Posted by William Byrnes on June 15, 2021

The International Tax Certificate and Master Degree are designed for international tax professionals (either lawyers or accountants, economists, and finance) to deliver specialized legal training for an in-depth understanding of the international tax risk management field’s changing complex legal aspects. Courses begin in late August, mid-January, and mid-May each year.

This graduate-level International Tax certificate or Master’s degree will prepare new and experienced international tax professionals to effectively address complex legal and policy challenges with respect to global tax risk. Specifically, participants will be exposed to (i) important U.S. and international laws, regulations, and policies in the international tax risk management field, and (ii) technology, data, and practice, as well as applications of law and regulation through case studies through a weekly-based structure. Individuals who complete the program will be able to synthesize scenarios, practice, and legal regulation in the international tax risk management field, providing analysis or judgments for consideration to organizational leadership with a nuanced perspective.

Courses are offered by asynchronous distance learning to provide a flexible schedule for working professionals. Interactive coursework includes case study assignments and regular interaction with classmates & the faculty through twice-weekly zoom meetings (recorded), pre-recorded videos, audio casts, discussion boards, and group breakout sessions.  For more information, contact Admissions: law.tamu.edu/distance-education/international-tax.
