The practice of Islamic banking has become a fast growing and widespread phenomenon, not only in the Muslim countries, but also in non-Muslim countries as well, such as the UK, US, Switzerland, and Singapore. The transformation from a conventional form of banking to a banking system based on interest-free finance has generated a great deal of interest in terms of calling for human capital development in the field to ensure sustainability and good performance in the Islamic financial industry. With its announcement as a leading international and regional hub for Islamic finance, Malaysia has become one of the Muslim countries which had placed strong focus on human capital development in Islamic Finance by developing many training and educational centers, such as the Securities Industry Development Corporation (SIDC); the Islamic Banking & Finance Institute Malaysia (IBFIM); the International Centre for Leadership in Finance (ICLIF); the International Centre for Education in Islamic Finance (INCEIF) and the International Shari'ah Research Academy for Islamic Finance (ISRA). The main objective of this paper is to provide a tracer study of INCEIF-CIFP first graduates and to determine their employability in the field of Islamic finance, locally and internationally
