The Master of Taxation Studies from University of Auckland is an opportunity for graduates to develop, and for practitioners to update and hone, their knowledge of tax law. Courses are scheduled to take into account work commitments and 15-point courses are all taught intensively over three consecutive days.
The focus of the MTaxS programme is on tax law, with the technical issues explained by academics and practitioners in the field. The courses cover predominantly legislation and case law applicable to taxation, but also draw from disciplines such as economics and accounting.
Inclusion of a major in Taxation as a specialist subject in your degree offers a range of professional possibilities. Tax as a career is less subject to the normal business cycles, and demand for tax professionals is always strong.
