Postgraduate Diploma in Islamic Banking and Finance(Level 7)


* Equivalent level. See Qualifications Can Cross Boundaries for a comparison of the UK and European Qualifications Frameworks.

Whilst the principles underpinning Islamic Finance have existed for hundreds of years, the modern industry did not start to develop until 1975 with the establishment of the Islamic Development Bank. It has grown rapidly – in 2014 alone, the global market (measured by assets) grew by 12% to $2 trillion.

As Islamic Finance evolves to be more competitive and increasingly sophisticated, demand for Islamic Finance talent is set to grow. LSLS is keen to contribute to the expansion and enrichment of Islamic Finance knowledge, skills and understanding and as such, we have developed a postgraduate-level Diploma in Islamic Banking and Finance.
