In general, the advocates and practitioners of conventional banking and finance not only able to properly differentiate between the differences exist between the conventional and Islamic banking but also flourishes the same to the masses through electronic and print media which turns into overwhelming misconceptions among the general public about Islamic banking and finance. To address this challenge faced by the contemporary Islamic banking industry, the importance of incorporating pedagogical methods in teaching have become more importance than incorporating the same in any other course. Through learning innovation techniques, we at IoBM, strive to develop such skill set amongst students so that they themselves become innovators to provide the new and improved solutions to meet the challenges faced by the Islamic banking and finance industry not only in Pakistan but also worldwide.

Study also includes evaluation of Loan financing for solar PV through bank. Solar Photovoltaic Systems can be classified as grid-connected or utility-interactive systems and stand-alone systems.

Design and Pricing of Treasury STRIPs (Separately Tradable Registered Interest and Principle Securities) in Pakistan   Zarai Taraqiyati Bank Ltd (ZTBL) In this project, we designed the pricing of Separate Trading of Registered Interest and Principal Securities (STRIPS) for Pakistan’s financial market. We evaluated the disintegration of government coupon bond i.e. PIB up to the maturity of 10 years into zero coupon/discounted bond using bootstrapping methodology. The risk less profit or arbitrage opportunity is there because of discounting of the coupon on prevailing market rate, instead of changing the spot rate, as dictated by term structure of interest rate. The no-arbitrage assumption is used for finding out the price by interpolating the spot rate that is used to value the Treasury STRIPS. [Link]
Do Active Managed Equity Mutual Funds Add Value? – The case of Conventional & Islamic Equity Mutual Funds in Pakistan

 

New Jubilee Life Insurance This paper presents the performance of MFs on an aggregate and individual MF using Sharpe, Treynor and Jensen Alpha, Fama French 3 Factor model, Carhart 4 Factor Model and Henriksson model. Cross-comparison of the performance of Islamic versus conventional MFs is also presented. The sample comprises of the monthly performance of 42 MFs with three conventional and Islamic MFs for the past one decade i.e. from 2008 to 2018. Findings suggest that contrary to the theoretical notion of informational inefficient equity markets in developing countries; actively managed MFs (both conventional and shari’ah compliant) in Pakistan ‘do not add value’. Furthermore, the analysis presented in this paper asserts that MFs in Pakistan are geared towards providing diversification benefit, instead of outperforming the market benchmark through active fund management. [Link]
The business case for Consumer Lending Product of Household Solar PV Systems Standard Chartered Bank Limited This paper aims to find an optimal eco system solution of Solar PV System financing by banks for households in Pakistan that would benefit both banks and households in the long term. LCOE of all the districts of Pakistan have been calculated to find which districts of Pakistan can avail the most benefit from the Solar PV electricity. Keeping in view the conservative Bank setting, it presents a consumer-lending product for Solar PV System for both secured and unsecured portfolio. [Link]

My learning innovation are primarily motivated by creating a club culture & blended learning to drive engagement typically suited to the preferences of the so called ‘Millennials’. I aspire to bring in technological platforms such as Youtube, Whatsapp, Slido & Dropbox in an attempt to generate student interest.

IoBM Investor Club

IoBM Investment Club – is an initiative to promote financial literacy and awareness among the students. It was commenced by a small group of like-minded students of Financial Institution course to share investment insights and venues on a WhatsApp group. The group is now a thriving platform of over 150 members from all disciplines actively sharing equity valuations, investment picks, macroeconomic indicators and economic outlook. The group is now holding regular members’ meetings to learn from each other and turn ‘Learners in to Investors’

Course :Financial Institutions

Greater engagement following inspired by the idea of Club Learning to form an Investment Club connected through a Whatsapp group for IoBM students, sharing investments related information, stock picks, fundamental and technical analysis on equity investment. Moreover macroeconomic indicators such as trade and current account deficits, inflation outlook and GDP growth expectation are also shared. Thus the idea is to make the perceivably dry body of knowledge more interesting and relatable.

Course : Project Appraisal

Students are pushed to follow the largest Entrepreneurial Reality Show called ‘Shark Tank’ which offer a lot of real world insights on Business Valuation, Risk assessment, Cost of Capital, Cashflow Projection and Capital structure.

The students are asked to study and decipher the underlying valuation methodology that the illustrious Panel adapt to raise offers to nascent entrepreneurs pitch in no time. Again

General Innovations

Introduction of Youtube Lectures to integrate blended learning suited to the mindset of the Millineals.

Class Presentations – Grade weight 10%

Class presentation aims to relate the course objectives with the real world, by soliciting students to present relevant news and development from the real world.

