Therefore, it is crucial for Islamic bank to better position themselves in order to undertake and respond enthusiastically to the robustness of the dual banking environment. This paper analyzed the factor considered important by academicians in public higher institution in selecting Islamic banking. The study revealed that religious value appears to be the most important factor. Other factors perceived to be important include trustworthiness, product variety, service facility and service efficiency. A cluster analysis indicates that customers can be divided into three clusters with distinctive demographic and factors for each cluster.
