Recently, student of the DDP Andrea Zuluaga from Aruba visited us here at Maastricht University. She flew over to discuss her thesis project :-)
Watch the video for an impression of Andrea's experience!
Are you passionate about taxes? Do you have a bachelor’s degree in financial law, economics, business administration, or a related field? And are you ready to take the next step in your career? Then you should consider doing the American specialisation of the master’s in International and European Tax Law. This one –year master’s programme is jointly offered by Maastricht University and the University of Aruba. It focusses on corporate taxation and international tax planning with particular reference to Europe and the Americas. You’ll combine legal and economic approaches with policy and practice, and you’ll gain insight into the interdependence of corporate structures, investment, cross-border employment and tax law. Upon graduation, you’ll find yourself in an enviable position. Thanks to their broad knowledge of financial and business matters, many of our graduates are highly in demand on the job market. And the international orientation of your degree will open up job opportunities in many different countries.
Watch the video and find out why Andrea came to Maastricht from Aruba to work on her master’s thesis and how she realised that this master’s programme is so much more then only studying literature: “it is an excellent preparation for my professional practice”.
Taking the Double Degree Programme in International and European Tax Law has been one of the best decisions I've ever made.
If you’re looking for a happy work-life balance, Aruba is the perfect destination for you! I’m very lucky to have discovered this program and to have embarked on a career specialization that is challenging, interesting, and most importantly, growing, as the digital economy is expanding and testing traditional constructs of taxation.
The first students of the double degree programme in International and European Tax law received their diploma. By successfully completing this one-year master’s programme, the nine graduates simultaneously acquired the Master of Laws in International and European Tax Law from Maastricht University (UM) and Master of Laws in Aruban Law from the University of Aruba.
