Course content

The MFin International Finance programme provides you with the skills and training to play an important role in the finance sector and to develop a career in finance. To achieve this the programme provides you with the right mix of applied and theoretical skills to both understand the issues facing firms and how to deal with these issues. The MFin programme benefits from our considerable strength in finance where staff from applied and theoretical finance disciplines have been brought together in the same School.

The MFin International Finance programme is a skills based finance degree that contains 8 finance modules and a short focused finance based business report. The structure of the report has been developed following feedback from employers who indicate that they prefer graduates who are able to write concisely, accurately and clearly in a focused report rather than write in the style of a lengthy and less focused dissertation.

A two week foundation programme at the beginning of the MFin introduces students to a range of concepts in business statistics, economics and finance and includes a unique 'urban experience' event that explores important aspects of team building. The foundation programme introduces you to your fellow students who will become a major part of your learning experience at Dundee and an important network of friends and business connections after you graduate.

The programme includes off campus learning events embedded in some of the modules so as to extend your leaning skills in ways that are directly relevant to the degree and your personal development.

The Distinguished Visitor and Enterprise Gym Lecture Series where distinguished practitioners are invited to hold seminars highlighting critical aspects of business, finance, banking, management, marketing and human resource management.

To enhance your employability after you have completed your programme with us, we offer students the chance to undertake an 8 week internship in China.

This MFin International Finance programme is developed for students who have completed their undergraduate study and are now looking to develop their finance related skills so as to pursue a successful career in the finance sector. We provide a fresh approach to International Finance that is suitable if you have studied economics, business management or accountancy before or if you are new to the subject. Around half of the students on the programme have a business background while the rest of the students come from a very wide range of non-business backgrounds. The programme has been designed with these students with non-business backgrounds in mind while still challenging students whose first degree has been a business related subject.
