Teaching Methodology

An innovative tax programme

Fiscal concerns are constantly evolving and increasingly taking into account issues of fairness and sustainability. The Executive Master in Tax Management has always been able to adapt and evolve to meet current and future needs, such as creating courses on ESG, compliance, and CSR challenges. This dynamic approach is inherent to the program's DNA, as it remains attentive to the future challenges of taxation.

The Executive Master in Tax Management spans over 2 years and goes beyond a "vertical" division of the subject matter (direct taxes, VAT, other indirect taxes...). Instead, it takes a transversal approach to the profession, offering a more comprehensive and practical understanding of the situations you encounter.


Additionally, the programme allows you to specialise in three tax domains through certifications.

Many courses offer comprehensive overviews of tax disciplines related to specific sectors of the economy, such as estate planning, banking taxation, and real estate. Some courses focus on advanced finance techniques that cover all taxes associated with these activities.


Several courses are conducted in the form of seminars, utilising the renowned case method, which encourages active student participation and provides a direct application of acquired skills.

"Taxation is a global and crucial issue. Join a vibrant community of dynamic professionals in all areas of taxation."

"By enrolling in the Executive Master in Tax Management, I was able to acquire considerable and in-depth tax knowledge while working at the same time.

The Executive Master in Tax Management allowed me to complete my civil training in law and notarial science and to acquire in-depth knowledge in all aspects of taxation, while developing a network and opportunities."

Chloé Godfroid
Tax Lawyer
Harvest Law Firm
"The Executive Master in Tax Management allowed me to have a global and transversal vision of taxation, which I lacked when I finished my master's degree. The training helped me to be rigorous and organised in my profession and to have good reflexes in my daily practice. From a personal point of view, the Executive Master in Tax Management also means great encounters and a close-knit and diverse group, which helps each other not only in the training but also in our respective practices."
Erel Cavit
ECE Accountancy & Tax
"Knowing and mastering each subject of taxation had become obvious if I wanted to professionally reach a very high level. The Executive Master in Tax Management allows me to remain competitive on a professional level. If I want to remain credible in taxation in in general and in expertise in particular, I must stay up to date and always add more arrows to my bow. The conference managers also push us in this direction by encouraging us to be creative in order to solve all types of cases. "
