Master's in European and International Tax Law

LL.M or MSc with a major in Tax Law | 1 year | 60 credits

Taxes are at the heart of many decisions in business and government. In a world where trade is global, knowledge of only domestic rules is inadequate. With our Master’s in European and International Tax Law you will be able to help businesses and institutions operate in a worldwide context with the European Union’s legal framework in focus.

The Master's in European and International Tax Law prepares you for a career within law firms, multinational audit and tax agencies, tax divisions in multinational companies as well as finance departments and other government tax policy institutions.

The European Union is one of the world’s largest and most important economies. Those interested in doing business within EU member states must know the tax rules and practice of relevant laws. In this programme you will gain a deeper understanding of the European Union’s legal system and how the tax laws of EU’s internal market operate in a crossborder context. Furthermore, you will learn how to find and use EU and international legal material.

We offer you a unique combination of specialist courses in both direct and indirect taxation with special focus on EU law. The courses are designed to meet the demands of the market for cutting-edge knowledge on multi-jurisdictional tax issues.

The programme provides you with access to an international faculty with state-of-the-art knowledge in the field and experience from working with the courts and institutions of the European Union and in private practice of tax law.

Due to our close connections with the business community our courses feature guest lectures by highly specialised professionals providing you with practical and theoretical insights on European and International tax law issues. During the programme, you will meet with tax practitioners working with these issues from, for example, EY and Deloitte.
