In line with Dubai’s ambition to become a hub for Islamic economics and finance, a group of around 200 students at Zayed University launched the InveSlamic Club at an event held recently on the Abu Dhabi campus.
Dr. Marilyn Roberts, Provost at Zayed University, and Suzanna El Massah, Assistant Professor at the College of Business and founder of the InveSlamic Club, inaugurated the two-day event in the presence of a large number of students from Zayed University.
Speaking on the occasion, Professor El Massah said, “Zayed University is always keen on preparing qualified graduates who can fulfill the UAE labour market requirements, which is in dire need of experts and specialists in the Sharia-compliant banking industry that is growing rapidly.”
Latifa AlSubousi, President of InveSlamic Club and senior student at the College of Business, said, “At Zayed University, we studied various courses including an Islamic finance course that was designed particularly to give us insight into the building blocks of Islamic finance, one of the fastest growing segments of the global finance industry and a highly sought-after profession in the UAE.”
