Description

Do you teach any of aspect of Islamic Business, Management, Accountancy and Finance? Are you planning to in the near future?

If so, then the Islamic Studies: Business, Management, Accountancy and Finance Think-tank is for you!

This workshop is now fully booked, but we can add you to a waiting list should places become available. Email kpettit@brookes.ac.uk for more information.

BMAF recognise that the recent growth in Business-related Islamic Studies is a very exciting development which they wish to strongly support and encourage.

This event follows on from the successful Islamic Studies networking event held in Aston University in May 2010. This time, we would like delegates to bring samples of syllabi, curricula, etc. (either already running, planned, or in development) and be prepared to discuss the opportunities and challenges for developing business-related Islamic Studies provision in the UK.

The event has been made available at no charge for staff of public UK HEIs, although numbers are limited. Places will be allocated on a strict first-come-first-served basis, so please complete the booking form as soon as possible. Staff from private providers of HE are welcome, however a charge may be made.

This think-tank is one of a series of events being held by the HEA’s Islamic Studies Network project and BMAF. Further details about this HEA project is available here:
