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.
After the summer we can come back to campus! The government has recommended organising education without metre-and-a-half social distancing as of August. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that, at the start of the new academic year, we expect all students on location for their education-related activities. On this page, we explain what education activities and introduction activities will look like at the School of Business and Economics as of September.
For specific questions, we have FAQ's for students.
