LLM International Tax Law


Hi,
I have been admitted to the International Business Tax Law (LLM) at Tilburg University. However, I am having doubts whether I should pursue it because I have read some negative comments about the program on this forum. Will it help me to secure a job in the European job market? Furthermore, does the program also focus on "pure International Tax Law". In other words, will I be able to advise on tax planning structures because I see there is a lot of focus on other subject such as VAT.

In first place congratulations for the admission! I have been admitted to the International and European Tax Law Master at Maastricht University but I have also sent my application to the International Business Tax Law LLM at Tilburg because I had good comments from my professors about this LLM too. I don't have more specific information about the career prospects but in its web it sounds good.
Do you remember how many time took to receive an answer about your admission?
Thanks

Thank you! It took a little bit more than two weeks to hear back from them. I would say 16 to 18 days. In the mean time I have also been accepted to Maastricht. It is a tough decision! I have no idea which of the two Universities I should choose. Did your Professor elaborate why Tilburg is good? Let me know which University you are going to choose.

I'm still waiting for their answer as some documents weren't correctly uploaded to their platform. Well, in fact I have two Professors and each of them recommended me one of this LLM, as well as some others like Viena or Leiden. I don't remember anything in special they remarked about this LLMs, maybe the PBL system that is used in the Maastricht LLM and might be interesting but of course both of them are excellent LLMs in the international taxation field. However, if I'm accepted in Tilburg I will probably arise this question to my Professors and I'll let you know something. I have also speak recently with one student from Tilburg and told me the Professors are excellent and he has enjoyed a lot this LLM and that is suitable both for people with professional experience and also for young graduates (my case). Referring to the career prospects, he only told me that there is no compulsory internship in the LLM so it will be up to the ambitions/possibilities of each one to find an internship and maybe that this year is different due to COVID-19 so he has not found yet an internship for the summer/next year.

No, I didn't take the exam because I have already studied some international tax law so I guess it wasn't necessary for me. However in the FB group of the Class of 2019 there is one example of exam. Good luck!!

Hi,I have been admitted to the International and European Tax Law Master at Maastricht University,  International Business Tax Law LLM at Tilburg University and advanced LLM international Tax Law at University of Amsterdam this year. It's definitely a tough decision, but Tilburg is my final choice, because of my Professor's strongly recommendation. Do you make your final decision? maybe we can create a group to discuss it.
