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.
The two main branches of the profession are tax advisory and industry on the one hand, and government on the other. Other possibilities include the judiciary, inter-governmental organisations such as the OECD and United Nations, and academia. This programme also provides an ideal basis from which to embark on a PhD.
Please note that, with regard to the ADIT qualification (Advanced Diploma in International Taxation) of the UK Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT), students who have written an LLM thesis on a tax law topic may submit this thesis in satisfaction of the ADIT thesis option, subject to approval. Consequently, in order to acquire the ADIT qualification, students then need to pass only two of the three exams, namely Paper 1 and either Paper 2 or 3.
