All praise is due and belongs to Allaah alone. May the peace and benedictions of Allaah be upon the final prophet, his entire family, and companions.

Islamic University is a groundbreaking educational institution in Madinah, the city of the messenger of Allah, may the peace and benedictions of Allaah be upon him, and the bedrock of the eternal message of Islam, where it sprang to guide people and advance humanity.

The university is one of the foremost and oldest universities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Since its inception in (1381 AH/1961), it has sought to be a leading global Islamic beacon in promoting knowledge and making a positive impact on the local and international community, with a commitment to excellence and comprehensiveness.

The Vice Presidency for Investment and Business Development plays an indispensable role, as it is the executive arm of the university that works to achieve its vision, mission, and objectives according to its strategic plan. It also contributes to enhancing institutional performance, developing human capital, and improving the university’s technologies, services, and infrastructure.

I implore Allaah, the Almighty, to grant us success and guide our footsteps in whatever we seek to achieve for the sake of our dear homeland and our beloved university.
