Program Description
 
The MIFM Program, embraces both Islamic and conventional finance. Islamic finance benefits from the insights and the excellent technical instruments developed by conventional finance; conventional finance enjoys a broader scope by recognizing and including the ethical underpinning of the Islamic finance industry. This view thus expands the potential of the field of finance and offers a clear strategic edge to firms that can modify their mindsets. In particular, MIFM offers this key benefit to its students.

The MIFM program contains a balanced mix of conventional and Islamic finance modules. This structure enables students to gain a clear overview on the similarities, divergences, and synergies between Islamic and conventional finance and prepares them to hold key positions in the Islamic banking industry.
