    • Basically there is no organization to accreditate teh PhD program to the best of my knowledge. But if university is accrediated then PhD is also recognized. There are lots of Diploma mills providing distance learning DBA/PhD and check the university accredition before begining. The goverment accredition bodies are well recognized.

    • They are properly accredited as their inception was initiated by Central Bank of Malaysia, Malaysian government statutory body, and one of the best central bank in the world. No where in the world, government body and being one of the best central bank in the world put no effort to get their program accredited. It is matter of procedural process and time, I’m sure they are now acquired their accreditation.

    • There is no problem and will always in that way, for non-muslim studying Islamic banking. The best Islamic banking program is in Malaysia. There are several institutes institute has offered this programme, both on Master and PHD level. The first one is International Islamic University of Malaysia (IIUM) offered BSc, Msc and PHD Islamic Banking and Finance. The second one is INCEIF, offered Master and PHD in Islamic Finance, together with CIFP (Chartered Islamic Finance Professional) that equivalent to Master Degree’s. The other one is UiTM (Universiti Teknologi MARA) offered BBA (Hons.) Islamic Banking and Master in Islamic Finance and Banking. All those university are well recognized in their country as they are public university. INCEIF is think tank centre specialized on islamic finance initiated by Malaysian governement. The thing studying in such country like Malaysia is, the country with Islam either dominant or official religion, with academician him/herself is Muslim, you will learn to the core of the Islamic value, not some mock-up programme with Islamic title but there is no true value as intended by Islam.

    • Proceed to your own country as I bet every Muslim countries should have their own Islamic banking and finance programme offered by their public university. Learn Islam finance from Muslim is the best way for me. But, if you want Islamic banking from western view, Durham university is the best as they have their own centre for islamic economic, banking and finance, or if you want the best education institution in the world for Islamic banking, Malaysia is the absolute choice, go for it..
