Skill shortage obstructs growth of Islamic finance
According to Bank Negara Malaysia’s Shariah Advisory Council, there is a skill shortage in the Islamic finance Industry. In order to prevent it from hindering the growth of the Islamic Finance, Southeast Asian universities are adding Islamic finance courses. The new programmes will start at universitas Muhammadiyah in Malang, Indonesia and Kuala Lumpur-based International Centre for Education in Islamic Finance (INCEIF). The new courses shall bridge the gap between what was formerly taught and what is requred by employers.
