This programme, run in partnership with Newcastle Law School, aims to equip you with a good general understanding of conventional financial theory and knowledge of the basic legal tools employed in financial regulation. In addition, it provides an introduction to Islamic finance which uses a different model for banking and finance that eliminates many of the practices that appear to have contributed to the recent banking crisis.
You take compulsory modules that equip you with a good understanding of the conventional finance industry, as well as the main principles and practices of Islamic finance.
The topic for your dissertation is normally based on an interest you have developed during the course and may have an Islamic finance or a conventional finance focus.
