School of Business

Learn how companies use funds to generate income and increase wealth and also examine how organisations manage assets, funds, and liabilities

Start date
September 2024
4 or 3 years
Dundee City Campus

This course examines how large corporations use their funds to generate income and wealth in the future. You will learn how UK and overseas capital markets work in the wealth creation process and understand the context in which they operate throughout the global economy.

The globalisation of products and financial markets, the changing nature of information technology, and the emergence of new valuation models are creating a growing need for well-qualified graduates.

Compared to our BAcc Accountancy degree, our Finance degree looks at issues associated with the wider management and planning of financial assets focusing on personal finance, company funding and security market operations. Our Accountancy degree looks more at the recording and reporting of financial transactions within a company.

“I got told all about the student experience at Dundee by another Lithuanian student, who was in his first year at the time studying similar subject. Strong community feeling was prominent and that was very important to me. Also, Dundee was one of a very few institutions offering just Finance degree, so things just fell into places.”
