The MSc Islamic Finance programme provides you with an opportunity to study the success of Islamic finance, particularly in the current economic climate, to evaluate its principles and understand its unique approach to finance for today’s businesses and society.

Europe, USA and many other parts of the world have been in deep recession since 2008. This recession is mainly caused by the collapse of the conventional banking and finance model operated in most parts of the world.

The Islamic finance and banking industry has been growing at annual rates of 15-20% over the last decade and is expected to continue in the foreseeable future. Islamic finance and banking has demonstrated itself to be a serious contender to replace much of the conventional banking and finance industry around the world. At the end of 2011 the global Islamic finance services industry was valued at USD 1.4 trillion. The supply of qualified professionals to take up careers in this industry falls way short of demand.

The success of the Islamic finance is mainly due to a sound theoretical foundation based on the following principles:
-Rigorous ethical principles
-Interest-free banking
-A system based on real asset and real business transactions NOT on high speculation and high risk activities

Course content

This programme provides you with a solid foundation in Islamic Finance and prepares you for the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) Diploma in Islamic Finance. The first part covers the core discipline of accounting and finance. The second part focuses on Islamic Finance.

The LLM International Development Law is perfect for you if you would like to study international law from an Islamic perspective. Read more

The LLM International Development Law is perfect for you if you would like to study international law from an Islamic perspective. The course includes two compulsory modules – International Development Law and Islamic Finance Law – which will give you a solid foundation on which to build as you specialise in the area of international development. These will be combined with two modules of your choice from a wide range of options.

The International Development Law module considers the global issues of poverty eradication, human rights fulfilment and sustainable economic growth, and the related challenges. It also examines the foundations of international development law and seeks to offer a critical understanding of the political, economic and social context of global developmental challenges.

When Islamic Finance appeared in the banking sector in the 1970s, it wasn’t expected to survive. Not only did it survive, but it also weathered the storm of the financial crisis better than the conventional global finance market. The Islamic Finance Law module considers the lessons that can be learned. This cutting-edge module also examines the justifications for intellectual property rights from an Islamic perspective, and analyses the success of Islamic finance, seeking to understand how we can apply this learning to intellectual property and international trade.

The LLM International Development Law is regularly reviewed to ensure that its content is up to date and pertinent to current developments and challenges in the international arena.

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).

Programme Aims

To provide an opportunity for students to acquire critical knowledge and training in Islamic economics, finance and banking.
To train employers/executives in banking, insurance and commercial sectors who wish to specialise in Islamic economics, finance and banking, with an opportunity to explore Arabic language (with specific focus) or Islamic studies which will assist them in expanding this area of the banking and finance industry.
To provide an opportunity for fresh graduates in related disciplines to specialise their knowledge in the area of Islamic economics and finance with the added option of Islamic studies.

Programme Elements

The programme is comprised of four compulsory units:

Islamic Economics and Finance will enable students to identify and understand the concepts and practices of Islamic economics and finance in conjunction with the definition and practical implementation of the western model of economics and finance. From a broader perspective, this unit will also enable students to understand Islamic financial engineering and liquidity management within the capital market context.

Islamic Commercial Law is designed to enable students to understand the sources, concepts and principles of Islamic law (Shari’ah), and its application in commercial transactions. This unit will enable students to analyse the main rulings of Islamic commercial law, including the prohibitions of interest, excessive uncertainty, and their rationale. From a broader perspective, it will enable students to comprehend the legal concepts underlying Islamic insurance products.

Applied Islamic Banking and Insurance will enable students to apply the core concepts of Islamic finance in an Islamic banking and insurance operation, to review and assess the commercial performance of Islamic financial institutions according to underlying Islamic principles, and critically compare the ideal concepts and practical implementation in Islamic and western banking and insurance.

