The Top Five University Islamic Banks in the U.S.

MUSLIMCREED More and more students are turning to Islamic banking as a source of higher education. This means that universities are starting to offer courses in Islamic banking and finance to meet the demand for qualified workers who can perform sharia-compliant transactions. In this article, we’ll take a look at the top five university Islamic banks in the U.S. (in alphabetical order).

North Carolina State University

Ranked as one of the top universities in America, North Carolina State University is home to over 40 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The university offers a state-of-the-art research park that attracts businesses from all over the world. 

With so many opportunities for students, it's not surprising that NCSU ranks among the top five universities with Islamic Banking Programs. In fact, it was ranked number one for 2015 by The Muslim World League Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (WEMLEO). 

What makes this ranking even more impressive is that there are only two universities on the list that offer both Islamic banking and Sharia-compliant finance majors: North Carolina State University and Auburn University.
