Teaching

  • lectures
  • workshops
  • tutorials
  • statistics sessions

We also offer an extensive range of opportunities to supplement your learning in the form of industry speakers, workshops, placements, and presentations.

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.
