The aim of this programme is to offer graduates of different disciplines an opportunity to acquire knowledge and practice in the broad field of research and innovation in halal industry.
The programme is by research, hence the main requirement for graduation is to prepare a thesis that is of acceptable standard to the examiners. However, during their study, students are also required to undergo certain courses to develop their knowledge and skills in areas that are important for the understanding of the halal industry.
Minimum one year (two semesters) and maximum three years (six semesters) for international students
Students will be enrolled on a remote candidature basis, which requires minimal residence in Malaysia. In this mode, students are required to report to IIUM Campus for only three weeks in each academic year. (This requirement is waived as long as the COVID-19 travel restrictions are in place).
The courses of the programmes carry no credit hours since the main requirement for obtaining the degree is the fulfilment of the thesis requirement.
In terms of course delivery, teaching will be delivered online with a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous components.
For thesis preparation, a supervisor will be assigned by INHART to each student and students will meet their supervisors through video conferencing to plan and discuss their research and thesis writing.
