Idea for a student thesis

Gassner's picture

Dear Reader,

Frequently I am being asked about advice on topics for student's thesis. More often than I actually would have ideas at hand.

Now, what I would suggest is two things:

1) In general: Write about a topic useful for Islamic banking rather than the 1001 work about the core principles. Responsible investment, impact investing and the like is good to study and then learn from each other.

2) Specifically, my idea of the idea: Sukuk is a new market. A concern in the first years was that nobody knows how a default would be turning out. Now as we have a small number of default and near default cases there is a possibility of analyzing the outcomes and derive conclusions. A topic with real practical relevance.

All the best,

Michael Saleh Gassner
