Our Students’ Say!

I took my first step towards Islamic Finance in the year 2006. It is when I enrolled in Islamic finance courses at AIMS. After completing my diploma, I secured a good position in one of the leading Islamic banks. Life was very busy. But I was too ambitious my profession growth. So, I started the PhD in Islamic Banking and Finance as a part time student. Initially, I found it hard to research and write. But the highly supportive staff (including my understanding supervisor) helped me and enhanced my confidence. They gave me appreciation to achieve my PhD Islamic finance, and they combined that with a healthy dose of practical help. Time passed in a blink of an eye, and I successfully completed my PhD in Islamic Finance. Now, I am a Senior Investment Consultant, and I also visit universities to deliver lectures. Now, I feel very lucky to be in this position and that I chose AIMS to build my career.
