LLM International Tax Law in Vienna for a South American accountant


Hello people

Let me introduce as a Peruvian accountant with some years of experience in the Peruvian taxation. I am considering two options to study abroad:

-Master in Accounting and Finance in Scotland or
-LLM International Tax Law in Vienna

Based on the fact that I would like to work abroad (Europe or UK) after I finish the master. What do you think? What is the most recommendable choice?

I hope you can help me

I think if you want to work in the UK itself, then you should consider studying there. I don't know if you have looked at it, but LSE offers an MSC in Accounting and Finance as well, and is an excellent University.

For Tax in the UK you probably want to consider (and this is is no particular order) all of the London Universities:
Queen Mary
LSE
Kings College
and the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS) (Philip Baker is the course convenor here, and is a world leader on international tax issues. You will find other posts on this board talking of him.) Conversely, it is the youngest of the Taxation qualifications in the University of London.

Philip Baker's course though is particularly open to those without a Law background - it is an MA in Taxation (Administration, Law, and Practice).

Similarly, King's College offers an MA in Taxation for those without a law background, but their course offering is not nearly as broad as the the IALS.

I doubt Queen Mary (excellent tax staff!) will permit you on to the course without a law background, and I would also doubt the same for LSE.

In terms of an LLM in International Taxation, you wont find one in the UK. In the LLM sphere Queen Mary may offer the best modules in International Tax if you can get on the program with your background. Of the MA's the IALS has the best international tax modules. Neither offer a full qualification in International tax. Both are regular Tax LLMs/MAs with international tax modules.

I am presently in the UK but will be in Holland next year on the Adv. LLM in International Tax at Leiden University - have you checked them out?
