What Islamic Finance qualifications does CIMA offer?

CIMA offer a variety of qualifications to meet the requirements of most students.
The key qualifications are:

  • The CIMA Certificates in Islamic Finance:
  • Certificate in Islamic commercial law
  • Certificate in banking and takaful
  • Certificate in Islamic capital markets and Instruments
  • Certificate in accounting for Islamic financial Institutions
  • The CIMA Diploma in Islamic Finance (CDIF):

The CDIF comprises four modules which can be studied separately as the individual certificates above and which, if completed successfully, will result in the award of a “certificate” in that module e.g. Certificate in Islamic Commercial Law.

All of the above qualifications are offered on an online learning resource, which you can purchase via the CGMA store.

Which qualification is right for me?

The modular approach allows you to choose which level of qualification is best suited to your needs.

  • If you need specialist knowledge in just one area of Islamic Finance, then we suggest you enrol onto one of the four individual certificate modules. Once you complete this module you can continue your learning and complete other certificates through to the Diploma.
  • If you require a more thorough understanding of Islamic Finance and to feel comfortable dealing with Islamic products and institutions then we suggest you complete the Diploma in Islamic Finance.
