Elshaarani Centre for Islamic Business and Finance

Through the EIBF, we will educate the next generation of Islamic economists and business leaders – both nationally and internationally. 


The EIBF is a new and exciting centre, which offers postgraduate, PhD, executive and professional programmes at the highest international standards. The centre allows us to investigate how mainstream financial institutions can learn from Islamic financial practices in their recovery from and avoidance of the next global economic crisis.

As an integral part of Aston Business School, one of the UK's top Business Schools, the EIBF Centre is committed to creating and transferring knowledge that enables, innovates and inspires, as well as to support and influence organisations and their leaders; contributing positively and substantially to society - regionally, nationally and internationally.
