About the course
NYU’s International Tax Program is unique in the world, and the benefit will be yours. You will acquire special knowledge of international tax law and the different tax jurisdictions multinational enterprises are confronted with. In many situations a cross-border investment will lead to double taxation.

We will then compare these rules with the tax law provisions in the European Union.
