  • Keadaan kewangan sesuatu organisasi dalam dunia yang penuh dengan pergolakan ini merupakan pengukur tentang kekukuhan organisasi itu. Keadaan kewangan yang tidak stabil atau tidak kukuh itu biasanya boleh membawa kesan yang amat negatif terhadap organisasi tersebut. Kewangan juga merupakan nadi kepada sesuatu badan, sama ada dalam sektor awam atau swasta. Justeru itu pengurusan kewangan merupakan salah satu perkara yang amat penting, lebih-lebih lagi dalam dunia yang kian mencabar. Kertas ini bertujuan menggariskan beberapa pandangan mengenai pengurusan kewangan yang mampu menangani cabaran pada masa hadapan. Untuk tujuan ini, kita perlu memberikan suatu takrif yang jelas tentang apakah sistem kewangan yang ingin kita wujudkan, apakah cabaran-cabarannya serta apakah cara mengatasi cabar...

  • Islam telah diwahyukan kepada manusia melalui Rasulullah (s.a.w.) lebih daripada empat belas kurun yang lampau. Ia telah berjaya membentuk satu system hidup yang lengkap yang merangkumi semua aspek termasuk ekonomi. Di dalam sistem ekonominya, seperti sistem yang lain, terdapat beberapa lembaga yang mendukung pelaksanaan sistem tadi untuk memastikan kejayaannya. Justeru itu, kebanyakan lembaga yang telah dibentuk adalah hampir sama tua dengan agama Islam itu sendiri. Kertas ini bertujuan menghuraikan lembaga tersebut dari segi konsep, matlamat dan fungsi masing-masing untuk mendedahkan kerelevanan dan kedinamikan mereka dalam konteks ekonomi kini supaya sesuatu yang berfaedah dapat dieksploitasikan dalam pelaksanaan sistem ekonomi Islam yang begitu progresif dan dinamik kelak.

  • Dasar penerapan nilai Islam telah diumumkan oleh kerajaan pada tahun 1982 khusus untuk sektor awam bagi meningkatkan keberkesanan pentadbiran awam negara. Tetapi, semasa pengumuman itu dilakukan, tidak ada suatu garis panduan yang lengkap dikemukakan tentangnya, sehinggalah pada tahun 1991 apabila INTAN mengeluarkan sebuah buku mengenainya yang bertajuk Nilai dan Etika dalam Perkhidmatan Awam. Buku tersebut telah mengandungi, antara lain, penjelasan pada pertama kali mengenainya oleh Y.A.B. Dato Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, Perdana Menteri sendiri.

  • We already have a very excellent and efficient financial system in the country. We have the whole system in place that has supported various complex needs of the country. We have developed it with utmost care and vigour that it is well-poised to meet the future needs as well. We are in fact trying to make Kuala Lumpur the hub of an excellent financial system in the region. Why then do we need an Islamic alternative to the system? Many would think that the Muslims are not permitted by their religion to indulge in riba or usurious activities. Since our financial system is based on interest, the Muslims cannot freely participate in it. This is definitely true, especially when the Muslim jurists in the country and almost all elsewhere consider the prevailing system unacceptable to the Shari...

  • When Thatcher's government of Britian declared in 1979 to charge full-cost fees to foreign students, there was some decrease in foreign student enrollment in British universities. University fees in U.S. that used to be higher than those in England suddenly became more competitive. Soon, people got around it by conducting twinning programmes to reduce cost of obtaining foreign qualifications. The current economic downturn does not only increase education cost due to the fall in the value of Ringgit but immediately increased pressure on local universities to provide sufficient places for qualified undergraduates. The overwhelming number of qualified students seeking university education has encouraged a proliferation of private institutions. However, as is obvious these days, the fe...

  • It is well to begin with the statement that there is yet no agreed definition of sustainable development. For, it is an emerging concept attempting to assimilate the dynamism of a process of change that cannot ignore local concerns, needs, and interests. Being relatively new, it evolves as we learn to grasp its wider implications for different aspects of our lives. The key question here is: what it is that we want to sustain.

  • Hasan, Zubair (2008)

  • Over the past three decades, Islamic finance has been the fastest growing segment of the global financial system. Though it may be expected that education and training have kept pace with this fast growing market, this paper finds that the current state of Islamic finance education at the graduate level is in a very unsatisfactory state. Using Malaysia as an illustrative case, the paper looks at the range, sufficiency and quality of Islamic finance education. It evaluates the current state of Islamic finance education at the graduate level in the context of the overall graduate education in Malaysia and suggests policy measures to meet the future challenges of the Islamic finance education, particularly at the graduate level.

  • Merchants in every civilization operate within specific institutional frameworks, which determine their relative efficiency and their transaction costs. It can be argued that a more advanced and efficient institutional framework leads to lower transaction costs and lower transaction costs, in turn, lead to higher competitiveness. Merchant privileged to operate within an institutional environment allowing lower transaction costs simply can compete better and drive their competitors, operating at higher transaction costs, out of international markets.
