Dubai Islamic Economic Roundtable 2014 SERIES 6

The search for human capital poses significant challenges to organizations faced with the need for global managers with international experience, and qualified specialists with multi-functional expertise. Organizations must consider investing in human capital as a strategic target and an essential requirement for future success.

A group of the foremost industry experts in the field of training and accreditation recently gathered at the Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC) under the aegis of IFN and the Dubai financial authorities to discuss the current and chronic gap in the provision and training of human capital for the Islamic financial services industry; evaluate the value of certification and accreditation; and identify what steps can be taken to address this need and evolve new and more effective platforms for qualifications going forward.

Islamic Finance news was proud to bring together the exceptional industry knowledge, experience and analytical judgment of leading industry players Dr Noel Tagoe, Dr Eddy Chong, Dr Ali Al Sadik and Yasir Mustafa Osman Ourtashi. With representatives from multiple countries and some of the sector’s premier educational agencies, financial institutions, training providers and economic organizations, the discussion was characterized by its eloquence, insight and invaluable analysis of the current situation.
