Welcome to the Institute of Islamic Banking (IIB), currently a young but timely established and dynamic Institute that focuses on producing scholars in the nascent area of Islamic Banking and Finance. Crisis after crisis in the Western capitalist economic system, the loss in business and jobs, and the hardships being faced by common people due to corporate profiteering has forced many people in the Western world and also in the Islamic world to look for viable alternatives. Islamic Banking and Finance presents such a model with a human focus rather than purely commercial perspective.
The mission of IIB is to become a leading source of education in Islamic Banking, and produce scholars pertaining to intellectual wisdom and foresight in this area. The focus of the Institute is to develop research skills, independent thinking and capability to solve the issues related to the Islamic mode of banking and finance among the students. The knowledge is inculcated among the students blending theory and Shariah based financial practices.
The IIB is offering postgraduate and graduate degrees in Islamic Banking and Finance. This is the pioneer institute in launching PhD program in Islamic Banking and Finance in the city of Lahore. Our graduates are well placed in reputed national and international organizations.
The Institute holds regular international conferences on Islamic Banking and Finance to develop a strong research culture. Renowned national and international speakers participate in these conferences. The IIB also publishes annual journal titled “Islamic Banking and Finance Review” with contributions from reputed scholars of the Muslim world.
The highly qualified and competent faculty at IIB aims to fill the gap in human resource development in the area of Islamic Banking and Finance.
We look forward to seeing you at the most prestigious institute, the IIB at the University of Management and Technology.
