This research attempts to not only study the status quo of preparing theses at Iranian universities in the fields of Islamic banking and economy, but also explore the existing challenges in this area offer solutions to them. To this end, this study investigates a sample of theses defended at the University of Tehran, Shahid Beheshti University, Allameh Tabataba'i University, Imam Sadiq University, Tarbiat Modarres University, Mofid University, Al-Zahra University and the University of Economic Sciences. The findings of the research which have been obtained through the methods of library research and content analysis reveal that a significant number of defended theses focused on conventional economy. In the best-case scenarios, they have applied those areas on Iran’s economy. Thus, theses in which the concepts and applications of Islamic banking and economy are directly explored are few and far between. Furthermore, there appears to be a number of specific challenges and factors leading to the poor research in the area of Islamic banking and economy, which cannot be ignored. The findings of this research offer clear-cut solutions to reform the system of research in Islamic banking and economy.
