Besides the academic programmes, IBS also offers training programmes for Islamic Financial Planners, Halal Management and ARRahnu and others. In addition, the academic staff are continuously having engagements with the Industry players in terms of strategic collaborations in joint research and publications as well as in designing curriculum for our students.

In an effort to bring impact to the various stakeholders particularly the communities, various programmes are conducted throughout the year such as Microtakaful Challenge Programme, “One School-One Community”, Health Campaigns and others. With these programmes, students are exposed to the real life challenges, developing skills towards having more empathy and later being agents to impart values, transferring knowledge to particularly, those who are of economically and financially disadvantaged.
