The LL.M. program significantly enriched my professional knowledge. I met colleagues from all over the world and surely the best academics and practitioners. The program covers the most current topics and newest trends in international taxation. The part-time program gives sufficient flexibility for those working and, as it is located in Vienna, it provides for a nice combination of serious studies with various cultural events and touristic attractions. For those wishing to gain a global professional perspective on taxation, this is the best place to be.

It is always said that studying the LL.M. program of Prof. Lang is one of the best learning experiences in the world for those interested in international taxation. I fully agree. In my case, this is not only because of the high-level academic and practical analysis of international tax law, but also because of its particular importance for both my professional career as a tax attorney and my personal life, as I was able to meet the best tax experts and colleagues to work with and to develop long-standing friendships with. Both academically and personally, studying in this LL.M. program in Vienna was the best decision I could have ever made.

The LL.M. Program represents one of the most remarkable periods of my life from both a personal and a professional perspective. The friendly environment favors interaction with professors and other students, some of them valuable friends now. WU offers all the necessary infrastructure at the incredibly modern and beautiful Campus, situated in a lovely and efficient city. This atmosphere matches perfectly with the highly demanding program, conducted by some the most important names in international tax law, literally from all over the world. I feel privileged for being part of this family that helped me to reach another level of understanding on international tax issues.

I really enjoyed the LL.M. Program in Vienna for various reasons, such as meeting people from all over the world, enjoying the different styles of teaching, and extending my professional knowledge in international taxation. I am using the knowledge gained in international taxation in my daily business and our firm.

The LL.M. Program has the knack of attracting tax professionals from around the world. A tax professional would get the wings attached to her or his dream by pursuing an international tax program with WU. I am one of the tax professionals who had the dreams of pursuing an international career specializing in taxation and the LL.M. Program has led me towards achieving the wings to fly high and explore the international tax topography.

Maurizio Di Salvo, Italy
My personal experience with the LL.M. Program can be summarized with one word: “growth”. I grew and developed my knowledge of international tax law, and achieved a subsequent growth in my professional activities, and a growth in the relationships with other colleagues from all over the world - many of whom now are my friends. The LL.M. Program in Vienna is really a big opportunity to invest in oneself.

Ioana-Felicia Rosca, Romania
The entire year was a continuous set of interactions and lectures held by the authors of the top tax articles and books one reads before even considering going on a journey such as the one of this LL.M. From representatives of the Committee on Fiscal Affairs of the OECD, including the leader of the OECD/G20 BEPS Project, to leaders in International Tax Law in the Austrian Ministry of Finance to former Chief Tax Treaty Negotiator of Australia, to numerous visiting professors from leading universities around the world and international organizations such as the IMF, all came together in one place making the program absolutely remarkable and inspirational. For me the LL.M. has been one of the most memorable experiences and indeed a transformative one.

Tian Xu, China
After finishing the LL.M. program, I joined a Zurich-headquartered Swiss law firm with offices in China and had the opportunity to work for a large number of European and North American clients spanning a broad spectrum of industry sectors. In 2009, some colleagues and I decided to embrace a new challenge, i.e. to open a law firm that, with its presence in Shanghai, Taipei and Hong Kong, could support international clients with business in the Greater China Area. Since then I have been heading our firm’s office in Shanghai and, luckily, have been recognized by Chambers & Partners and Asia Law as a leading practitioner for the past six consecutive years. Back then, as a student wandering through the streets of Vienna, I never dreamt of one day being a lawyer representing Lufthansa, Lindt & Sprüngli or Breitling. In hindsight I am convinced that our LL.M. program laid a solid foundation for this international career.
