Growing demand for specialists
The growing globalisation of the world economy brings with it a growing demand for international tax law specialists. Specialists that have a thorough understanding of the underlying principles, are familiar with the policy perspectives of countries at differing stages of development and are aware of the practical implications of the law. The UvA joins forces with IBFD to meet that demand.
About the study programme
The advanced Master’s in International Tax Law is a full-time programme of one year. The curriculum covers both the established framework of international tax law and emerging issues. A fundamental premise is that a proper understanding of this area of the law requires studying both the ‘big picture’ and the technicalities. Optional courses allow you to give your study a regional focus.
Major themes of the programme include:
- Examining the interaction among the various forces that shape international tax law - domestic law, bilateral treaties, multinational agreements, intergovernmental organizations, case law and academic writing.
- Evaluating the tax policy choices made by states, particularly in the context of cross-border structures and the flow of capital, income and persons.
