With cooperation of ABEST21 school member International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM), we invited Dr. Engku Rabiah Adawiah Bintiengku Ali of IIUM and held a seminar on "Islamic Banking and Finance" on March 9, 10 and 11, 2012. The Seminar was held as a part of the Collaboration Program “Sharing Quality of Management Education and Development of Peer Review System”, under the “Programs for the Support of Strategic University Collaboration towards University Education Enhancement 2009” by MEXT.

 

On Friday March 9 the Seminar took place at Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa (Tokyo), chaired by Professor Takato Hiraki (Tokyo University of Science). Two lectures were given: “Development of the Capital Market in Malaysia” by Professor Hatsuyoshi Ichino (Aoyama Gakuin University) and “Islamic Banking and Finance” by Dr. Engku Rabiah Adawiah Bintiengku Ali (IIUM). The lectures were followed by the active discussion with participating students from Aoyama and Waseda Business Schools on the concept of Riba in Islamic Finance.

 

On Saturday March 10 and Sunday March 11, the Seminar took place in Nanzan Gakuen Training Center (Nagoya), chaired by Professor Edward Yagi (Nanzan University).
In this Seminar, four lectures were delivered: “Development of the Capital Market in Malaysia” by Professor Hatsuyoshi Ichino (Aoyama Gakuin University), “Islamic Banking and Finance” by Dr. Engku Rabiah Adawiah Bintiengku Ali (in the picture), “Global Data Explosion and Finance in the New Information Age” by Professor Katsuhiko Okada (Kwansei Gakuin University), and “Islamic Bank Financing of Business in Muslim Countries” by Professor KHONDAKER Mizanur Rahman (Nanzan University).
Furthermore, discussion on “Reinforcement of global development capability at Japanese enterprises and business school education” was carried out as a student interaction session between Nanzan and Kwansei Gakuin Business Schools. Professor Toshihiko Shiraki who coordinated the seminar at Nanzan University shares the following impressions of the Seminar: “At the seminar at Nanzan, there were about 20 participants, students and faculty members, including participants of social gathering. Through the seminar we aimed to understand management knowledge and challenges which the global companies face and to acquire perspectives and way of thinking on finance required in the new age. Through discussions on knowledge required for Japanese companies to develop global business and the significance of business school education, we learned the attitude of working on practical issues. Students who participated in the seminar commented that they learned the management ability and way of thinking required at global companies and expect much from cooperation among business schools”.

 

The seminar was a successful and very insightful event. We would like to thank Dr. Engku Rabiah Adawiah Bintiengku Ali for donating the following books to ABEST21.
