Islamic Corporate Finance

This course aims to tie together many of the important ideas in modern corporate finance and explores how these could be presented from an Islamic perspective. Courses in corporate finance in universities across the globe form part of Masters’ programs in business administration, finance and economics. Invariably, corporate finance figures in their curriculum as a core course that is taught during the first or second term. In this course we focus on the ideas and concepts that form part of a core course in corporate finance. 

In order to make it simple for an instructor attuned to teaching corporate finance at Business Schools, we follow a structure similar to most standard textbooks on the subject. While the coverage in some of the texts may be broader, this course attempts to deal with all the major ideas and concepts, keeping in mind the latest contribution of Islamic scholars to the field. Learning corporate finance from an Islamic perspective is indeed quite challenging for the simple reason that there is a dearth of literature on the concepts and issues covered therein. There is no published text as yet dealing with this subject from an Islamic perspective and the course relies mostly on rare published articles and papers in various journals in order to cull together some relevant ideas and concepts. Some of the ideas and concepts are entirely original, and are being presented for the first time by the author.

We have opted for brevity wherever we find that the materials presented in conventional textbooks are in the nature of tools of analysis, theories that do not need any adaptation in the light of Islamic principles, numerical examples and empirical evidence. In order to avoid duplication, we advise the students to follow the relevant contents from the mainstream textbooks. Wherever ideas and concepts presented require review, comments and modification in the light of Islamic principles, we have attempted to elaborate and accommodate available thoughts in the matter in this course.
