International Business and Islamic Finance

University of Dundee


City Campus


This is one of the degrees pathways on the MSc International Business group of degrees. This degree pathway allows you to add a focus on Islamic finance. This is an area that we collaborate on with our colleagues at Al-Maktoum College, here in Dundee.

You will choose more specific Islamic finance related modules as part of this degree. These is a broad range of areas to study and may cover areas such as Islamic commercial law, Islamic capital markets, operations of Islamic banks and Islamic financial markets, alongside the nature of risk and its management in Islamic financial institutions.

From your core modules, you will learn to various international business strategies and engage with key areas of international business such as global risk analysis, global financial markets, and international trade. This degree will also provide you with a good grounding in business strategy, operations, finance, and investment in an international context.
