ADIT Student Sponsorship Scheme

The Malta Institute of Management (hereinafter “MIM”) and KPMG have launched the second sponsorship scheme in relation to the international qualification of the Advanced Diploma in International Taxation (hereinafter “ADIT”) accredited by the Chartered Institute of Taxation (UK).

ADIT aims to meet the needs of professionals wishing to further their studies and expertise in international taxation and is the leading qualification in tax matters. In Malta this is the sixth (6th) consecutive year that the ADIT is being run. This has mainly been the result of a high demand for ADIT qualified international taxation professionals by the local financial services industry especially since Malta is becoming an increasingly important international hub for international taxation management.

The ADIT programme also has a Malta variant, thereby providing valuable insights in both international and local taxation. The collaboration agreement between MIM and KPMG aims at strengthening the quality of the delivery of the course programme by offering the participants tuition and access to amongst the best local and international experts on the subject.

ADIT includes three papers and participation in a conference addressing local and international taxation topics. The programme will be held in the evening and can be studied on a modular basis.
