About Professional Diploma in Islamic Economics and Finance at Al-Maktoum College of Higher Education

In the aftermath of the financial crisis, there is an increasing need among scholars of economics and those working in the field to identify and understand what Islamic economics is and how it can contribute to the western system of finance and multiculturalism. This, of course, poses the questions ‘What is the difference between the concept of “Islamic economics and finance” and that of pure “economics and finance”?’ and ‘Is “Islamic economics and finance” capable of contributing to a secular society?’ The four compulsory units of this programme meet the requirements of those who wish to improve their understanding of key Islamic economics, finance and banking concepts and practices that may have significant impact on their work. The programme is available on a part-time or full-time basis, and can also be offered intensively.

This programme is approved and credit-rated by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA).
