ICB offers the following two specializations

Specialization in Islamic Banking

The Islamic banking and finance (IBF) industry has demonstrated a substantial growth since the beginning of the century with the expanding product offerings and emergence of markets such as the Sukuk market. Today, more than 500 IBF institutions are operating worldwide, which are claimed to manage assets worth no less than US$2.5 trillion, while the assets held in IBF institutions were only less than $10 billion in 1985.

As a result of these exciting developments, financiers and bankers working in the field or those who wish to enter the Islamic financial market need to be aware of and trained in the principles, operations, techniques and mechanism of Islamic finance and financial products as well as the dynamics of Islamic financial, capital and money markets.

Our program offers specialization in Islamic Banking with cutting edge research and teaching initiatives offering knowledge and skills necessary to cater to the industry of Islamic Finance.

Specialization in Banking & Finance

As banks change the scope and scale of their operations, previously marginal risks may come to the fore. The risks from complexity may decline, but new risks from concentration can become more prominent. Perhaps most importantly, strategic choices resulting in increased specialization (whether an intentional outcome or not) may have consequences for banksability to generate consistent performance by reducing the diversity of their income streams.

Our program offers specialization in Banking and Finance imparting practice-based learning to individuals, transforming them in to graduates who understand these considerations for bank management, likely risks flowing from specialization, and be instrumental in actions banks might take to mitigate these risks.
