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.

Scottish and EU students: Fees for September 2019 entry will be confirmed by the Scottish Government in early 2019.
Rest of UK students: Fees for September 2019 entry are subject to confirmation by the UK Government and will be published when confirmed.
Overseas students (non-EU): £16,450 per year of study

Teaching and Assessment

Our approach introduces you to modern analytical and problem solving skills important to professional economists and the wider business community. You will learn from experts in their fields who will teach you about contemporary economic issues from an applied perspective.

How you will be taught
In Levels 1 and 2 teaching is initially through a combination of lectures and tutorials. These continue in Levels 3 and 4, supplemented by workshops and computer laboratory sessions. Increasingly you will be required to undertake directed independent study to broaden and deepen your understanding of the issues covered in your courses.

An Honours degree normally takes four years, full time. You study Levels 1-4, as described below. You can study for most of our Honours degrees in three years if you have the required grades and subjects as listed in the Entry Requirements section. This will reduce your study time by a year enabling you to start working and earning earlier.

How you will be assessed
Essays, problem-based exercises, case studies, presentations and group projects all play a role in assessment and together with exam results, provide the basis for your final grade.

What you will study
Your programme in the first and second years introduces you to basic economic concepts and models and provides you with the opportunity to apply these to a range of contemporary problems. The syllabus in Years 1 and 2 is common to all economics degrees. Thereafter, in third and fourth years, you may continue to study for a mainstream degree in Economics or pursue a more specialised programme in either Financial Economics or Business Economics with Marketing. These may be combined in a joint Honours degree with a wide range of subjects from the arts and social sciences.

Career Opportunities

Some of our graduates are working as professional economists; others with the UK Government Economic Service or Scottish Government. Others are in finance or general management, working for banking multinationals, major consultancies and marketing agencies.

At Dundee you’ll be networking with other students from around the world – opening up global possibilities – and be invited to sessions where you can talk to employers about career opportunities.

Evidence reported in a recent study published by the Institute of Fiscal Studies, shows that economists are amongst the highest paid of all professional groups.

You’ll be able to make use of the University’s dedicated careers service to help you to take your next step after graduating.
