Bachelor's, master's, and executive studies
MCT contributes education and research expertise to the following academic programmes:
Combines legal, economical and fiscal courses. You’ll learn all about (international) tax laws and about different types of taxes, such as wage tax and income tax. But it also includes courses on private, administrative and constitutional law. Upon graduation, you’ll be able to advise multinationals, self-employed entrepreneurs, and friends and family about the legal aspects of the tax system.
Use economics, accountancy, management, and law to analyse the effects of taxes on national and international economies. Working in small groups, examine current, real-life problems and find solutions. Build independence, confidence, and critical thinking for in a career as a tax advisor, tax consultant, or tax inspector. A shortage of Fiscal Economists means excellent career prospects.
