UUM Attains Prestigious GIFA Award For The Third Time

UUM ONLINE: 6 September - Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) once again attained an international recognition when it was selected as the winner of one of the most prestigious awards from the Global Islamic Finance Awards (GIFA) 2017. 

UUM was conferred the "Best Islamic Finance Education Provider" award at the seventh edition of GIFA, held at the Kazakhstan capital city of Astana. The award honours the commitment of Islamic financial education providers to nurturing skilled Islamic finance professionals so as to sustain the growth of the industry.

The two previous recognitions attained by UUM were in the categories ‘GIFA Market Leadership (For Education in Islamic Banking & Finance),’ in 2016, in Jakarta, Indonesia, and 'Best Islamic Finance Qualification,' for the Bachelor of Islamic Finance and Banking (BIFB) programme, in 2013, in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.

The Vice-Chancellor of UUM, Prof. Dato' Seri Dr. Mohamed Mustafa Ishak, was present to accept the award in a ceremony attended by the President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev.
