"UBS AG, the Swiss-based bank which is slashing staff to offset losses, sees growth opportunities in Islamic Finance and plans to expand in this market, its new head of Islamic finance, Armen Papazian said recently." - Reuters

Almost everyday, we hear or see some news item such as the above related to the success and growth of Islamic Finance industry through mass media.

Interestingly, one could see an expansion of Islamic Financial institutions in the western countries as well. Still, an acute shortage of qualified manpower seems to be hampering the progress of this industry to a greater extent.

First Global Knowledge Centre (FGKC), the pioneer in the country in the field of Islamic Banking & Finance education has always endeavoured to fill this vacuum by conducting recognized courses, conferences and seminars for the past three years. It has now tied up with Al Huda Centre for Islamic Banking & Economics, Pakistan (Al Huda CIBE) to offer internationally recognized distance learning programmes in Sri Lanka.

Al Huda-CIBE is a well established name in financial industry, working for Education, Training, Promotion and Awareness of Islamic Banking & Finance in Pakistan as well as abroad. Offering distance learning programmes is an effort of Al Huda to promote Islamic Banking & Finance at mass level. Al Huda is jointly working with 12 international institutions as a partner for the development of this emerging industry worldwide.

Even in Sri Lanka the numbers are significant of those who are keen on getting themselves acquainted with the technical and theoretical knowledge of this industry but are unable to follow a regular study programme due to certain constraints. Time is one such impediment in the journey of gaining knowledge to the busy person and for some others distance and transport issues also matter.
Distance learning programmes are ideal for this category of knowledge seekers, and the internationally recognized Al Huda programmes will help them in achieving their goals. The following are available on distance study mode:

Post Graduate Diploma in Islamic Banking & Finance,
Certified Takaful Professional,
Certified Islamic Funds Manager,
Certified Sukuk Professional, and
Certified Islamic Microfinance Manager

Another salient feature is the special introductory fee given for students from Sri Lanka.
A handsome discount is offered for all these programmes which are indeed very much affordable.
