Good news came to one of the Masters of Management students at STIE Perbanas Surabaya. The reason is, the student's full name is Zainiyatul Afifah, who managed to get a Research Scholarship from the National Zakat Agency (BAZNAS). Based on Decree Number 025 / SK / LBB / 10/2020 concerning the Determination of 2020 BAZNAS Research Scholarship Recipients, the STIE Perbanas Surabaya Master of Management student became one of the recipients for the Strata 2 (S2) level.
It is known, there were 109 participants who received BAZNAS Research Scholarships in 2020. This number consists of, 78 scholarship recipients at the S1 level, 25 scholarship recipients at the Masters level, and 6 recipients at the S3 level.
Contacted after the appointment, Zainiyatul is a graduate of the Bachelor of Sharia Economics program. He admitted that he likes and is more expert in Islamic finance. "Taking a master of management at STIE Perbanas Surabaya did not necessarily make me leave Islamic finance. In fact, during my studies I also worked at one of the national zakat institutions in Surabaya. Previously, I also worked in Islamic banking financial institutions, "he explained.
In connection with the research scholarship achievement, he submitted a thesis entitled "Efficiency Analysis of Financial Performance Management and Distribution of Indonesian Zakat Fund Management Institutions (Application of International Standard of Zakat Management)". During the research being carried out, he admitted that it was currently running smoothly. "It's just that it is a little difficult to refer to it because I happen to use the International Standard of Zakat Management Method. And, this is a method that has just been inaugurated, so there are still a few references for it, "said Zainiyatul.
She continued, management science at STIE Perbanas Surabaya was used as a provision to complement the field of knowledge she hadpreviously taken. "So I also took the title of a thesis related to Islamic finance, which in this case is related to zakat finance. The data, I only need to take it in the financial reports of zakat institutions that are published in general and have received a decree as a National Amil Zakat Institution, "he concluded. (eko/hms)
