About the Master in Customs, Taxation and International Trade Law

The Master’s in Customs, Taxation and International Trade Law is offered by the University of Münster, one of the most prestigious universities in Germany. It has been designed for customs practitioners in the public and private sectors who are aiming at a career as strategic managers.

The Master’s course is offered on a part-time basis and lasts for 18 months. The first twelve months consist of monthly seminars and self-study. Two one-week seminars are held in Münster at the beginning and end of the course. Otherwise, the seminars are held each month in Münster for three days (Thursday – Saturday). In addition, participants are to develop and complete a project at their place of work. This component is agreed between the course supervisors and the employer. The final six months of the Master’s course are devoted to writing the Master’s thesis and a report on the workplace project. As a result, the course is designed for professionals and strikes a reasonable balance between the needs of the workplace and the academic demands of a postgraduate course of studies.

The Master’s course presents customs within the context of taxation and international trade law. Thereby, participants will understand the role that customs plays in international trade and how it relates to other areas of trade regulation. The individual subjects dealt with in the course are of practical importance to the private and public sectors. During seminars, participants are encouraged and expected to contribute to discussions and problem-solving activities. Thereby, they will improve their skills specifically for their place of work.

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be awarded the degree “Master of Customs Administration” by the University of Münster. The title of this degree reflects the fact that this course has been specifically designed to produce strategic managers in the field of customs.

The Master’s in Customs, Taxation and International Trade Law has been designed in accordance with the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) and the PICARD Standards of the World Customs Organisation.
