Waarom aan de Tilburg University?

track International Business Tax Law & Globalization

This sub-track recognizes that today's global economy is characterized by a high degree of international economic integration.

The sub-track focuses on international economic integration, such as the European Union and the WTO. Numerous links that exist between EU and WTO law and international business taxation are explored, for example in the field of VAT, fiscal expenditure and non-discrimination. This course thus has a clear globalization focus. Next to the five core tax courses, this sub-track contains two mandatory tax-related courses: State aid and Public Procurement and Trade and WTO Law.

track International Business Tax Law & International Business Organizations and Strategies

This sub-track brings together the fields of international business taxation and international business law, such as joint ventures, M&A transactions, venture capital deals and investment funds.

The program subsequently links these topics up with the field of international business taxation. This course thus has a clear business focus. Next to the five core tax courses, this sub-track contains two mandatory tax-related courses: International Business Law I and International Company Law.
