Personal profile


Kasim has research, teaching and leadership experience in higher education spanning more than twenty five years. He is currently Director of MBA Programmes and Associate Professor in Business Management at Coventry University; is a visiting fellow at Saἲd Business School, University of Oxford where he was member of Kellogg College, Oxford and is Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA). Kasim has an international mindset to his research and teaching, evidenced through his work experience at the universities of Oxford (2009-present), Manchester (2005-2010), Coventry (2011-present), Lincoln (1997-1999) and Hull (1993-1997), in the UK and The British University in Dubai (2005-2009), The American University in Dubai (2003) and UAE University (1999-2005), in the United Arab Emirates.

During his recent decade of work for Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, Kasim was Research Fellow in Major Programme Management (2009-2010) and has taught and mentored PGT Executive Education delegates in Major Programme Management from 2012 to the present as well as having serviced a number of international government contracts (2010-2014) in research and training programmes focussed on economic diversification away from a reliance on their energy industries. These included Brunei and other South East Asian economies and a number of Arab Gulf states. Kasim also worked for an international non-governmental organisation as Senior Policy Advisor and Head of Research and Development (2012-2015) where he developed L6 and L7 training programmes in management and leadership, accredited by the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) and designed and taught Research Methods courses for international development actors. He is also on the Board of Trustees for two international charities.

Kasim holds PhD and BEng(Hons.) degrees from the University of Hull and a Master’s degree in Islamic Studies (MAIS with Merit) from the University of Wales' department of Theology and Religious Studies. He has developed specialist research on the Islamic economy at Oxford, focussed on areas including global Halal markets and Waqf (endowments); work that informs the policy and practice of government ministries and public-private partnerships, particularly in trade, development and social responsibility across the Muslim world generally and in the Middle East and SE Asia regions in particular. Kasim's research interests in the Islamic economy and international development, have led most recently to published output on the Halal food sector (British Food Journal), on sectoral evaluation across the Islamic economy (Journal of Islamic Marketing) and on creating a contextual framework for the Islamic diaspora (Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs).

Kasim is an award-winning author, receiving the Outstanding Paper Award at the Emerald Literati Network Awards for Excellence in 2013 for his article on leadership and organisational commitment. He has published over one hundred peer-reviewed journal papers and other articles. He is on the Editorial Advisory Board for the International Journal of Islamic and Middle Eastern Finance and Management, published by Emerald and associate editor and reviewer for a number of journals, including the International Journal of Project Management. His published works on developing Muslim nations and the reputational effect of managing large-scale events, particularly on Olympic games’ host cities, has influenced views on urban regeneration, legacy and the importance of sustainable environments, receiving global mainstream coverage, principally during the London 2012 Olympic Games, with respect to the historic absence of a Muslim world host city.
