A new career in banking

Banking industries has been with us since the dawn of trading. Over time, banking industries have developed in line with the needs of the business environment.

Within the industry of banking, Malaysia is one of the countries which is aggressively implementing Islamic Banking and Finance, currently ranking 5th globally in the Islamic Finance sector after United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar.

This rise of Islamic Banking Institutions in Malaysia has resulted in widened career scopes in banking industries.

While a career focussing in this areas is not new, the lack of professionals who are qualified in Islamic Banking and Finance makes graduates with qualifications specific to this field in demand.

Islamic Banking is also one area in the Government’s Key National Economic Area (NKEA) under the 10th Malaysia Plan’s Entry Pont Project (EPP) whereby they aim to provide the benchmark for minimum standards in Islamic Banking and Finance education.

SPM students who have a minimum of 3 credits and would like to pursue a career in the Islamic Banking industry can apply for SEGi College Sarawak’s Diploma in Islamic Banking (DIIB).

“Graduates with Islamic Banking qualification have a wider career perspective in both Islamic banking and conventional banking compared to graduates who only possess a conventional banking qualification,” said Madam Elina Tiu, the Principal of SCSwk.

The DIIB programme is recognized by the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and Malaysia Qualification Agency (MQA).

SCSwk is currently having their Open Day on 30th and 31st March 2013 with promotions including RM500 Open Day registration and ‘A’ rebates for those who have A’s in their SPM results.

SCSwk offers Scholarships to SPM and STPM high achievers. Financial assistance in terms of study loans are also available.
