Course content

At Dundee we aim to help you develop a better understanding of accounting and finance practices, skills and techniques needed for a variety of exciting careers. A major part of modern finance study involves examining the way in which large corporations use their funds to generate income and wealth in the future in an increasingly globalised accounting and reporting environment. Throughout your studies, we want you to understand the power and limitations of accountancy and financial techniques and how they can help society to function.

The programme emphasises the role played by capital markets both in the UK and overseas in this wealth creation process and highlights their importance in the global economy.

Students studying accounting and finance are taught by staff who have either practical experience working in this sector or who have gained insights into financial and accounting practices through research of analysts, company directors and market traders. These insights from practice help inform the teaching of accounting and finance at Dundee.

Overall, this programme is designed for students who have an undergraduate degree in Accounting and/or Finance but who want to study the subject in greater depth.