Example Presentations

Financial Institutions

  • Drivers, Causes and Implication of USD 22 Bn Penalty on HBL Balance Sheet.
  • The rise and Fall of the BCCI – governance debacle or political conspiracy.
  • The cases of block chain based crowd funding through Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs)
  • Initial Public offerings of equity and Bond Issues – e.g. Pearl Continental and K.Electric Sukuks, Roshan Packages, Loads and Mughal Steels.

Project Appraisal

  • Government Large Scale Projects Feasibility Presentation such as
  • Orange Line Train Project Feasibility (PC-1)
  • Aforestation project KPK Government (Plantation of 1 Bn Trees) socio-economic feasibility analysis.
  • Lalpir Solar Power Generation (300 MW) feasibility analysis.

Increased Rigour in Class Projects Grade Weight 20%

Two staged submission of class projects has been introduced.

Stage 1: is called ‘formative submission‘ – where student submits the project 2 weeks before the final deadline and describe it in an office meeting. Feedback for improvement/ refinement / correction is shared with the student to set the expectations for a superior grade. At this point,  I entice the student to meet my expectations on the rigour and details of the work and score a superlative grade in reward.

Stage 2: is ‘summative submission’ wherein all the group members are expected to know everything about the project and should be able explain the findings (to avoid the usual ‘this was not my part of the work’ excuse) , enables team learning and alleviates free-riders syndrome prevalent in group submissions.

Though this method requires a lot of office counselling – but has improved the students motivation to do real work to score high – instead settling for less with an inferior work. Besides it develops the much emphasised student engagement.

  • Simulation Software + Executive workbook:
    As an idea which came out of a recent (May 2018) 5-day Strategic Planning & Innovation consultative session with the top and middle management of a conglomerate Jaffer Brothers, the level 4 program on Strategic Management at IoBM will be reconfigured on a ‘learning by doing’ platform where each student now works throughout the semester (a class room eco system of experiential learning) on a hands-on project of the entire process from vision/mission to decision, implementation and control.

 

  • A new, MBA level-6 course, ‘Marketing Strategies & Value innovation’
    was conceived and structured around Design Thinking delivered through a class room Eco system of experiential learning woven throughout the semester:

 

  • Brief 30 minutes lecture-discussion around a design concept, followed by its application in a hands on workshop format, followed by a week of field research followed by selected presentations the following week.
  • Carefully selected case studies to further reinforce the framework.

 

 

 

Final Deliverable: A publishable researched case study of a business innovation (value, profit and people) of a real business problem per group of students. Encouraging results are being achieved.

Some nameless learners feedback:

  1. “The materials and teaching methodology is explicitly excellent which has increased the knowledge and experience in terms of experiential learning”.
  2. “This knowledge can be implemented very well in practical life”.
  3. “Learned new things in a practical way”.
  4. “It was a distinct course as compared to other marketing courses”.
  5. “Teachers’ style of teaching always motivated me to come in class and participate”.

 

  • Teaching pricing models in Marketing
    Prices are often set to satisfy demand or to reflect the ‘value’ consumers are willing to pay for a product or service. Some people say it is unethical to sell a small bottle of water for Rs. 30, or a pair of high end joggers for Rs. 5,000 or a ticket for a dinner ball at the French beach in Karachi for Rs. 30,000.Learners are required to take a position:
    A: Prices should reflect the value that consumers are willing to pay. Verses
    B:
    Prices should primarily reflect the cost involved in making the product or service.

The class breaks up in two groups for 40 minutes. Each group takes a position A or B. If an agreement cannot be reached in 5 minutes, the instructor will toss a coin. Each group jointly AND individually prepare their position, using, if necessary, the principles of pricing out of the text book that they have reviewed earlier.

When the class reassembles, some members of each group speak alternatively for 3 to 5 mins. After these persons have delivered their arguments, the subject will be open to the floor for discussion, questions/answers. There will be an open house vote as to which group prevailed and convinced the house.

The instructor concludes with a mini 15 minutes prepared lecture highlighting the key learning points that emerged from the exercise.

 

  • Judicious and ‘Alert’ use for learning outcomes of ‘Good Job’ and ‘Cheer Up’ cards given for learners inputs and for bringing back the detached.

  • Book Reading and Book Review writing

In my teaching experience I have observed that students has developed the habit to read PowerPoint slides and skip the text book reading. Which leads them to imprecise theoretical concepts and short term learning of the subject. To encourage them for reading and to develop a reading culture, I introduced “book reading” as a part of course project.

Students read different books (related to management) and wrote a review of the book.

Students also gave presentations and told their fellow students how those books were related to management and how they can use management concepts in their daily life routine.

They read following books

  1. 7 Habits of highly effective people  by Stephen Covey
  2. The goal by Eliyahu M. Goldratt
