We prepare you for the world of work. Where the pressures – and the rewards – can be enormous. We deliver all aspects of business learning including financial planning and decision-making.
Our aim is to train you thoroughly for the challenges and opportunities you come across in your business career. Choose from Accounting and Finance, or Business Management, Marketing or Human Resources.
Studying with us can take you into graduate fast-track management schemes, giving you management roles in a few short years. By contrast, you may become an entrepreneur, and start up your own business or even decide to go freelance. If further study is the route for you, we have several ways for you to advance. We help you solve problems, make decisions and feel empowered.
Whatever you choose, the skills you learn will help you adapt quickly to your work environment, and contribute from the very start. When you leave us, we want you to lead and grow in your chosen field. Everything we do has been created with employment in mind.

You will be working in a fantastic environment. Our teaching takes place in a grade two heritage listed building. Opened in 1909, it was originally Dundee Technical College & School of Art and is the oldest part of the University. Students have studied here for over 100 years, inspired to learn by the history and charm of their surroundings.
The Division has an interdisciplinary research profile spanning three primary subject areas human resource management, enterprise and entrepreneurship, and marketing. It also extends to cognate areas.
The work of the Division primarily relates to the University's Creative Industries & Cultural Vitality and Sustainable Development & Inclusive Living Challenge Spaces.