Islamic Accounting and Auditing is designed to offer a comprehensive understanding of accounting for Islamic financial services, to enable students to analytically apply Islamic accounting principles and the related accounting regulatory framework into the context of business and social transactions in Islamic financial services, and review and assess the financial reporting and performance of Islamic financial institutions.

This has led to the creation of a seminar series, featuring prominent figures from both industry and academia.

Professional Module Exemptions

The Chartered Banker Institute (CBI) has recognised masters programmes offered by the School of Economics and Finance for advanced standing for the Chartered Banker Diploma. Graduates can proceed directly to the Chartered Banker Diploma with no requirement for prior underpinning study, recognising the high level of commonality of elements within LLM Law and Economics programme content against the CBI’s Diploma modules.

Networking opportunities

On many of our modules, you will have the opportunity to hear from and discuss with prominent figures from leading institutions, including the Bank of England, the World Bank, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the European Central Bank, the Bank for International Settlements, the International Monetary Fund, as well as partners in law firms from across the world.

Taught modules

To specialise in this area, you must select 90 credits of modules from this list and do your compulsory dissertation in the same field of law (45 credits). The additional 45 credits of taught modules can be in this area or can be unrelated and therefore selected from the full list of LLM available modules.

All modules are 22.5 credits unless otherwise stated below.

Note: Not all of the modules listed will be available in any one year. Any modules not available in the forthcoming academic session will be marked as soon as this information is confirmed by teaching academics.

Over the past two or three decades or so, Islamic banking and finance has emerged as another viable way of financial intermediation. Read more

Over the past two or three decades or so, Islamic banking and finance has emerged as another viable way of financial intermediation. It has gained credibility and has spread worldwide and is the preferred way of banking for one fifth of the world’s population. This taught MA offers an opportunity to study the structure of the Islamic banking and finance industry, including its theoretical foundations, products, performance, Islamic financial instruments and risk management issues. These and other topics will be studied within the wider context of the banking and finance industry worldwide. There is also an MSc version of this MA programme, and whilst the MSc is more suitable for candidates with some previous background in mathematics, statistics or econometrics, this MA is more suitable for candidates who prefer a less quantitative approach to their studies.

Course structure

January intake: Taught modules are undertaken in the period of January to June and September to January and will involve the study of 120 credits. The dissertation (or equivalent) is valued at 60 credits and is undertaken during the period of June to September.

September intake: Taught modules are undertaken in the period of September to June and will involve the study of 120 credits. The dissertation (or equivalent) is valued at 60 credits and is undertaken during the period of June to September.

Compulsory modules:

Research Methods: This module develops knowledge of intermediate and advanced research methods, and provides a basis in research methodology for those who may eventually wish to pursue research degrees.

International Financial Markets: This module provides an overview of financial instruments in a multi-currency world, taking account of insights from portfolio theory concerning the relationship between risk and return, the diversification of risk, and the pricing of assets.

Islamic Finance: This module provides an insight into topical issues relating to Islamic financial instruments and related risk management issues. The first part of the module examines issues relating to financial contracting, instruments and various intermediation issues. The second part focuses on the role of the capital market in providing Islamic financing, and highlights financial engineering and risk management features of this type of business.

Islamic Banking: This module provides an insight into the key features of Islamic banking business. The first part of the course outlines the theoretical foundations and development of Islamic banking practices. In particular, the main characteristics of various types of Islamic banking products are discussed. The second part of the course examines the operational features of Islamic banks, focusing on their performance and how they compete with conventional interest-based banks. The final part of the course outlines contemporary challenges to Islamic banking business.

International Banking: This module examines the origins of international banking, the activities of international banks, the markets in which they participate, and the sources of risk. You will investigate the determinants of the efficiency of international banks, and evaluate the implications for banks’ strategic decision-making.

Financial Crises and Bank Regulation: This module examines why banks and financial markets are inherently vulnerable to crises, and analyses the role of policy makers and institutions. The roles of monetary policy, bank supervision and regulation, corporate governance and ratings agencies in mitigating or exacerbating crises are considered.

