The University of Amsterdam and the world’s leading tax research institute, IBFD, have combined their expert knowledge to create a unique Advanced Master’s programme in International Tax Law. This one-year, full-time programme is based in the diverse and cosmopolitan city of Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
The advanced Master’s in International Tax Law is a full-time programme of one year. The curriculum covers both the established framework of international tax law and emerging issues. A fundamental premise is that a proper understanding of this area of the law requires studying both the ‘big picture’ and the technicalities. Optional courses allow you to give your study a regional focus.
At least one course in your study programme is part of the Amsterdam Law Practice, our unique experiential education. A contemporary way of learning, in which you learn by doing and develop your professional identity by reflecting on who you are as a legal professional.
‘Our faculty is not only academically excellent but also connected to the practice: private practice, tax authorities, government and the judiciary. Our ambition is to train highly-skilled, good international lawyers who stand out in the market and can make a difference!’ – Prof. dr. Sjoerd Douma
‘There has never been a more exciting time to study international tax law than now – the topic is firmly on the public agenda and you can see the whole field developing before your eyes just by reading the news.’ – Dr. Joanna Wheeler
‘We make sure that the students stay up-to-date on current developments by organizing technical meetings throughout the year. During these meetings, we discuss topical issues with our students, e.g. the impact of MLI, or EU State aid law or issues related to taxation of digital economy.’ – Mr. Vassilis Dafnomilis
The programme is an Advanced LLM and, in my view, the best programme in EuropeMaster’s student Gaetano Read more interviews with students
There is an urgent need for professionals with a thorough understanding of international tax law. Therefore, the Advanced Master's International Tax Law is an important specialization. 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.
