Founded in 1888, Abertay University has trained its students to be part of global industries – from Dundee’s thriving textiles industry of the 19th century, to opportunities in oil, gas, global finance and digital media today.
Career opportunities from the courses at Dundee Business School are both wide and varied, and students have access to a range of exciting business opportunities while studying at the School; from entering global business competitions run by companies such as IBM, to the annual Innovation for Global Growth Week which brings international employers including Heineken, RBS and Tokheim to run practical masterclasses with students.
Dundee Business School’s MSc International Finance and Accounting is specially designed to enable students to establish a professional career within the financial sector – the main engine of growth in modern, open market-based economies.
Employment opportunities are plentiful, on both a national and international scale, and salaries are high for those with professional skills as well as an international focus.
Led by Professor Mohamed Branine, an eminent academic authority in the field of international HRM, this CIPD-accredited programme is focused on contemporary practice, ensuring that students develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to deal effectively, systematically and creatively with the issues of people management that organisations face.

Be Part of the Student Community
Dundee Business School is focused on creating a dedicated community of learning. The campus is compact, with the Student Centre and Library a short walk from the lecture theatres.
The smaller size of Abertay University grants students from all courses the opportunity to meet more peers from different subjects than at a larger institution, as well as greater opportunity to develop close working relationships with their lecturers.
