Our Learning Programs

Triple-IBF Suite of Qualifications for the Development & Humanitarian Professional

This is the flagship initiative of IIIBF that aims to impart comprehensive knowledge and skills needed to transform you into a complete Development & Humanitarian Finance Professional. As policy makers strive to address the massive financial needs of countries seeking to meet the Sustainable Development Goals, and as international humanitarian agencies struggle to meet a massive resource shortfall, this program aims to address the human resource development and capacity building challenges of the sector, especially in the context of Islamic societies with their unique institutions of philanthropy and tools of Shariah-compliant finance.

This intermediate level course aims to develop you as a professional, well-versed in Shariah rules pertaining to mobilization of zakat and its allocation as an “alternative” source of financing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and as a tool to meet the ever-increasing humanitarian funding gap.

This intermediate level course aims to equip you with the Shariah-legal knowledge as well as modern tools for a leadership role in the transformation of the Islamic endowments or awqaf sector and effectively contribute to the provision of public goods, e.g. education, healthcare, energy, water & sanitation and the like.

This intermediate level course aims to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the building blocks of an Islamic microfinance program – models, products and services based on Shariah-compliant modes- with a view to creating livelihood opportunities and alleviating poverty levels.
