About

The Islamic Finance and Management programme at Durham University is designed to provide rigorous training at the frontier of research, giving you the opportunity to develop the advanced analytical and technical skills that are highly sought after by global employers.

Overview

The first of its kind at a global level, the Islamic Finance and Management programme at Durham University is a cross-disciplinary specialised programme, aiming to provide management-related knowledge and skills to students who, at the same time, specialise in Islamic Finance. This programme requires less quantitative material, knowledge and skills then MSc Islamic Finance.

The programme consists of a set of core and elective modules, culminating in a practice-based business project or a research-based dissertation.

International Opportunities

  • International Study Tour 

We organise an optional International Study Tour to a European destination, typically Switzerland. This intensive programme takes place over several days, normally in March/April, and offers you a great opportunity to get an ‘inside perspective’ on international business, and to network with key staff within organisations.

  • International Conferences 

We organise and sponsor international conferences on Islamic economics and finance in collaboration with other leading global academic institutions such as the Islamic Research and Training Institute (IRTI) of the Islamic Development Bank; International Shari’ah Research Academy (ISRA), Malaysia; and Kyoto University, Japan.
