The Kulliyyah of Economics and Management Sciences seeks to prepare students with the necessary knowledge and Islamic values to face the increasingly challenging world.  It offers students the unique opportunity of integrating conventional knowledge with Islamic knowledge in all fields of studies. Established in 1983, the Kulliyyah is now well recognised, having faculty members of eminence in various specialisations.  It is also equipped with the state-of-the-art facilities to promote teaching and learning.

English is the medium of instruction for all programmes offered by the Kulliyyah. Currently, there are four departments offering various programmes, namely the Department of Economics, the Department of Business Administration, the Department of Accounting, and the Department of Finance.

The Department of Accounting offers the Ph.D (Accounting) which combines both conventional and Islamic aspects; to produce experts who are competent in both conventional and Islamic accounting; to encourage further research in accounting which incorporates the Islamic perspective; and to provide experts who are able to formulate Islamically desirable policies in line with the rapidly changing accounting environment. The Department’s greatest strength is in the areas of Islamic Accounting, Management Accounting, Public Sector Accounting, Accounting Education & Ethics, Auditing, Taxation, Financial Reporting and Corporate Governance.
