The Keio University Graduate School of Business and Commerce, through a grant from the World Bank, established a master's degree Program in Taxation Policy and Management in April 1996.The Graduate School offers the Program with substantial cooperation from the National Tax College.
The purpose of this program is to help participants from the World Bank member countries gain knowledge and expertise in tax policy and administration so they can help improve taxation practices in their own countries.
Program completion requires students to be enrolled in the graduate school for two years and complete the required number of credits from the curriculum prepared for the Program. In addition, students must complete at least 8 internship credits at the National Tax College. The Program requires individuals to submit a research thesis, as well as pass the final examination based on thesis and seminar presentations.
