Deloitte, FAA collaborate on Islamic finance training

The initiative aims to provide quality assurance and accreditation in Islamic finance executive education by having Deloitte IFKC professional training programs benchmarked against best practices and adhere to the highest standards of quality through reviews by international experts around the world.

The collaboration with the FAA complements Deloitte’s existing capacity programs with industry stakeholders. The program strives to enhance opportunities for practitioners in the Middle East and elsewhere to benefit from an international quality assurance framework developed for the financial service industry.

“Our capacity program strategy aims to work diligently and closely with the Islamic finance industry and help diffuse high standards of good practices in all aspects. This program has particular emphasis on quality of professional training and executive education,” said Joe El Fadl, Financial Services Industry leader, Deloitte Middle East.

“In today’s highly dynamic and evolving financial system, establishing business relations to strengthen the financial institutions cannot be overemphasized. FAA enters this significant partnership to reach this goal which supports the agenda in bringing the best practices to the industry at the same time promoting quality learning within the Financial Services Industry,” said Dr. Amat Taap Manshor, Chief Executive Officer of the FAA.

The IFKC and FAA cooperative initiative recognizes the importance of upholding quality learning in Islamic financial service industry.

Three main objectives are identified in this partnership:

1. To standardize Quality Assurance and Accreditation ‘QAA’ framework in the Islamic financial service industry.

2. To foster more widespread understanding about QAA in training and executive education, incorporating core local practices, leveraging on our joint expertise and insights.

3. To increase awareness about the opportunities to benefit from participation in capacity building and talent development.
