First study centre for course in Islamic finance
The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) recently announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Preston International College to set up a study support centre that will offer certificate courses in Islamic finance and business accounting.
The CIMA certificate in Islamic finance is the first qualification offered by a professional accounting body to focus on the fast growing sector of Islamic finance. Preston will be the first college in India offering this four module course certified by CIMA.
It’s a course that can be taken up by any student who has passed Class XII. It develops a strong foundation in business and accounting and is a pre-qualification for the CIMA professional qualification in management accounting.
“This certificate is designed to give finance professionals significant market advantages, the professional recognition of a CIMA’s international qualification and demonstrate expertise in the complex, fast growing world of Islamic finance.” says Arati Porwal, chief representative, CIMA India.
“This is the first of its kind partnership to provide world class education in Islamic finance to the Indian student,” said Prof M.H. Zawahirullah, Director Preston International College.
