Islamic finance has grown rapidly, with the trend expecting to continue. Today, it has become a global phenomenon, eliciting increasing interest around the world, including from non-Muslim Countries. Islamic finance has grown into a huge industry with total worldwide assets estimated at about US$2 trillion. Islamic finance has the potential to contribute to higher and more inclusive economic growth by increasing access of banking services to underserved populations.

In response to this growing trend, the Islamic Research and Training Institute (IRTI) a member of the Islamic Development Bank Group continue to offer series of massive open online courses (MOOCs) in Islamic finance.

Last year, four MOOCs from two series in Islamic Finance and Banking and Islamic Finance and Capital Markets. More than 17.000 learners from all over the world (182 Countries) attended these MOOCs.

We would like to thank who took our initial four MOOCs in Islamic finance. Now we are pleased to announce new two MOOCs to complete the two series, namely,

  • Understanding Islamic Insurance and Investments (IFB103x) starting February 27, 2017 and
  • Islamic finance and capital markets MOOC (IFCM101x) as self paced that will start on Monday March 13, 2017.
  • Islamic Money Markets and Sukuk (IFCM103x) starting April 24, 2017.

For your information, the cost of the verified certificate is 25$. Please make sure to enroll and to invite your friends.
