Year One (Semester 1 & 2)
The first year provides the foundation in business related disciplines necessary for the understanding of the more focused business subjects studied in the second and final year of the course. Students from a wide variety of educational backgrounds are all brought up to a common standard during the first year. This enables us to accept students without specific pre–requirements. The students will study two semesters of courses encompassing a range of subjects fundamental to the understanding of business. These subjects cover Business Law, Economics, Accounting, Principles of Marketing, Human Resource Management, Introduction to International Business, Financial Accounting and Quantitative Business Analysis.
The second year will focus on major Islamic banking modules. It will cover the basics of Islamic Jurisprudence which consists more of the rules and regulations of Al–Quran and Al–Sunnah. Besides that students will be exposed to the Islamic view on property and law. The details on Islamic Entrepreneurship and Transaction will be taught as well as the history of Islamic Banking in the global context. Exposure to other areas of knowledge of economics, investment analysis and operation management is also given via supplementary modules to produce wholesome graduates equipped with both Conventional and Islamic banking knowledge.
In the final year, students will learn more about Islamic legal maxims which will be a continuation of Islamic jurisprudence. An exposure to the practical aspect of Islamic banking practices and theory will also be given. Students will learn about the globalization of finance and Islamic economics which include the ideology and development of theory in Islamic banking practices. At the end of semester 6 students are required to submit a project paper or dissertation which covers areas of the modules taught to them.
