from our other departments where necessary.
The Centre has competitively serviced the human resource development programmes of some of the largest and most prominent financial institutions in the Middle East, including Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, Islamic Development Bank, National Commercial Bank, Al Baraka Islamic Bank, Kuwait Finance House, Bahrain Islamic Bank, BNP Paribas.
The Centre for Islamic Finance also designs courses that suit the training needs of your organisation. Taking advantage of the vast pool of our solid connections with industry and our own staff resources, we have conducted customised courses for institutions in and outside of Bahrain and the Middle East. So far our Centre has served clients from twenty-plus countries (either in Bahrain or in the countries of the clients) and among them are: Algeria, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Libya, Malaysia, Qatar, Senegal, Saudi Arabia, Syria, UAE, to name a few. Since we are a non-profit entity servicing the needs of the financial industry, our rates for comparable quality and breadth are relatively lower than other private training institutions.
