The main principles of Islamic Finance are the focus for the fifth Open Lecture in the current programme at Al-Maktoum College of Higher Education.
The internationally-renowned scholar, Professor Mehmet Asutay, Director of Durham University’s Centre for Islamic Economics and Finance, will be speaking on the topic on Thursday, March 17, 2016.
