CONFERENCE THEME:

INTRODUCTION
The Central Bank of Malaysia has taken a bold step in developing human capital in
Islamic finance to meet the growing needs of the global Islamic banking and finance
industry through the establishment of the International Centre for Education in Islamic
Finance (INCEIF). The main objective of INCEIF is to promote educational excellence in
Islamic finance for the domestic and international finance community. INCEIF is
envisaged to achieve this objective by building and strengthening the pool of talented
researchers and educators in Islamic finance and facilitating the coordination, planning
and implementation of human capital initiatives for the Islamic finance industry.
While Islamic finance is growing steadily there is a pressing need to develop the human
capital and knowledge base in Islamic banking and finance. As part of its initiatives and
commitment towards this aspiration, INCEIF will be holding its first Islamic Banking and
Finance Educational Colloquium from the 3rd to the 5th of April 2006. The colloquium

interested entities to present new research and discusses current issues that are vital to
human resource development in the Islamic banking and finance industry as well as other
related topics.
