The Chartered Institute of Management Accounting (CIMA) has been nominated for the ‘Best Islamic Finance Provider 2013’ in the Global Islamic Finance Awards.
The GIFA will take place as part of the fifth World Islamic Retail Banking Conference, which began today (November 26) in Dubai.
After the introduction of the first professional Islamic finance course in 2008, a growing majority of students in the Gulf are opting for CIMA, said a statement.