Optional modules (choose 2):

Islamic Accounting and Financial Reporting: This module develops a critical awareness of theoretical and practical approaches to Islamic accounting and financial reporting. Islamic accounting standards are compared with IFRS, and the content and impact of academic research in this area is examined.

Corporate Risk Management: This module provides an analysis of pure risk and its management.

Bank Financial Management: This module provides a grounding in the nature, strategic context and managerial functions of financial management in banks and other financial services firms. Three key themes are: identification and management of the trade-off between risk and return; improvement of a bank’s value using market models; and external market-based tests of bank performance.

Financial Institutions Strategic Management: This module examines the main theoretical and practical issues concerning banking business. You will develop a critical awareness of the theory of the banking firm, the motives for international banking, and regulatory and structural issues impacting on bank behaviour.

Course Overview

The MBA is an internationally recognised and respected qualification for managers. Applicants are from both the public and private sectors in the UK and abroad.

The teaching programme is aimed at those who are looking to develop their careers and at 'high flyers' that need an understanding of all the major functions of business providing generalist knowledge for prospective leaders.

In addition to enhancing successful students' career prospects, the course aims to encourage independent and creative thinkers. This is done by following the UK Quality Assurance Agency guidelines in giving students a 'strong practical and professional orientation' differentiating it from other masters programmes.

All students complete seven taught modules, (five compulsory core modules and two optional modules), together with a final dissertation/project.​

See the website https://www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/management/courses/Pages/MBA---Master-of-Business-Administration-.aspx

​Course Content​​

The core modules are designed to expose participants to state of the art thinking in the key management disciplines and provide opportunity throughout to apply theory to real life management situations.
- Accounting for Decision-Makers
- Marketing
- Operations Management
- People and Organisations
- Strategic Management

Elective Modules:
Participants will be able to choose from a range of electives. These will include:
- Management of Finance
- Capital Markets and Derivatives
- Principles of Islamic Finance
- Islamic Investment Banking
- Managing People in a Global Context
- Developing People for Leadership and Management
- Buyer Behaviour and Relationship Marketing
- Strategic Global Marketing
- Product Development Management
- Managing the Product Development Process
- Project Management Theory and Practice
- Delivering Successful Projects

Successful completion of a combination of these subjects (with core modules and final project / dissertation) will entitle students to the award of MBA. However, students may opt to undertake a specialism, studying two subjects in the same area, for example Principles of Islamic Finance and Islamic Investment Banking; the programme offers several pathways for students wishing to have their specialisms noted, and these include:
- MBA (Finance)
- MBA (Islamic Finance)
- MBA (Human Resource Management)
- MBA (Marketing)
- MBA (Product Development Management)
- MBA (Project Management)

Final Module (40 credits):
The final, 40 credit project is a double module, completed by students after they have completed all taught modules. Whether an academic piece of research or an investigation into the launching of a business; it is designed to be an intellectually challenging piece of individual management research. It will equip successful students with the knowledge, capabilities and competences required of today's managers, in a world in which the ability to research new information is increasingly important.

​Learning & Teaching​

​Students are allocated a supervisor for their final, 40 credit module, who will provide constructive comment on their work as it develops. Students have access to online as well as standard library facilities. The entire process, from development of a draft research proposal and schedule, through selecting methods and drafting chapters, is supported by the Cardiff School of Management supervisors but managed and implemented by the student.

Assessment

Assessment is via a combination of examinations, assignments, presentations, groupwork and the final project.

Employability & Careers​

There have been developments within the School and Institution to encourage employability. The module in Core Skills in the first semester, for example, has introduced the student to the maintenance of personal records.

Careers events and a Blackboard on-line module allow students opportunities to further their knowledge. "Campus Pack" offers a student the capacity to build their e-portfolio within their online modules. This is designed with the following aims:
- Social Assignments: Empower instructors, academic technologists, and instructional designers to build and implement assignments and activities from a palette of re-usable social media tools including wikis, blogs, journals, podcasts, and templates.

