What do our Business Management graduates say?

Our Business Management graduates will always be our strongest advocates, so check out what Katie MacDonald, Commercial Officer at JFD Global, had to say about her time at Abertay University.

As a small university, Abertay is able to provide students with a personal experience. I was able to get to know my lecturers well, which made it easier to raise and discuss any questions or concerns about tasks. The programme has some great members of staff, who fill the programme with opportunities and industry links.

Katie was part of our BA (Hons) Business Management class of 2018.

Why Dundee?

Dundee is going through something of a cultural rebirth.

It was named by The Wall Street Journal as one of the world’s hottest destinations, helped greatly by the £80m V&A Dundee, the stunning design museum, which opened its doors in 2018.

Dundee is a little pot of gold at the end of the A92 - The Guardian

It’s an extremely friendly city, which is small enough to get from A to B by foot, but large enough to have great shopping and vibrant nightlife.

Dundee is a contemporary city full of energy and vision—it has one of the highest student population ratios in the UK—and it’s the perfect environment for an Accounting and Finance student to learn their trade.
