Officially AAOIFI Recognized

AAOIFI officially recognizes Ethica’s award-winning Certified Islamic Finance Executive (CIFE) and Advanced CIFE (ACIFE) programs for continuing professional development (CPD) purposes. Ethica grants AAOIFI Fellows exclusive discounts. Ethica is also an Official AAOIFI Candidate Registration Center for the Certified Islamic Professional Accountant (CIPA) and Certified Shari'ah Advisor and Auditor (CSAA) programs, which will be promoted to Ethica’s graduates and institutional clients. AAOIFI grants Ethica’s institutional and individual clients exclusive discounts and exemptions through this arrangement. AAOIFI and Ethica will now also jointly issue co-branded certificates in face-to-face and online training events.

Mr. Omar Mustafa Ansari, Secretary General, AAOIFI, said, “The role Ethica has played in promoting the cause of standardization of best practices in Islamic finance, especially in the fields of Shari'ah and accounting, that too for the last two decades, is indeed praiseworthy. They have always put AAOIFI standards at the heart of all their certification and training programs for which we are grateful. We believe that our partnership with Ethica is natural and necessary as their certifications serve Islamic finance enthusiasts with a genuine stepping stone towards specialization through our own CIPA and CSAA programs.”

Ethica’s CIFE and ACIFE certificates comply with the latest Shariah Standards of the Accounting and Auditing Organization for Islamic Financial Institutions (AAOIFI), the world’s leading Islamic finance standard, followed by over 90% of the world’s Islamic finance jurisdictions.
