MASIT 2017 - 2018

International Individual Curriculum

"Make sure you pay your taxes; otherwise you can get in a lot of trouble."–Richard M. Nixon


"The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax."–Albert Einstein

The above inspirational sentences were applicable in the past, seem to be still applicable nowadays and will be applicable in our short/long term future. That is why MASIT is my reply.


MASIT, after obtaining my Swiss Tax Expert Diploma in Switzerland, provides me with a massive package of notions and practical experience in the global environment of International taxation to boost my personal CV for the years to come.


The International Individual Curriculum allows me to be up-to-date on worldwide tax matters providing technical added value to my international High-net-worth individuals (HNWI) & Ultra-HNWI clients through my (MFO) Multi Family Office Structure.


My preferred covered areas of competence of MASIT are International Tax Policy, Tax Treaties, International Tax Planning and Abuse, Advanced Comparative Taxation, Privileged Tax Regime and Tax Competition, International Succession law, International Estate Planning Vehicles, Taxation of HNWI & UHNWI (focus on residence and citizenship programs),  International Taxation in Selected Industries, Exchange of Information.

International Corporate Curriculum

"MASIT is a rewarding experience. It not only offers theory to international tax law in a conducive setting but is facilitated by leading tax professionals drawing from experience on the various aspects of international tax law to offer real time solutions to emerging challenges. Additionally, the admission criteria to the MASIT based on prior work (tax) experience adds flavor to the program as it brings on board a number of tax professionals drawing from a variety of tax specialties. This enables peer learning and positive critique."

International Individual Curriculum

"The past year has been a wonderful and enriching experience both on personal and academic level. I have met very good friends who I hope to keep for the years to come and I have managed to systemize the knowledge I gained on the job and transfer it into solid analytical background which is adaptable to any situation. I am most grateful to our professors who took time from their main jobs to share their knowledge and experience with us, as well as to the Master Diploma organizers who made it happen in the first place. A particular thank you to Vikram Chand, a great professor, who managers to explain very complicated staff and make it seem easy to absorb. I loved feeling young again, thank you for everything!"
