Fiscal Economics

Are you curious about how taxes affect households and businesses? Ever wondered how the government can regulate oil prices or alcohol consumption through taxation? Are you interested in perspectives on taxation both from economics and from law? Fiscal Economics covers all of these things. In this programme, you’ll use economics, accountancy, management and law to analyse the effects of taxes on national and international economies. Working in small groups, you’ll examine up-to-date, real-life problems and come up with practical solutions.

The programme will give you all the preparation you need to pursue a master’s degree in Fiscal Economics, Financial Economics, International Business (specialisation Accountancy or Controlling) and related fields. But you could also launch your career and make your mark on the workforce. Your independence, confidence and critical thinking skills will be a great asset in a career as a tax advisor, tax consultant or tax inspector. And with the ongoing shortage in fiscal economists, your career perspectives will be excellent.

SBE students

We understand that in these uncertain times it is difficult to assess what the new academic year will look like. These uncertainties logically raise many questions: How about safety in Maastricht and the Netherlands? What will education look like at SBE? What can I expect from student life? We can't give a conclusive answers to all these questions, but we can try to help you as best we can. Please visit the following page to learn more about the educational format for the first two periods, the safety in Maastricht or the introduction days. We look forward to welcoming you on campus!
