Companies have to deal with various tax issues on a daily basis. For this, they need experts who responsibly take care of all tax matters. In addition to the corporate context, these tax experts can also become self-employed as consultants. The ISM Distance Learning Programme Taxation offers you exactly this qualification:
In the ISM Distance Learning Taxation program, you will graduate with a Master of Laws degree and at the same time have the opportunity to prepare for the tax advisor exam during your studies.
We have designed the program in such a way that the modules already include essential content that will be examined as part of the tax advisor exam. In the case modules, for example, you can apply what you have learned to concrete cases from practice or prepare for the tax consultant exam with exams and exercises.
However, we recommend that you take part in an exam preparation course to prepare for the tax consultant exam. This is already included in the study program via our cooperation partner. Please also note: According to § 36 StBerG, further requirements must be met for admission to the tax consultant examination, such as relevant professional experience or the completion of a university degree in economics or law. You can also fulfill these requirements during the master's program.
The distance learning programme Taxation focuses on national and international tax law. You will gain detailed knowledge of tax regulations, as well as their application and effects on economic and social activities.
On the one hand, the programme teaches you the scientific principles, theories and methods that are necessary for a well-founded assessment of tax issues, including the legal framework and regulations. On the other hand, the practical knowledge necessary for applying what you have learned is taught and practised in extensive case studies.
You can study the distance learning programme full-time (4 semesters) or part-time (6 semesters). The part-time model gives you the opportunity to acquire the practical experience necessary to take the tax advisor exam during the Master's programme.
