3RD ISLAMIC FINANCE, BANKING & BUSINESS ETHICS GLOBAL CONFERENCE

GLOBALISING RISK SHARING ISLAMIC FINANCE: CHALLENGES, INNOVATION AND LEADERSHIP 

2-3 May 2018 at Suleman Dawood School of Business, Lahore University of Management Sciences, Pakistan 
 

 

 

                                                                                                                                                                     

 

The Islamic finance sector has experienced exponential growth in the last few decades. Islamic banking institutions are now established in over 50 countries and account for more than 15% of the financial landscape in most of these countries. The success of the Islamic financial industry is all the more evident since it has come during a period when the conventional financial industry was experiencing a crisis. From the Olympic village in London to Burj Khalifa in Dubai, shariah compliant investments are making inroads on a global scale. The global Islamic financial assets stand at $2 trillion with Pakistan and Malaysia at the forefront. With nearly 1/5th of the banking sector in the two countries reliant on the Islamic financial services with double digit annual growth, the potential of Islamic financial services is huge.

 

Suleman Dawood School of Business (SDSB) at Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) recognizes that this incredible potential for growth has its challenges. SDSB is paving the way for the development of Islamic finance in the country by offering specialized courses in this area with the establishment of a dedicated Centre for Islamic Finance (CIF) to further scholarship in Islamic Finance. Undergraduate and graduate courses are being offered in Islamic Banking and Finance, Accounting for Islamic Financial Institutions, Islamic Management and Ethics, and Islamic Risk Management.


In collaboration with IBA (Karachi) and INCEIF (Malaysia), SDSB is now organizing a joint 3rd Islamic Finance, Banking and Business Ethics Global (IFBBE) Conference. The conference dates are set to May 2018 and will take place at our purpose-built campus in Lahore, Pakistan. This conference seeks to bring together scholars and professionals engaged in research (both practical and academic) on the growth and development of Islamic Finance to present their research papers/ideas to a broader audience.
 

All submissions will be reviewed based on originality, rigor, and relevance to the conference theme. All accepted manuscripts will be presented at the conference.
