Overview

Programme Code: NT56

Our 4-year programme provides students with a strong grounding in international management, specialist knowledge of business and management in the Middle East and North Africa and competence in a Middle Eastern language. Students take courses in accounting, finance, managerial economics, marketing, corporate governance, research methods and international business strategy, together with specialist courses that draw on SOAS’s knowledge of management and finance in the Middle East and North Africa. In addition, students take three full-unit modules in a Middle Eastern Language. During their time at SOAS students have the opportunity to take approved courses from other SOAS departments, such as Law, Politics, Economics and Languages and Cultures of the Near and Middle East and Africa, providing a rich inter-disciplinary learning environment.

The programme aims to provide students with a conceptual understanding of core principles of international management and finance, the ability to apply this knowledge to real issues facing business and other organisations that operate in the Middle East or North Africa or deal with these economies, and competence in a Middle Eastern language.

Employment

Graduates will have a firm grasp of international management disciplines that should place them in a good position to pursue a career in business, banking, consulting, media and other industries, especially in companies or organisations that operate in, or do business with the Middle East and North Africa. Students who attain a first or upper second will be well-placed to embark on postgraduate study. DeFiMS maintains close links with employers in the United Kingdom, its focus regions including the Middle East, North Africa and elsewhere. We expect that many of our graduates will move into banking, consulting, media, and other industries.

A Student's Perspective

Part of the reason I chose SOAS over others is because it offered the Islamic Banking and Finance elective module. This is a one-of-a-kind class and an interesting subject that only SOAS offers. My hope is that the knowledge attained in this class will make me more suited for international corporate jobs that deal with the states that are a part of the Gulf Cooperation Council.
