What you can offer

You are already familiar with tax law and business administration. You may already be working in financial administration or in a company and you have professional experience in applied tax law. You would like to specialize and also to develop personally, to expand your knowledge on taxation and international accounting and strengthen your competency in consultancy. You are willing to shoulder management responsibilities. You actively analyze changing requirements, applying an interactive approach. You aim to improve your understanding and analysis of global financial developments and interactions.

What we offer you

Our curriculum is also based on close cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Finance. The degree program was developed together with the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Institute of Austrian Certified Public Accountants. The content reflects theoretical know-how and practical experience in the business consulting professions. Numerous experts from the Federal Government and others from chambers and companies lecture in the study courses. You will have the opportunity to exchange expertise with lecturers and study colleagues from financial administrations, certified public accountant chambers and accounting departments of large companies and to establish a strong personal network for your future career. Practical relevance is also guaranteed at our Campus Lecture evenings, which are open to all and feature contributions from prominent experts.

What makes this degree program special

The master degree program builds on the bachelor degree program in Tax Management and is an advanced step in the consistent implementation of a fully-fledged and globally comparable degree program in the field of finances and tax. As opposed to university studies such as law or economy, the part-time master degree program and also the bachelor degree program are interdisciplinary, tailored degree programs which may be completed in the minimum period. It will deepen your knowledge of national and international tax matters.
The focus on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), is tailored for accounting responsibility at international enterprises or the auditing of large companies. The degree program strengthens your consulting competency, especially in the field of business and tax consulting. New Public Management strategies and management tools will enhance your leadership profile.


What you will learn in the degree program

Your expertise will enable you to develop tailored solutions to topical financial issues in the global context.

  • Within the framework of your studies, you will hone your investment and financial skills and your familiarity with income tax laws.
  • An interdisciplinary portfolio of methods, innovative approaches to consulting and quality and knowledge management complement your education.
  • Within the framework of sales tax laws, you will also be dealing with EU value added tax legislation. Courses on international tax law will deepen your knowledge of Austrian international taxation and OECD guidelines. Your know-how will be rounded out with international accounting and risk analysis.
  • You will continue to develop your leadership qualities in the course of your studies. You will train your awareness of self and others (conflict management, intercultural management and organizational development) and learn about assuming managerial responsibility.
  • You will be dealing with the principles of research methodology and will be confronted by research issues and trends in the financial sector that you will then apply in your Master's thesis.
