Ranked #47 Best Masters in Taxation Globally

Taxation is technical and interdisciplinary, taking in elements of law, economics, computational techniques, social sciences and critical theory.  The tax profession, both domestically and globally, has grown in complexity and importance over the last two decades, creating exciting and dynamic opportunities nationally and internationally for tax experts.  This programme, offered by the Department of Accounting and Finance in the Kemmy Business School, University of Limerick, and developed in collaboration with the Irish Tax Institute, offers students the opportunity to be educated in tax in a holistic, integrated and sustainable manner in response to the expressed needs of the tax profession.  Graduates from the programme will be entitled to exemptions from Part 1 and Part 2 of the Irish Tax Institute professional exams subject to minimum grade requirements.  The programme creates a distinctive opportunity for students to take their knowledge of taxation beyond the practice of compliance and planning to a deeper understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of the discipline.  It also provides an opportunity for students to progress to study for the leading professional qualification, AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA), and become a member of the Irish Tax Institute.

This programme aims to provide students with a thorough grounding in the knowledge and application of taxation theory, law and practice as applied to individuals and corporate entities both nationally and internationally.
