BIBF recently received a student delegation from the University of Chicago Law School (USA) as part of an educational visit to the Kingdom of Bahrain to gain knowledge and insights that will help prepare them for an increasingly globalised profession.
The delegation – composed of academics from the University of Chicago and law students, visited BIBF to learn about its pioneering programmes in Islamic Finance – specifically Islamic Law. The delegation also visited law firms, courts, regulatory agencies and other government institutions.
BIBF Deputy Director Dr. Ahmed Al Shaikh introduced the delegates to key qualifications and specialist training courses offered by BIBF to meet the growing needs of the industry, and emphasised the Institution’s role as the region’s leading provider of internationally acclaimed Islamic finance programmes.
He also highlighted BIBF’s strategic focus on e-Learning to expand the reach of its specialised programmes across the globe and provide learning and development options for those seeking access to its expertise.
The delegation then took a tour of BIBF’s educational dealing room, and was briefed on technology-enabled experiential learning offered by the facility, providing students with the opportunity to learn about trading in a real market environment.
