General Management Pathway
The General Management pathway will give you the opportunity to build a general focus or a finance concentration through your choice of electives. Although this programme is delivered in Dubai, it may be possible to study Cass's electives on-campus in London.
Islamic Finance Pathway
The Islamic Finance Stream is tailored to the needs of the Middle East and surrounding regions. The Cass Executive MBA in Dubai is the first top-ranked course in the world to offer a specialised Islamic Finance Stream.
This stream is aimed at Fund Managers, Investment Consultants and Advisors, as well as those in a wide range of professions in banking or in the financial services sector who take a close interest in Islamic Finance.
It will equip you with the main tenets of Sharia-compliant financial dealings, demonstrating Islamic Finance in a holistic fashion and in the context of the modern and global financial system, of which it is an increasingly important part.
Demand for Sharia-compliant finance has rocketed in recent years. There are now an estimated 270 Islamic banks operating globally, with total assets exceeding $265 billion. This growth has highlighted new challenges for the sector in terms of applying appropriate regulatory and legal infrastructures, and meeting the need for financial and legal expertise.
If you choose to do the Islamic Finance Stream, you will be required to do all the three Islamic Finance modules.
Please note that our programmes are continually being developed to reflect emerging issues and changing business needs. The list of electives is therefore indicative and subject to sufficient demand. In addition, overseas electives will incur additional costs.
