Prof. Dr Pasquale Pistone (Academic Chairman of IBFD) has, in consultation with Prof. Dr Sjoerd Douma (Director of the UvA-IBFD Advanced LLM in International Tax Law), recently appointed Prof. Jan J.P. de Goede (Senior Principal Tax Knowledge Management at IBFD) as liaison officer on behalf of IBFD with respect to operational aspects of the highly prestigious UvA/IBFD Advanced LLM.
In this new position, he will interact with Prof. Douma and other UvA colleagues and consult with Prof. Pistone. As Academic Chairman of IBFD, Prof. Pistone remains responsible, on behalf of IBFD, for policies and content related to the Advanced LLM.
The UvA-IBFD Advanced LLM on International Taxation is ranked among the world’s best master programmes. It will start this year on 31 August with approximately 25 students from various backgrounds, experiences and countries. The educational format will be online until January 2021, and is designed in such a way that teaching, learning and exchange of information will be made interactive and attractive. In order to encourage development and application of the acquired knowledge, the programme will consist of tailored videos and interactive case studies.
The library support traditionally provided by IBFD will be available online, while the social interaction between students and relaxation (which is equally important) will be facilitated through various COVID-19 proof events. We are sure that this generation of students will find their participation in the programme to be technically excellent and challenging, and beneficial to their careers in tax.
