WHY THIS PROGRAMME?

The general objective of The Master Programme in International Tax Law and EU Tax Law is to provide a deep understanding of major issues of international and EU tax law. International tax law refers to both domestic tax law that has international aspects and tax treaty law. Domestic tax law issues deal with, for example:

how to determine unlimited and limited tax liability,
withholding taxes on cross-border income, and
domestic law on the avoidance of double taxation.

These types of legislation will be discussed from a comparative perspective including special consideration of the legislation of the United States.

The law of the European Union also has an increasing impact on the tax legislation of the Member States and it affects both investors within the EU and investors from other states. The programme includes the study of the effects of the primary law of the European Union on direct taxation as well as the secondary law that has been agreed upon by the Member States (i.e., the anti tax avoidance directive, the merger directive, the parent-subsidiary directive, the interest-royalties directive, and the directive on the exchange of information). The programme includes also an introduction to value added taxation (VAT).

Career

The Master Programme in International Tax Law and EU Tax Law provides you with in-depth knowledge of both of these areas of law. A particular emphasis lies on training of legal reasoning and the use of different sources of law. This knowledge is in demand by employers in the private sector as well as the public sector, including tax law­yers, tax officials, government officials and judges. In addition, as the programme has an international focus, it opens for career opportunities in various countries.

Our graduates work, for example, as doctoral candidates at different Universities, at consultancy firms and at the minister of finance in their home countries.
