Introduction to Islamic Finance

Intensive Course (4 Sessions)

May 14 - June 7, 2012
Registration Deadline: April 30, 2012

Takiko Koyama, TDLC

Islamic finance has been growing rapidly in developing and developed countries in recent years. Islamic financial assets have expanded by over 10% annually and represented over 0.5% of global financial assets in 2010. The strong growth is likely to continue in the coming years despite the recent financial crisis. 

Islamic finance is operated free of interest and any ambiguity under the principle of profit-risk-sharing. In contrast to conventional finance, business transactions under Islamic finance require underlying genuine trade and assets.

The Islamic finance market is still below its true potential. Some countries in Africa and Asia are stepping up efforts to capitalize on the growing popularity of Islamic financial service industries. 

With the initiative of the Association of African Distance Learning Center (AADLC) and in partnership with the Global Development Learning Network (GDLN) and the Tokyo Development Learning Center (TDLC), this course has been organized to share fundamentals of Islamic finance with a special focus on policy makers and officials of the financial sector in Africa and Asia.

Advance registration required (first-come-first-served).

Registration Deadline: April 30, 2012
