We will teach you through

  • lectures
  • workshops
  • tutorials/seminars
  • group-work
  • student presentations

Many of our teaching sessions focus on employability, including guest lectures from industry professionals and industry-run workshops. In previous years we have partnered with EY, BlackRock and IBM, to deliver guest lectures and workshops to give our students first-hand experience of what is required in industry. We also gain the support from a large number of local and national SMEs who offer consultancy projects for our students to work on. These are designed to add to your teaching and offer you more opportunities to plan for your future career by learning directly from business professionals.

We also encourage group work, group projects, student poster presentations and other methods which help to build student confidence and prepare for the business world.

The University of Dundee School of Business is committed to providing students with an exciting, meaningful, and interactive learning experience taking advantage of traditional and leading-edge learning technologies. This hybrid approach to education delivery, which includes both in-person and online material, has been adopted globally by top universities.

Our approach is flexible, attempting to meet the needs of all our domestic and international students. Moreover, our students are assured of an on-campus learning experience for all modules supplemented and complemented by state-of-the-art Cloud technology. A major advantage of ‘hybrid teaching’ is that it allows popular classes to remain small so that meaningful discussion and engagement between students and academics can occur.


Assessments will vary depending on your choice of modules.

You will be assessed through a combination of methods, which may include

  • coursework
  • exams
  • group projects
  • presentations

Some of these are submitted during the semester and others may take place at the end of a semester.

Coursework usually accounts for between 40-50% of the overall degree. This will depend on your final choice of modules.
