Faculty of Society and Economics, Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences Globalisation has ushered in an age of unprecedented interconnectedness between nations, fundamentally altering many areas of society in the meantime. This change is extremely evident, for example, in national tax systems and related law. For companies, tax and legislative authorities, international taxation has become an important issue with far-reaching implications. 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, particularly in the fields of income tax laws, procedural law and commercial taxation. In later stages, your knowledge base will expand to advanced topics in international taxation and law, for example bilateral agreements and supranational law, which are critically examined and discussed with respect to their supporting legal framework. 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, particularly in the following areas: Transfer pricing, Controlled foreign corporate legislation, Double taxation conventions and International tax planning.
At the same time, the programme is also dedicated to exploring the logical interconnection between business administration, law and general economics. [...] 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.
