    Firstly we need to stop all the idiots posting stupid messages. It a thread opened to discuss the new centre and islamic banking, not for some idiots who have nothing to say except for rubbish.

    So can we discuss this in a mature way. I would like to ask when they are going tot start there degree programs?

    I wouldn't.
    Tell me what the differences are, or don't quote me and waste my time.

    I don't think Aston will be known as that tbh, look how multicultural Birmingham is.
    Look at how much of a dump it is too, cant wait to move away.

    You're so ignorant it's unbelievable. Most people these days have heard of Islamic finance. There are loads of courses you can do on it. It's basically essential understanding for any trade between Britain and countries in the middle east, Africa, and Asia. There are islamic banks set up in lots of countries the world over now.

    1) halal food is present because there are a number of Muslim students at Aston. When you're running a business, you want to target as many people as possible. Since halal food won't make a difference (as far as I am aware anyway)to non-Muslims, but does to Muslims, you may as well have it during food production to gain the potential of extra customers.

    2) Its also catered to a number or other religions. As are other universities.

    3) A Muslim course? A university subject cannot be a religion. Is there a Christian course or a Hindu course? The course contains an aspect of the Islamic religion which teaches Islamic finance. Otherwise it would just be any other financial course.

    Is it really going to make any sort of impact? While it may be of interest from an academic point of view, I see little point in actually studying it at university as an undergraduate. (Possibly offer it as an MSc, seeing as it is quite specialised and narrows your options from say a general BSc Finance course.)

    Aston will be fiine. I don't think it's gonna turn completely Muslim if that's what you mean.

    it's basic supply and demand.

    Since more institutions are offering Islamic finance services, there is more demand in the financial services for this.
