Education in Taxation

CATRC is spearheading the development of Tax Education at KIMEP University                                   
CATRC working jointly with other academic units works towards development of Tax Specialization at KIMEP University.
There is hardly any University in Kazakhstan and Central Asia, which would have a comprehensive tax education and tax specialization.
This is despite the fact that there is high demand for tax specialists and tax professionals as well as qualified tax policy makers and tax administrators.
The first tangible outcomes are specialization (Minor in Taxation) in the following programs:
- Master of Laws (LL.M.)
- Bachelor of Business (BSc.)
- Bachelor of Law (LL.B.)
Additional efforts are being made to gradually build a PHD program and also specialized Master's program in Taxation.
