Associate of Arts in Business Administration (ABA)
> Program Overview
Prophet Muhammad, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: “Indeed the merchants will be resurrected on the Day of Judgement with the wicked, except the one who has taqwa of Allah, who behaves charitably and is truthful.” (Hasan, Jami` at-Tirmidhi 3/12/1210)
The Associate of Arts in Business Administration is a 2-year program that introduces students to the basic tenets in the field of the business administration. The emphasis is put on the development of the students’ communication skills and business decision-making capabilities with ethical reasoning.
Typically, the business administration programs are designed to provide students with comprehensive knowledge of the basic functional areas of business and their interconnection, while also allowing for specialization in a particular area. However, this subject is often taught completely from a secular perspective. Hence, students remain unaware of the rich legacy of the Islamic principles in the fields of accounting, management, finance, entrepreneurship and leadership.
The International Open University offers a rare opportunity to study all the core business disciplines such as accounting, finance, human resource management, strategic management, organizational behavior, business ethics, business law and marketing within an Islamic framework. It provides a combination of erudite Islamic wisdom and contemporary knowledge of a diverse field to produce leaders, visionaries and entrepreneurs. This program will teach students how to excel and contribute positively in today’s competitive world without compromising one’s beliefs and ideals.
