BIBF signs MoU for Islamic Banking MBA with University of Bolton (UK)

August 4, 2014

BIBF signed an MoU with the University of Bolton (UK) to develop an MBA in Islamic Banking. As per the MoU, which was signed in the UK, BIBF will act as lead content provider for the Islamic Finance subjects and will supervise all dissertations, while the University of Bolton faculty will deliver the core MBA subjects.

Graduates of BIBF's Islamic Finance programmes will be eligible for exemptions from some of the subjects, providing them with a shortened pathway to obtain an MBA with a specialisation in Islamic Finance.

"The initiative further bolsters our position as the global content provider of choice for Islamic Finance. We expect the new programme to become an attractive means for students globally to develop expertise in Islamic Finance, and for our graduates to further their studies in the UK," BIBF Director Ms Solveig Nicklos said at the signing.

According to a recent BIBF research paper, the Islamic financial sector, which in 2012 had an overall asset valuation of more than 1,350 billion dollars globally, is expected to create anywhere from 250,000 to one million professional Islamic finance jobs worldwide by 2020.
