Summary

Overview

The Master of Taxation 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. It also provides an opportunity for students to progress to study for the leading Irish professional tax qualification, AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA), and become a member of the Irish Tax Institute.

The practice of taxation, both domestically and globally, has grown significantly in complexity and importance over the last two decades, creating exciting and dynamic opportunities nationally and internationally for tax experts. The Master of Taxation was developed by the Department of Accounting and Finance in the Kemmy Business School in collaboration with the Irish Tax Institute, in response to the expressed needs of the tax profession. It offers students the opportunity to be educated in tax in a holistic, integrated and sustainable manner. Graduates from the programme will be entitled to exemptions from Part 1 (full) and Part 2 (partial) of the Irish Tax Institute professional exams, subject to minimum grade requirements.

Taxation is technical and interdisciplinary, taking in elements of law, economics, computational techniques, social sciences and critical theory. The Master of Taxation 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.

Among the core aims of the programme are to equip students with the following:

  • The sustainable tax technical skill required for personal and corporate tax compliance and consulting work;
  • An understanding of the underlying theory behind the discipline, the techniques of taxation and their implications in a social context;
  • An ability to appreciate the ethical aspects of personal and corporate tax planning and the protection of the national tax base;
  • The tools necessary to research technical tax issues;
  • The research skills necessary to formulate, conduct and report on an independent piece of academic research;
  • Key personal and professional skills including decision-making, collaboration, communication, critical thinking and presentation skills.
