The Master of International Development Policy program offers two optional specializations in International Taxation (ITP) and Public Financial Management (PFM). You must indicate your intent to apply to the ITP or PFM within the general MIDP application. Advanced training in tax is more important than ever, as governments must increasingly address tax-related issues in the context of a global economy. The International Taxation specialization within the MIDP program is designed to develop the analytical skills in economics, law and administration needed to initiate and implement successful tax reforms throughout the world. ITP Program graduate urges Liberia to reduce revenue losses by better controlling import tax exemptions. Offered in collaboration with the Duke Law School, the International Taxation program enables leaders in taxation - whether in ministries of finance and planning, regional and local governments, or revenue agencies - to develop the analytical skills and experience to improve tax policy, legislation and administration in a changing global environment. Curriculum and Courses Fellows focusing on International Taxation will take core courses in public finance, comparative tax policy and administration, sales tax/VAT law, federal income tax law, economic principles and analytical methods of taxation, along with required courses covering policy analysis, applied development economics, and preparation of a master's project. In addition, a range of elective courses is available depending on specific interest and length of program undertaken.
