Dubai (Sep 18, 2013): Mayfield University now ranks third in the online Islamic banking degree category in the Middle East according to a recent report published by World Wide Academics, a global education portal. Mayfieldis ahead of many well-recognized online universities in offering regionally accredited Islamic banking and finance programs that are 100 percent online and is ranking as one of the top five Islamic banking program providers.

All universities included in the World Wide Academics 2013 Fall Report have been numerically ranked to ensure academic quality and each program has been evaluated on a multitude of factors - including regional accreditation, faculty credentials, student support, education quality and financial aid services. While on a broader ranking level, the schools were judged on international acceptance and high employability rate.
The methodology for the rankings employed four key factors pertaining to educational benefits offered to working adults in the Middle East. These include the educational institution’s global certification, participation in the student facilitation plan, membership of MEAC and offering of at least one credit-granting bachelor's-level course in Islamic Banking and Finance.
The data revealed by the report also indicates approximately 35% increase in enrollment at Mayfield University. “Islamic Banking is now the preferred way of banking for one fifth of the world’s population,” said Gray S.
