Islamic Finance Leadership Programme

Introduction

Cambridge Islamic Finance Leadership Programme (Cambridge-IFLP) enjoys the reputation of being the first and the only global leadership programme specifically structured for middle and upper-middle management personnel of Islamic financial institutions. Designed and structured by Cambridge IFA, the programme is delivered by some of the most influential leaders in Islamic banking and finance.

Held every summer at Clare College, University of Cambridge , UK; Cambridge-IFLP attracts delegates from world over including Europe, Middle East, Africa, Central Asia and Asia.

This 5-day residential programme aims to prepare the next generation of outstanding leaders in Islamic banking & finance by providing them with unique mentoring opportunities, rigorous leadership training from renowned leaders, and industry-specific perspectives through case studies specifically written for this programme.

Designed on the foundation that leadership can best be understood by studying and closely observing the leaders themselves, the Cambridge-IFLP is designed to allow delegates to benefit from the presence of a number of mentors who are leading personalities in the global Islamic financial services industry.

SALIENT FEATURES

Leadership Talks

With a number of Leadership Talks given by industry leaders, Cambridge- IFLP delegates benefitS from in-depth knowledge and understanding from industry experts on how to develop themselves into effective and influential leaders in their respective organisations and in the global Islamic financial services industry. Leadership Talks covered wide range of topics and perspectives including structuring and product development, human resource development, and leadership perspectives

Leadership Interviews

Leadership Interviews provided great first-hand insights into leadership values, philosophies and qualities as well as an opportunity for delegates to flesh out questions to the leaders themselves.

Leadership Workshops

Leadership Workshops provide delegates with information and practical techniques to create a more positive, personal and professional culture back in their workplace. Our Leadership Workshops are highly interactive and provide a stimulating learning experience for delegates.

Leadership Activities

The aim of Leadership Activities is to identify leadership skills and traits in a fun way. This will also help the delegates to appreciate the importance of a number of basic and usually ignored and under-rated skills, notably problem solving, emotions management and cognitive intelligence.

Cambridge Cases

Delegates are introduced to real life case studies written specifically for the programme. Case study is used to gain an understanding of the issue in real life settings and recommended to answer how and why

Social Activities

During the 5 days at Clare College, delegates will take part in several social activities that are a must on the “to do” list when one is visiting the University of Cambridge. These include punting on the River Cam and enjoying one of Shakespeare’s famous play at King’s College garden. During the garden party at the Fellow’s Garden, delegates have the opportunity to enjoy the British summer weather while at the same time horned their leadership skills during the Cambridge IFLP Treasure Hunt activity organised on the college grounds.
