The Global University of Islamic Finance (INCEIF) and management consultancy group, Hay Group, have signed a
memorandum of agreement (MOA) to develop behavioural leadership competencies blueprint for the global Islamic finance industry.
In a statement today, INCEIF said the opportunity will enable it to take the lead as a catalyst in developing the required competencies for Islamic finance professionals, specifically the role that syariah principles played in ensuring ethical leadership qualities.
It said for the Hay Group, the MOA was a prospect to conduct ground-breaking research in leadership competencies required for the Islamic finance industry with a globally-renowned academic institution.
“Being globally-recognised human capital consulting firm, this research will further strengthen the understanding of what makes a good Islamic finance professional, specifically from a behavioural perspective,” it said.
INCEIF president/chief executive officer, Daud Vicary Abdullah, and Hay Group regional managing director for Asia, Middle East, Africa, Central Eastern Europe, Latin America and Mexico, Datuk Tharuma Rajah, signed the MOA.– Bernama
