Description of the Course - Islam, Ethics and Business

“The principles of Islamic Finance may represent a possible solution to the global financial crisis.” (Osservatore Romano)

Ethics Islam

Harmony of Religions (e-Doctorate) e-Doctorate: Ahimsa Business (Non-Violence)

“To each of you We prescribed a law and a method. Had Allah willed, He would have made you one nation united in religion, but He intended to test you in what He has given you; so race to all that is good.” Holy Quran (5:48).

In this subject; we will discuss Islam and main features of Islamic Countries from the viewpoint of intercultural negotiation.

It is crucial to note that this subject has been written with a maximum and absolute respect for this religion, which has 1,570 million followers around the world.

After the 11-S, the international businessman wishing to do business with Muslim Countries needs a closer approach to Islam and its culture as a premise to establish trusting relationships to develop business in the long-term. This is the main objective of this subject: to introduce the students to Islam and this interesting culture and therefore on their way of doing business.

  1. Muslim Population: 1.57 billion people (23% of the world's population)
  2. Only 15% of Muslims are Arabs (Middle East)
  3. 62% of the World's Muslim population lives in Asia and 20% in the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa)
  4. 300 million Muslims live in countries where Islam is not the majority religion: China, India, or Russia.

We also aim to break the negative topic that many Westerners have against Islam.
