Program description

This Master equips you with the advanced tools needed to understand and manage the complex problems facing companies and governments in the field of international business taxation.

Taxation is an increasingly important determinant for enterprises in their decision-making processes on where and how to invest. Incentives and disincentives created by tax systems affect the behavior of multinational enterprises. Nonetheless, legal considerations are taken into account as well in the decision-making process on whether, where and how to invest. Students acquire in-depth knowledge in the key areas of international business tax law. They learn to understand how tax and legal considerations interrelate.

A Tilburg University Master's in International Business Taxation LL.M. degree offers you:

- The key competencies necessary for a successful career including the ability to gather, process, and analyze information and communicate the results in an effective way.
- The opportunity to customise your degree with a specialized sub-track. Choose between IBTL& Business Organizations and Strategies and IBTL & Globalization.
- An outstanding foundation for a future career. Your graduate degree in law is a qualification in high demand by employers in both the public and private sector.

To the best of our knowledge, there is no real equivalent of this program in the Netherlands or abroad. One of the unique features of the program is that it focuses on concepts and principles underlying tax systems applied worldwide. In addition, it is different from existing Master’s programs in taxation because it has a strong inter-disciplinary approach. One other unique feature is that the program caters for Bachelor graduates in Law without any previous tax education.
