Studying Finance, Tax and Advice at the UoC

Every citizen or company makes financial decisions that may result in taxes due. 
As an expert in the financial and tax field, you can answer the following questions from clients:

Where can I invest my money?
How can my business be financed?
Which and how much tax do I have to pay?
Are there any (legal) tax advantages applicable for me?

Do you enjoy reading, calculating, and advising?
Do you want to work at the tax authorities, an accountancy and tax advisory firm, bank, insurance company, or trust firm? Would you like to advise small and medium-sized businesses on financial and tax matters as an independent professional?

If your answer is yes, this is the right study for you!

The Finance, Tax and Advice (FTA) program prepares you to be able to give professional financial and tax advice to individuals and businesses. There is always a great need for experts in this field, given that financial services are one of the largest and most promising sectors in Curaçao and that tax law is a fairly complex area of law that affects every citizen and/or company.
