The bachelor’s programme Taxation (Dual System) links an academic degree in business administration with a vocational training as assistant tax adviser and professional practice. You can thus attain both qualifications in just nine semesters – much less time than it would usually take.
Our cooperation partners for this study programme are the Steuerberaterverband Düsseldorf (Düsseldorf association of tax advisers) and the vocational school Max-Weber-Berufskolleg Düsseldorf.
Vocational schooling at Max-Weber-Berufskolleg Düsseldorf to become an assistant tax adviser is integrated into the first five semesters. At the same time, you complete the practical vocational training in a tax consultancy. Passing the examination to become assistant tax adviser, you attain a professional qualification. The following four semesters combine professional practice in a tax consultancy with the HSD study programme.
During the vocational training, you acquire fundamental subject-specific expertise in the core areas of financial reporting, taxation and law. This reflects the typical link between theory and practice in a vocational training.
The core areas mentioned above are also key components of the academic studies in business administration. The study programme Taxation (Dual System) focuses on attaining a comprehensive understanding of business contexts under special consideration of tax aspects. The specialisation mod-ules cover typical tax issues.
Practical projects and the bachelor’s thesis integrate professional practice into the study programme.
As a graduate, you are able to recognise, analyse and structure business decisions relating to taxation on a scientific basis. You are specialised in developing practice-oriented alternative actions and in decision-making. For the duration of the programme, you gain practical experience by working three days a week in a tax consultancy. Theoretical courses take place at the vocational school and at the university of applied sciences on the two remaining weekdays.
Please note: The language of instruction is mainly German.
The bachelor’s programme Taxation (Dual System) qualifies you to work as a specialist in tax consultancies (including those which also train apprentices) or in corporate tax departments. You also have the possibility to complete subsequent advanced training to become a fully qualified tax adviser.
