It has gained credibility and has spread worldwide and is the preferred way of banking for one fifth of the world’s population. The taught MSc offer 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 an MA version of this programme and whilst the MSc is more suitable for candidates with some previous background in mathematics, statistics or econometrics, the MA is more suitable for candidates who prefer a less quantitative approach to their studies. The MSc International Banking and Development Finance is recognised by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) as the first year of a 1+3 PhD training programme.
