Ethica's CIFE™: The Most Rigorous Accreditation Process In Islamic Finance

Rigorously tested and approved by leading Islamic finance bankers and scholars, Ethica's CIFE™ goes through 7 exhaustive levels of checking:

  • Final scholar review and accreditation conducted at completion stage.*
  • Published for final review by Ethica Institute's Editorial Team.
  • Raw content edited by Ethica Institute's Editorial Team.
  • Training content created by a leading scholar or banker deeply familiar with the latest AAOIFI Shariah Standards.
  • Edited content finalized by Ethica Institute's Shariah Team.
  • Final review conducted by Ethica Institute's Shariah Team.
  • Published for user testing.

* Like banks, we rely on bankers and scholars, not academics and institutes, for high-level Islamic finance accreditation.
