Prophet Muhammad, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: “Indeed the merchants will be resurrected on the Day of Judgment with the wicked, except the one who has taqwa of Allah, who behaves charitably, and is truthful.” (Hasan, Jami` at-Tirmidhi 3/12/1210)

Typically, the business administration programs are designed to provide students with comprehensive knowledge about 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. Consequently, 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 the 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 in 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 their Islamic beliefs and ideals.

“And, [O Muhammad], you are not [engaged] in any matter or recite any of the Qur’an and you [people] do not do any deed except that We are witness over you when you are involved in it.” (Qur’an, 10:61)
