Course summary

Course Summary

This one-year full-time programme is designed to provide rigorous training at the frontier of research, giving you the opportunity to develop the advanced analytical and technical skills that are highly sought after by global employers. The first of its kind at a global level, MSc Islamic Finance and Management is a cross-disciplinary specialised programme, aiming to provide management-related knowledge and skills to students who, at the same time, specialise in Islamic Finance. This programme requires less quantitative material, knowledge and skills then MSc Islamic Finance. The programme consists of a set of core and elective modules, culminating in a practice-based business project or a research-based dissertation.

Course Learning and Teaching

The programme is mainly delivered through a mixture of lectures and seminars. Lectures provide key contents of a particular topic. Occasionally lectures might be delivered by guest speakers who are internationally recognised academic experts or practitioners in their field. Students can also attend the Durham Speaker Series including Islamic Finance Programme’s specialised seminars, providing the opportunity to network with senior business leaders, academics, staff and alumni.

Seminars provide the opportunity for smaller groups of students to solve problems and discuss and debate issues based on knowledge gained through lectures and independent study outside the programme’s formal contact hours. These help students to articulate the knowledge they have developed in the lectures and independent study time.

Students study 7 core modules, and select 1 elective module to study, which enables them to undertake more in-depth study of particular topics. This is followed by a 12,000 word dissertation to allow students to carry out independent research and develop their skills in analysis and scholarly expression, using an appropriate theoretical framework. They are supported in writing their dissertation through the study of research methods, and attending individual meetings with an allocated supervisor, who monitors their progress and provides advice.
