Program Structure

In your first year of study you will register for common University required and Kulliyyah required courses. These courses are designed to develop your worldview of the University’s philosophy and mission, the Kulliyyahs objectives, and your foundational skills for economics. The courses you will study at this stage relate to Islamic worldview, co-curricular activities, soft skills and principle courses in economics, finance, management, accounting and information technology. At the conclusion of your first year, you will be ready to enter the department after having passed two principle economic courses; micro and macro.

From the second year onwards, you will progressively take intermediate and advanced courses leading to your specialization in year four. These courses will develop your in-depth understanding of the knowledge, techniques, tools and resources appropriate for economics and the related areas.