- Social Network and Academic Commons: Implement a secure social network and community for instructors, students, departments, and administrators.

- e-Portfolios: Provide every individual a space and network to create, categorize, assess, and present academic and co-curricular activities with instructors, peers, advisors, or anyone in the world.

- Personal Development Plans: Personal Development Plans (PDP) facilitate the structure necessary for students to reflect upon individual learning, performance, and achievement, and map personal, educational, and career development. Institutions can easily design template profiles to meet the needs of different users and skill set groups.

The Alumni office and the MBA Team have also been developing networks, for example through social media such as Linked In. The success of these networks has been evidenced by the amount of former students currently in contact with the university about their employment, allowing current and former students to form links, and network.

The invitation to join with Merseburg University of Applied Sciences in Germany, to offer a Project Management Summer school is further evidence of the reputation now established and enhances any professional accreditation applications further. In July 2013, a tuition programme was offered, combining theory and practice and adhering to PMI global standards. This summer school opportunity not only offered the opportunity to foster partnerships in Europe alongside valuable learning experiences for students, it was centred on a live project. The project included the subdivisions of Funding, Regional Development and Visitor Centre, marketing strategy and Information systems.

The LLM programme is a single subject law programme that may be taken over a period of one year (full-time), or part-time over a period of two, three or four years. Every student will be required to take modules equivalent to four full units. The assessment of one of the chosen full units (which must be from your chosen specialism) will be by means of a 15,000 word dissertation.

The dissertation must be linked to a module offered at SOAS itself, and attendance on the module will be treated as being part of the process of supervision. With permission of the LLM tutor, students will be entitled to select one complementary subject or the equivalent from comparable Master’s module at SOAS including appropriate language modules. A complementary subject may be chosen in substitution for either a full or a half-subject.

Examinations for all taught modules will be held in May/June of each year and the dissertation will be due for submission during September of the final year of registration. The assessment for each module may vary according to the extent to which the research component of each module is to be stressed.

It is expected that all students will graduate with an LLM in law. It is possible, however, for students wishing to graduate with a ‘specialist’ degree, to do so by way of opting to take three or more modules from the relevant subject groupings below. In each case, the student must undertake a dissertation in that subject grouping.

Structure

Every student will be required to take modules equivalent to four (4.0) full units. Students who wish to graduate with a specialised LLM are required to take at least three (3.0) of the four (4.0) units within their chosen specialism, including the dissertation. The assessment of one of the chosen full units (within the LLM specialism) will be by means of a 15,000 word dissertation.

Faculty of Law and Social Sciences (L&SS)

Welcome to the Faculty of Law and Social Sciences at SOAS. The faculty is the largest in the School in terms of student and staff numbers and consists of the departments of Development Studies, Economics, Financial and Management Studies, Politics and International Studies and the School of Law, as well as the Asia-Pacific Centre for Social Sciences, the Centre for Gender Studies, the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy, the Centre of Taiwan Studies and a number of department-specific centres. All five departments offer undergraduate programmes, and all but Finance and International Management offer joint undergraduate degrees which can be combined with other disciplines from across the School. Each department also offers a range of masters-level programmes with a regional or disciplinary specialism, as well as a postgraduate research programme. The range of course options and combinations is one of the most distinctive characteristics of studying at SOAS and all students are given the option of studying an Asian or African language, either as part of or on top of their degree.

Staff in the faculty come from all over the world and combine regional knowledge with disciplinary specialisms. Teaching draws heavily on academic staff’s individual research which allows the faculty to maintain a large portfolio of courses, often exploring cutting-edge issues. Many faculty members have played a significant part in public debates and policy-making in relation to Asia and Africa. Academics in the faculty are regularly consulted by governments, public bodies and multilateral organisations including the United Nations and the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, European Commission, DFID and other country-specific organisations and NGOs.
