Course Essentials

Dundee has a comprehensive and flexible suite of Honours economics courses offering both MA and BSc options in three main pathways

  • Economics
  • Financial Economics
  • Business Economics with Marketing

Each of these pathways can be undertaken on its own as Single Honours or with one of the range of subjects set out below as Joint Honours.

The Economics MA and BSc courses focus specifically on the macroeconomic challenges of national, regional and global economies together with the microeconomic behaviour of people and businesses. An economics degree is an excellent foundation for your career as an economist but also offers scope to pursue a diverse range of high-earning opportunities.

The Financial Economics courses combine core economic skills with current and fast-changing theories around financial markets. They give you the knowledge and techniques you need for more specialized quantitatively orientated careers in financial economics, research and forecasting or a future in business management, finance, banking and accountancy.

Through our Business Economics with Marketing courses you’ll develop your knowledge of the theory, analysis and application of how economic considerations shape our global business world.  You’ll understand the integral role of marketing in today’s multi-channel environment and how marketing fits into a wider organisational context. The contemporary focus of the course prepares you for a future in business or marketing

Scotland was the birthplace of modern economics but the profession is now truly international. Our staff hold qualifications from major universities around the world, publish research in leading international journals and regularly present work at international conferences. All three pathways focus on applied economics research so our modules are closely linked to contemporary economics, finance and business issues. This topicality enables you to choose a combination of subjects that fits your ambitions in a fast-changing world.

All economics students will be welcomed to our Business Society which arranges an event calendar, annual ball and career presentations from institutions such as the Government Economic Service, Scottish Executive, Bank of England etc.
