The Master in Corporate Tax Law at the Paris Dauphine University is an intensive degree which equips its students with an expertise in corporate taxation. The courses take place over a period of 6 months from September to March. This section of the course can be considered the theoretical part which is complemented by a compulsory internship which can take place in either a law firm or the tax team of a company. During their training, students receive courses in international tax law, domestic tax law as well as complementary courses on the fundamentals of corporate finance and accounting. These additional courses give the students a multidisciplinary view of taxation.
Thanks to a teaching team mixing both lecturers and renowned tax practitioners, the course has a clear focus on the practice of a tax professional. The English section of the course also allows students to fit into international tax departments. The teaching project puts a strong emphasis on practice and includes in its program the specific skills that are required to become a competent professional in the rapidly evolving business and tax environments.
Throughout the year seminars and training courses presented by high profile practitioners and tax experts on key corporate tax law issues and current legislation are provided to complement the modules in the syllabus. Furthermore, during the year students must write an article, under the guidance of a lecturer or a tax specialist to be published in the Master’s Corporate Tax Law Review.
