Ethica and Zawya announce partnership
Dubai, September 20, 2010
Ethica Institute of Islamic Finance has partnered with Zawya, a leading provider of business and investment intelligence in the Middle East, to jointly deliver online Islamic banking courses and certification.
Ethica Institute's certification is chosen by more professionals and students than any other Islamic finance certificate in the world, a statement said.
'This historic partnership addresses the greatest need in the industry: practical training developed by scholars and bankers and delivered online around the globe; rather than theoretical training taught by academics and delivered inside a classroom,' said Ethica's managing director Atif Khan.
'This landmark partnership with Ethica marks Zawya's ambition to provide quality training and certification in Islamic finance. It will enable us to provide a one-stop platform for Sukuk news, reports, intelligence, connectivity and education developed by scholars and bankers,' added Zawya's acting chief executive officer Gunnar Skoog.
In the coming months the two companies intend to jointly launch a specialised Islamic finance certification focusing on sukuk.-TradeArabia News Service
