**More about this course**

Our MBA (Islamic Finance) covers the most important aspects of business administration, while introducing you to the principles of Islamic finance and exploring your potential for leadership within this industry.

The modules focus on the core of every business including strategic management, human resources, marketing, communications and operations and more. The research modules provide you with the space to conduct your own investigations into an area of business you want to focus on.

For the specialist Islamic finance modules, you’ll explore the underlying principles of sharia'compliant finance and how this influences credit risk, market risk and operational risk.

Our teaching staff and visiting academics, who you’ll meet both informally and formally through lectures and social events, are experts in areas including finance, banking, management and leadership.

Throughout the MBA you’ll collaborate with students from a variety of professions and disciplines. Your training is supplemented by regular informal learning activities including the weekly student'led Business Breakfast; a monthly dinner; networking events; meetings with business leaders; entrepreneurs and consultants and lively charity fundraising events in the City of London.

We’ll provide regular coaching sessions to help improve your career potential, while you can also make use of our Careers and Employability Unit to help you find new roles in preparation for life after the MBA.

**What our students say**

This MBA is a re'launch of our original MBA course, of which graduate and banker Gaurav Gajjar had this to say:

"I continue to benefit from [the student diversity and the real'life opportunities] in the multicultural and diverse markets I deal with on a daily basis. In addition it helped me hone my management and leadership skills helping me attain my goals.”
