Online PhD in Islamic  Finance and Economics

EUCLID’s online PhD in Islamic Finance and Economics program was developed at the convergence of EUCLID’s expertise in global governance, international civil service and interfaith studies. Historically, this PhD program was developed after EUCLID signed an agreement with the OIC-affiliated Islamic Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI, now ICCIA) which called for the creation of an MBA in Islamic Finance as a Joint Initiative between EUCLID and ICCI. This PhD builds on EUCLID’s experience and offers a unique opportunity to achieve a terminal degree and the higher level of experience in both Islamic economics and finance.

It is the only online PhD program in this field organized by an international intergovernmental organization and officially used by active civil servants over 4 continents.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”normal”][vc_column_text]

Academic Presentation

EUCLID’s Doctorate in Islamic Finance and Economics represents 90 US credits (120 ECTS) of coursework beyond the Bachelor’s. In practice, students may enter the DIFE with a relevant Master’s degree, complete 30 to 35 US credits of core doctoral courses, followed by the actual writing of the dissertation in 5 phases. The resulting thesis should be a publishable book offering a clear contribution to the field and establishing the author as a subject-matter expert.

Among the suggested areas of focus are:

  • Islamic Banking Sustainable development
  • Islamic Microfinance
  • Alternative Banking Models
