Welcome to the MCA programme!

The Master's in Customs, Taxation and International Trade Law aims to prepare customs practitioners in the public and private sector for careers as strategic managers. 

The MCA programme starts each October and lasts 20 months on a part-time basis. It consists of monthly seminars and self-study: the online seminars are held on three Saturdays of each month (09.00 - 18.00) and the last six months are spent writing the Master's thesis.

The MCA is offered by the WWU Münster, one of Germany’s leading universities and the AWA Foreign Trade Academy, the largest private provider of customs training in Germany.  

Upon successful completion of the course, graduates are awarded the unique degree "Master of Customs Administration" (MCA) from the Law Faculty of the WWU Münster.

The programme has been nationally accredited (AQAS) and is recognised by the World Customs Organisation (WCO) as complying with its PICARD standards.
