Focusing on financial economics, you will combine core economic skills with current and fast-changing theories around financial markets.

This degree starts out on the same path as our Economics course. Following this BSc degree, you will have a stronger interest in the science, technical based subjects.

Economists examine how societies attempt to make the best use of their scarce resources, so that they can advise governments, individuals, and companies on how to improve decisions and outcomes.

Traditionally they have advised on investment, production, inflation, interest rates, and prices. Increasingly however economists also examine policies to:

  • address climate change
  • address inequality
  • improve healthcare

You'll learn the techniques to specialise in financial economics, research and forecasting.

Our Economics course focuses 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. We also have a three and a half year Financial Economics - accelerated BSc (Hons) available for Rest of UK and International students.

“I continued to build on the foundation of my Dundee undergraduate degree and completed my postgraduate degree in Economics. I regularly use marginal economics for example to build supply/demand models or understand if the marginal ton from the refinery LP (linear programme) is economic to produce or not.”
