M.Sc. in Islamic Banking and Finance

You will gain the necessary skills and knowledge required to work in this growing and sophisticated banking and finance sector. Against a background of ethical finance and sustainability, you will look at understanding, applying and critically assessing modern corporate governance, modern capital structure theory, its relevance to the structure of contemporary business environments and how this impacts the returns achieved by investing in modern firms. 

In light of the recent financial crisis, you will look at the critical role played by complex financial instruments in the management of risk and the need for financial engineering skills. You will also develop your skills in financial analysis to forecast future investment opportunities and devise strategies to minimise the risks associated with equity valuation and issuance of equity in different sectors of the economy. This programme will prepare you to sit the CFA exams. 

On completion of your programme you will be able to effectively perform relevant ethical banking and finance tasks, including specific requirements of Islamic banking, financial products and services. 

You will also learn to be effective, working independently and as part of a team, while critically evaluating and developing good practice in the planning and management of general, commercial and Islamic banking and financial products and services.
