Tax deductions

Each country has its own tax deduction policies and there are always opportunities to benefit from tax deductions. Although we are happy to assist you, it is not feasible to investigate the intricacies of every country’s tax system in advance.


Since it is impossible to list every opportunity here, we suggest researching financial assistance offered from your own country to finance your Executive MBA. Alternatively, reach out to the MaastrichtMBA team; we are happy to help you explore your options.
