With South East Asia, the Middle East and Far East being the next powerhouses of future economies, the Investment Banking and Islamic Finance MSc offers a qualification specifically designed to prepare graduates for a career in this rapidly evolving area.

The programme provides participants with the opportunity to develop and demonstrate their understanding of both the theory and practical applications of modern finance both in conventional (‘Western’) and Islamic jurisdictions.

Delivered jointly by the internationally recognised ICMA Centre at Henley Business School in Malaysia and the global university in Islamic finance, INCEIF, the course offers a specialist Master’s programme, leading to professional qualification credits and a strong and detailed foundation in both Western and Islamic banking.

The Investment Banking and Islamic Finance MSc is a 12 month programme with the opportunity to study in Kuala Lumpur with INCEIF.

  • Securities, Futures and Options
  • Fixed Income and Equity Investments
  • Financial Markets
  • The Principles of Islamic Commercial Jurisprudence and Nominate Contracts
  • Islamic Capital Markets

There is a growing demand from financial institutions worldwide for specialist professionals trained in
the techniques of Islamic finance.
We expect graduates will pursue rewarding careers with investment banks in a diverse range of fields, including corporate and project finance, specialist structured products and derivatives, trade finance, sales and trading.

In addition, they will be well-qualified to join specialist Islamic financial institutions, regulatory agencies, investment managers, consultancies and the finance divisions of multinational corporations.
