While accreditation provides an assurance of quality and industry recognition, the real however benefit lies in the accreditation process. At the end of the day, the attainment of the programme objective and learning experience of the participants is as the say “the proof of the pudding”. Apart from the design, development and delivery of programmes, the review and feedback process has also encouraged continuous improvement in the delivery and content of our accredited programmes thus enabling a more effective transfer of skills and knowledge.
Mr. Jamal Ahmad Al Jassmi

The Emirates Institute of Banking and Financial Studies (EIBFS) is a leading provider of a wide range of quality banking and finance courses in the United Arab Emirates. We are delighted to have received full accreditation of our Islamic Banking Diploma program from the prestigious Finance Accreditation Agency (FAA) of Malaysia. FAA accreditation will enhance the quality assurance of programs offered by EIBFS. Our Islamic Banking Diploma is already accredited by the Commission for Academic Accreditation of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research in the UAE and further accreditation by the FAA recognizes that the design, development and delivery of our Islamic Banking Diploma program complies with international academic standards. Our Islamic Banking Diploma was started in 2003 and was the first in the region. Student numbers are rising yearly due to the fast growing Islamic banking sector and the qualification is highly respected by employers throughout the region. FAA accreditation will add to the marketability of this Diploma’.

We welcome the FAA accreditation process which was rigorous. INCEIF has benefitted from FAA’s input in the design methodology for one of our executive programmes which is the Certificate in Islamic Finance (CIF). The FAA accreditation gives added value to our CIF programme as it differentiates the programme from other similar programmes out in the market. The feedback from our previous batch of participants has been encouraging in terms of the modules covered, the wide range of course materials and the delivery method of the CIF.
