The positive convergence of ethical and Islamic finance, coupled with the demand from a wide range of industry stakeholders keen to develop their knowledge and understanding in these overlapping areas, has led the Ethical Finance Hub to engage with the UKIFC to launch a unique and flexible executive education summer course offering in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Despite the remarkable recent growth of ethical and Islamic finance there remain few academic or professional courses that provide practically-focused pragmatic training.
The 3 day “Islamic Finance – An Ethical Alternative”, an intensive practical Course designed and developed by the UKIFC, will begin with a comprehensive introduction to Islamic finance, its ethical foundations, core structures, and creation of Islamic banking products. It will then offer practical guidance in creating enabling regulatory frameworks, particularly within a secular context, before exploring the nuances of Shariah compliant asset management. The Course concludes with a session focused on the legal, mechanics and trends within Islamic finance real estate transactions.
The course will take place at Edinburgh Business School, Heriot-Watt University Monday 25th June 2018 – Wednesday 27th June 2018. with the 2 day “Ethical Finance and Investment Paradigm” takes place over the following two days.
