Perhaps the distinguishing and important starting point in my scientific, academic and professional career was my enrollment in the Master’s program in Banking and Finance and offered by the Institute of Banking Studies, where the program’s curriculum is characterized by consistency and the presentation of concepts in a modern way and taking into consideration the developments in the financial and banking arenas. In this program I received what prepared me to launch in professional fields and academic research.

 I consider this program as one of the best in peers, at least, at the regional level. Through the program, I got to meet prominent national, economic, and banking experts, among the best teachers and an elite group of those students enrolled in the program, which prompted me to complete my studies in the field of Islamic banking to obtain my PhD and do a lot of research. I invite everyone interested and ambitious in the financial and banking matters to join this distinguished program so that it will be a milestone in his professional and academic journey. My thanks and gratitude to the Institute, represented by its faculty members and administrative staff.

The program gave me a great exposure across all different aspects of the finance world. Specially at the beginning of my career, knowledge of financial statements, corporate finance and portfolio management have been beneficial in securing my first roles in financial risk management in Cairo Amman Bank.

Earning the MA degree in banking and finance has been one of my most valuable achievements, in my career path and my personal life, working and studying helps me to develop many skills in life as time management and communication skills. And for my career path this degree helped me to increase my knowledge and to achieve other certifications as FRM ( Financial risk management) and helped me to reach where i am today.


I'm thankful for the Institute of Banking studies and for all the professors that support us during the two years of study.

Joining the master's program offered by the institute, affected me, both on my academic and professional paths.  Whereas I was pleased to join one of the best academic programs specialized in finance in the Kingdom, to receive the appropriate knowledge and skill from the best faculty members with academic and practical experiences, which was a significant motivator to complete, a PhD in Financial Economics from the prestigious University of New Orleans in the United States of America.
