MSc in Taxation Alumni Reunion
The first alumni reunion for the MSc in Taxation programme was kindly hosted by Pinsent Masons at their offices in London on Thursday 21st March 2019. It was an excellent opportunity to be able to meet members of the Pinsent Masons tax department. The event was attended by 30 MSc in Taxation students, alumni and staff members, including three programme directors, Professor Judith Freedman, Professor Michael Devereux, Professor John Vella and programme co-founder, Visiting Professor Philip Baker QC.
While enjoying drinks and canapés, guests networked and shared interesting stories. It was great to hear about the career successes of past and current MSc in Taxation students.
The MSc in Taxation, which began in September 2016, is a postgraduate degree offered by the Oxford University Faculty of Law, and is taught in association with the Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation based at Saïd Business School. The degree aims to accommodate both those who are engaged in full-time careers and those who are taking a break but have other duties and responsibilities. This flexibility is particularly important because the MSc in Taxation has been designed as a part-time degree to appeal to a range of students from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds.
These unique features of the MSc in Taxation make it the ideal degree for practitioners in law and accounting firms who wish to move from a technical to a deeper understanding of taxation: insights that will help propel their career forward. This approach also makes this the degree of choice for those working in revenue authorities and treasury departments, as well as for those contemplating an academic career in taxation.
