What's so good about Economics at Dundee?

The study of Economics as a serious enterprise goes back to the Dundee School of Economics, founded in 1931. Of the many distinguished economists who were members of the Dundee School, the most famous name is that of Nobel Laureate, Ronald Coase.

Today, Economic Studies is committed to preserving that tradition of excellence in research, scholarship and teaching. Our main focus is on applied economics and economic policy. Members of Economic Studies are all actively engaged in research in these areas and seek to enliven and inform their teaching through their own scholarship. Many of the modern debates to which students will be exposed are those in which their teachers have made an active contribution.

Economic Studies is proud of the success of its own members, many of whom have high international reputations. We are equally proud of the success of so many of our graduates and postgraduates in many different walks of life - the civil service, industry, finance and academia.
