The Kulliyyah of Economics and Management Sciences seeks to prepare students with the necessary knowledge and Islamic values to face the increasingly challenging world.  It offers students the unique opportunity of integrating conventional knowledge with Islamic knowledge in all fields of studies. Established in 1983, the Kulliyyah is now well recognised, having faculty members of eminence in various specialisations.  It is also equipped with the state-of-the-art facilities to promote teaching and learning.

English is the medium of instruction for all programmes offered by the Kulliyyah. Currently, there are four departments offering various programmes, namely the Department of Economics, the Department of Business Administration, the Department of Accounting, and the Department of Finance.

The Department of Finance offers the Master of Science (Finance) which was introduced in 2001. This programme aims to provide students with both practical skills and theoretical knowledge that integrate Islamic concepts and values to enable them to become competent practitioners in both Islamic and conventional finance. The Department’s strengths are in the areas of Islamic banking and finance, applied finance and general finance.
