The Kulliyyah of Economics and Management Sciences (KENMS) was one of the first two faculties established when the International Islamic University Malaysia began operations in 1983.  Our vision is to be a leading faculty of international excellence in teaching, research and consulting services integrating conventional economics, accounting, business and finance including Islamic banking and finance-related areas imbued with values and morality based on revealed sources of knowledge. There are currently four academic departments within the Kulliyyah:
