Why did they choose the Executive Master ‘‘Principles and Practices of Islamic Finance’’ at Université Paris-Dauphine?



Anas Jaffal


I graduated with honors from the Islamic Finance Executive Masters. It was an amazing year with a very rich content and world class speakers. All the things I learned during my masters help me in performing my day to day activity and grow in the Islamic Finance Industry. I highly recommend the masters to all people interested in this high potential industry.




For the past 9 years, I have been employed by one of the top banks in Europe, BNP Paribas, three of which have been in the middle-east and six years in headquarters in Paris. During my tenor at BNP Paribas I held positions in different departments: structured derivatives; asset and liability management and treasury; and trade finance and supply chain management solutions.

Dauphine’s Executive Master in Islamic Finance represented a gateway from me to shift from one of the most sophisticated financial world of exotic derivatives to the core of real economy, i.e. real projects’ financing, trade and supply chain management. I have been involved in structuring various complex deals and transactions in Islamic Finance across the GCC countries during my time with BNP Paribas in Bahrain.


Today, the pros and the resilience of the industry are well known worldwide and the needs are continuous and rising. This I the reason why the Dauphine’s syllabus is a master piece designed specifically to arm the future alumni to act and foster the Islamic industry all over the world. Today I am heading to the very enthusiastic entrepreneurship route, but I have the assurance that I will always carry and rely on a very solid background thanks to my very fruitful journey with the Executive master in Islamic finance team.

I am Houssem Eddine BEDOUI, a Telecom SudParis engineer; I started my professional experience as a management and strategy consultant in Europe. My interest in Islamic finance has increased with AIDIMM association. The Executive Master “Theories and Practices of Islamic Finance” allowed me to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of the industry with highly experienced, dynamic professors who know engage students. The modules were really diversified from theory (Fiqh rules) to Capital Market and financial innovation, which is advantageous for my current position as Senior Financial Product Development Specialist in The Islamic Development Bank. Moreover, the Master was highly competitive with skillful and competent students from different backgrounds, and that created an exciting and thought-provoking environment. Finally, the master allowed me to follow with a PhD program in Economics in “Ecole Normale Superieure”.

Associate Cross Asset Structuring
Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank

During my last year of engineering school I decided to take in parallel the Executive Master Principles and Practice of Islamic Finance. I had two key objectives in mind: to get an in depth understanding of Islamic Finance concept thanks to the professional and highly qualified professors and to gain the skills to access the Islamic Finance market.
The Executive Master is really challenging because it allows to understand and to look to Islamic Finance from different points of view, from Fiqh rules to Capital Market innovation, not forgetting the Legal and Regulatory aspect. This program gives the whole picture of the subject but also it deals with the Islamic Finance stakes based on the reality of the current market practice and ways of improving its efficiency.
After my Master, I worked with the Delta One Trading desk at Societe Generale Corporate and Investment Banking and the Executive Master gave me the opportunity to move into their Islamic Finance Structuring Team.
Completing this Executive Master helped me not only to have the fundamentals but also to learn experience with practical issues that then I faced in my working life on daily basis.
The Executive Master opened doors to new friendships and relationships born in a team spirit atmosphere. I would like to thank the Executive Master “Principles and Practice of Islamic Finance” to give me the chance to meet competent people and to expand my career horizons.
Since August 2013, I joined the team of the Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank
