International Taxation and Law B.A.

Information about the degree program

From the perspective of companies, but also for financial administration or legislators, taxation issues in an international context are of great interest. Thus, in order to understand and appreciate the topic of taxation and law within a global context, this degree programme uses a dedicated international approach to material, tackling a range of issues related to both national and international taxation and law.

In the early stages of this degree programme, you’ll acquire thorough knowledge of national fiscal law. In later stages, your knowledge base will expand to advanced topics in international taxation and law. At the same time, the program places a special focus on the logical combination of economic and legal lectures. Graduates are able to identify and evaluate sophisticated tax issues both in terms of economics and law, as well as develop appropriate, real-world solution concepts.

Thus this programme interweaves a solid theoretical foundation, a practical orientation that incorporates real-world issues, and a cross-discipline, internationally-focused study of taxation and law. In addition to the cooperation with tax consultants of medium-sized or the "Big Four" companies from home and abroad as a lecturer, some of our professors themselves have experience as a tax consultant or lawyer. In addition, there are international cooperations and projects with foreign universities. Your academic success is also ensured by the modern equipment with specialist literature and its own tax laboratory.

The programme is taught in English, which allows you to refine your overall proficiency and develop not only effective business communication skills, but also an excellent command of English tax and finance terminology, boosting your employability in the international job market.

Also part-time possible!
