Maastricht - LLM International & European Tax Law 2017


Who all have got admitted to this program at Maastricht conditionally or unconditionally ?.
Could anyone put some light on the job prospects in the EU for non-Europeans.

Hi Shobhit, I read your posts regarding LLM in Maastricht and other universities. What do you think are the job prospects in EU countries post this course. Also, which one is most preferable? Amsterdam, Maastricht or Leiden for International tax? I work in Deloitte in India in International taxation and I am a Chartered Accountant with close to 9 years of experience. Can you help me with the above questions?

In general, an LLM doesn't enable international mobility in this way. There are many barriers, including but not limited to language, visas, and bar exams, which get in the way.

Although it does happen that people transition to Europe like this, it's not something you should bank on.

A better option would be to try to move to one of the Deloitte offices in Europe. It could be a multi-year process, but your chances are better in this way.

Alternatively: have you considered a ranked MBA in a EU country where you speak the language? If you already speak professional level Dutch an MBA in the Netherlands could be a good option, since MBAs are better enablers of international mobility than LLMs (by far).
