Key capabilities that distinguish Ethica from its competitors:

Ethica is the most trusted Islamic finance program: training and certifying professionals from over 160 financial institutions in 64 countries

Ethica is the most trusted name in Islamic finance certification, successfully rolling out bank-wide Islamic finance e-learning. We have done so across large banks (e.g. Mashreqbank's bank-wide e-learning and certification), large academics (e.g. La Trobe University's accredited semester course in Australia), and global corporates.

Ethica offers leading market recognition: winner of "Best Islamic Finance Qualification"

Ethica recently won the award for "Best Islamic Finance Qualification" from Global Islamic Finance Awards in the UK; "Best Research and Education Company" presented by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai at the Global Islamic Economy Summit; "Education Leadership Award" at the Asian Leadership Awards; and 4 years running, Ethica received the award nomination for "Best Islamic Finance Training Institution" from Islamic Business and Finance magazine in Dubai. We were also recently shortlisted as finalists for "Business Innovation of the Year," "Online Business of the Year," and "Customer Focus of the Year" categories by the Gulf Capital SMEInfo Awards in Dubai.

Ethica guarantees standardization: 100% AAOIFI-compliant and scholar-accredited

Ethica offers the highest form of accreditation possible in Islamic finance: fatwas from leading scholars stating that we comply with AAOIFI, the most widely accepted standard in Islamic finance. Leading Shariah scholars and a team of practitioners certify Ethica certificates for 100% AAOIFI-compliance - not 80% or 90%, which leads to confusion.

Ethica offers an extensive selection of advanced training

Ethica offers a huge inventory of face-to-face and e-learning programs. This strength reflects our ability to leverage from an entire team of experts who handle everything from the most fundamental training all the way up to the most advanced. We have delivered 2 day sales training for CROs all the way up to rigorous 5 day intensives at the bank. Ethica's trainers are among the best in the industry and our team is made up of specialists only: scholars, legal experts, Islamic bankers and practitioners with over 15+ years of experience. They work on product innovation for a living and continue to advise central banks, governments and regulatory bodies. Here is a partial list of some of the programs delivered by Ethica in the past:
